Pawfect Pet Adoption

Our project is a site that allows users to put their pets up for adoption or find a pet to adopt. We have multiple features that make pet adoption a fun and easy process for the user. Pawfect Pet Adoption was created using HTML and CSS.

2.7 million adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized in the United States every year, simply because the number of pets coming into shelters is greater than the number of people considering adoption when looking for a pet. Our goal is to help these animals find a home. We want to provide users with an interactive experience as they find their animal companion.

Pawfect Pet Adoption is a platform that caters to people who want to either find a new home for their pet or find a new pet for their home. Our site provides multiple features such as Shelter Locator, the Pet Help Forum, and a Pawfect Pet For You Quiz to help users search for the “pawfect” pet to bring home.

We faced a lot of problems as we coded our project. Each issue seemed to be more time-consuming than the last. For instance, we wanted our login prompt to appear with a “Login/Registration” header, but when we added the code, the Login tab itself didn’t function. A common theme in the issues we faced was not having the site carry out the exact vision we had for each feature. We had to “settle” a lot of the times, either because the necessary code was too complex, or the code we wanted to use didn’t work with HTML5.

However, we managed to solve most of our issues by referring to resources such as w3schools.com and Stack Overflow.

"This is a fun and useful resource for aspiring pet owners!"
