Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) November 1, 2010
TheOtherDogs.com, a website bringing attention to dog adoption in Arizona, officially launched today. The website is a resource for both Arizona dog organizations and those interested in adopting dogs in the state.
The website is the product of Aaron Shoemaker and Dustin Christensen, who created TheOtherDogs.com in an effort to curb dog overpopulation in Arizona and ultimately, to save the lives of dogs who are at risk of unnecessary euthanization. The goals of the website are to improve the quality of life for sheltered dogs, and to decrease dog overpopulation by raising awareness of local dog adoption events, agencies, as well as spaying and neutering procedures.
âBetween overcrowded shelters and a weakened economy that has led more families to give up their dogs, the need for dog adoption has never been greater,â said Christensen. âOur goal with The Other Dogs is to reach those who are interested in dog ownership but arenât aware of the many adoption opportunities available.â
TheOtherDogs.com provides objective, practical information for those interested in the dog adoption process, from start to finish. Visitors to the site can find local dog agency listings, upcoming adoption events and various ways to help Arizona dog organizations. According to Christensen and Shoemaker, The Other Dogsâ benefits are twofold: the site will help educate the general public, while also providing dog rescues and shelters with valuable â and free â promotion.
âWe are using our marketing and web designing experience and backgrounds to give local shelters and rescues the online presence they might otherwise lack,â said Shoemaker. âMost local agencies have limited budgets and personnel, so creating a well-developed online strategy can be difficult or near impossible. We want to alleviate this problem by providing dog agencies with a high-quality, marketable website where they can get their message out to as many people as possible.â
The Other Dogs is currently working with several local agencies to decrease shelter overcrowding and increase awareness of adoption, dog fostering and other solutions. The website welcomes partnerships with local organizations and hopes to make a significant impact on the quality of life for adoptable dogs in Arizona.
All revenue from TheOtherDogs.com will be donated to local dog rescues and shelters. To learn more about The Other Dogsâ mission and dog adoption in Arizona, visit TheOtherDogs.com.
