Home For LifeÂ® is an expression of a new kind of animal shelterâ€”the long-term animal sanctuary. We provide animals with loving care, a nurturing environment that is safe and stable, a place to belong and a home for life.
We provide lifetime care for cats and dogs with special needs who cannot find a home, but who can still lead a quality life.
The example of empathy is furthered by our community outreach programs, such as Pet Peace Corps. Sanctuary residents that have been rehabilitated after past rejection and neglect are then able to give back. Through Pet Peace Corps, these animals work with volunteers and staff to help people who themselves may have been overlooked: children affected by domestic violence, at-risk teens, and the elderly.
These community outreach programs complete a circle of empathy for our animalsâ€”they become willing ambassadors of compassion, taking the empathy shown to them and passing it to other vulnerable members of society.
What new functionality we are looking for
The text on our website overlaps in certain areas. We want the website to be sleek and easy to use. The website should also contain MORE PHOTOS of the animals throughout the pages, we want to showcase the beautiful scenery of the Home for Life sanctuary as well as photos of the animals enjoying the wide open spaces.
Also, our animal profiles currently are opened in pop-up pages. We would like to get rid of the pop-up links, and therefore have larger photos of the animals.
We need to keep the functionality of fundraising and forms for donations and subscribing.
It was suggested to us that we should develop in Wordpress.
We would like to get rid of Dreamweaver. Our current photographer refuses to display his photos on our website because the format causes his photos to shrink, or not be entirely viewable.
How the new functionality will help
We want to put the animals as a priority on our website so that visitors know we have the animals' interests in mind, completely. We want to show the animals enjoying their freedom, playing with other animals at the sanctuary and living in peace. Showing the animals living life to the fullest proves to our potential volunteers and donation contributors that their money is going exactly where they want it- straight to the animals.

Home for Life provides a forever home for animals with diseases and disabilities who are often not adopted because of their conditions. Some animals have behavioral problems due to abuse or neglect. Home for Life rehabilitates these animals and provides them with the medical care and attention they need to still live full lives rather than being put down. These animals in turn give back to the community through visits with hospital patients, children suffering abuse, and the elderly.
