BRAT's Website Has a New Look

Basenji Rescue and Transport's website has been up and running on the Internet since 1997. Over the years, the site had evolved and continued to run smoothly, but our web designers knew it would need a new, more modern look and feel eventually. They also hoped that, when that time came, developments in programming would also ease time-consuming maintenance issues.

The time has come. In mid-July, Don Kuhwarth (BRAT's Chief information Officer and web developer) took on the arduous task of modifying our site. We think it’s both better looking and easier to navigate.

A site should look good but also run smoothly and have an easy-to-understand structure. Behind the scenes, the immense number of files and components must work together harmoniously. Don has updated the site so it runs smoothly behind the scenes and looks fresh and fabulous for a better user experience. We think you will be impressed with the new site's fonts, colors, layout, and photos.

The new header is neat and tidy, and features the new BRAT logo created by BRAT volunteer Mark Ziegler. Additional information about available Basenjis is an easy click away at a "read more" link. There are "Good, Bad, and Ugly" reality stories, as well as educational features about shedding, dental procedures, and health information, as well as many links to information about food, training, other Basenji sites, and organized activities for you and your Basenjis. And, of course, there are links to BRAT's adoption, volunteer, and donation forms!

If you haven't visited the new and beautifully improved Basenji Rescue and Transport website yet, take a look at www.basenjirescue.org. We'd love to hear what you think!

Kudos and thanks to Don!
