Project Description

The Project

An updated website for Alberta’s Second Chance Animal Rescue Society (SCARS).

Alberta’s Second Chance Animal Rescue Society (SCARS) is a non-profit charity registered in both Edmonton and Athabasca, Alberta. It relies on volunteers and donations to operate. Their website is an important part of their business, as Albertans are able to log on and view all of the animals currently available for adoption. Albertans are also able to log on and fill out an adoption form to start the process of adopting an animal.

While we worked with SCARS to update their website, we kept in mind that it would need to be continuously updated. Because of this, we opted to use a customized WordPress platform, with an intuitive visual content editor with drag and drop functionality for easy future updates.

“PDERAS Consulting helped us revamp our website and improve how we administer the adoption of animals through our website. We have a lot of different admin users with many different roles and PDERAS was able to create a back end where they could all do their tasks without affecting other areas of the website. PDERAS has been available throughout the process and is quick to respond to our phone calls and emails. I would highly recommend PDERAS for website development!”

A Focus on Customization

We did our part in reducing the number of homeless and abandoned animals in Northern Alberta.

Our first task was making their website responsive, so that site users can view scarscare.ca across a variety of platforms and devices. After that, we focused on data migration. Each page, post, and animal was brought over from the old website and reformatted. We then created custom post types in order to have animals viewed how the SCARS team thought was best.

We also customized the back-end so that a variety of custom site users, all with different permissions, are available. SCARS required users with a variety of different roles, and so a high level of classification on the back end was required to keep the website organized effectively.
