Adopt shelter animals!
Alise B, Bonnie C, Michelle L, Gargi T
We are raising awareness to forgotten shelter animals through our website and game. Our website provides multiple sources to adopt animals and donate to shelters. The game is a fun way of allowing the users to discover individual shelter animals that are available for adoption.
- Homeless animals outnumber homeless people 5:1.
- Approximately 6.5 million companion animals enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide every year.
- Each year, approximately 1.5 million shelter animals are euthanized.
We are bringing awareness to the issue by providing multiple resources to help get people involved in making change.
We also used the Petfinder API, and it was difficult to understand how to manipulate large amounts of data. We were able to access the individual pet information for the end of the game.
Lastly, we had to work on figuring out how to format our website using CSS and HTML so that we could incorporate many different aspects for the website (game, links, quiz, etc).
