September 30, 2014

Washington Animal Rescue League homepageMatrix Group, a digital agency in the Washington, D.C. area specializing in web design, development and e-marketing, announces the launch of a redesigned website for the Washington Animal Rescue League (WARL). 

The oldest animal shelter in the District of Columbia, WARL is dedicated to providing the best quality care for homeless dogs and cats, as well as supporting companion animals in their homes through affordable veterinary care, community outreach and education.

A pro bono client of Matrix Group, underwent a makeover, including an update to its content management system. Matrix Group moved from ExpressionEngine to WordPress. We also updated the website's design and navigation to support its mission of finding homeless animals forever homes and providing affordable, quality veterinary care while continuing to garner the support of the D.C. community.

The newly redesigned website:

  • Features a warm, welcoming design with its calls to action clearly visible on the homepage, as well as within the navigation. The design really captures the compassion of the organization.
  • Makes it easy for you to find a pet on the website. You can search for pets by type, gender and age. You can also take surveys to find the right furry companion based on your lifestyle.
  • Provides an easy and secure way to make donations through the website.

Visitors can also learn about the organization's state-of-the-art veterinary services, trainings and more.

"We are so fortunate to have such a wonderful donor and  partner in Matrix Group," said Bob Ramin, CEO of the Washington Animal Rescue League. "For years now, Matrix Group has graciously provided invaluable support for our organization's website, and our recent 'makeover' is garnering rave reviews. Matrix gave us great advice when choosing WordPress as our new content management system, giving us flexibility and simplicity when updating our site, and we're thrilled with the new site's appearance and user-friendly design. Thank you, Matrix Group, for doing your part to help save the lives of homeless animals."
