Interactive services map on your website?

  • 1.  Interactive services map on your website?

    Posted 08-10-2021 01:53 PM
    Hello! 

    I am curious if there are any organizations that currently have an interactive map on their website for the public to locate human-animal services? 

    If your organization has one, can you share the link? 

    I'd love to see a few examples! 
    Please also let me know if you used GIS or Google Maps!  THANKS SO MUCH!

    Jamie, 
    Have you checked out Feeding Pets of the Homeless's website? After you enter your address in the "Search for Help Near You" field on the homepage, you are brought to a Google map that lists Food & Supplies, Shelters, Resources, and Donation Sites near you. It's pretty awesome! 

    If you missed it, @genevieve frederick, President and CEO of Feeding Pets of the Homeless gave a presentation on the 8/2/21 Shelter & Rescue Support call. I'm sure she can answer any questions about their process.  ​

    Hi Jamie!

    My Pit Bull is Family also has a couple of interactive databases: one for pet-inclusive housing and one for community partners.

    These are all such great suggestions!  I am hoping the Human Animal Support Services Ecosystem Mapping Toolkit comes out soon!

    oh wow! These two are really cool. Thanks for sharing!

    I feel like I've seen many others here and there, but can't remember who... would love to know HOW this is accomplished so it can become a norm on animal shelter websites - GIS or Google Maps or other platforms?

    I know San Diego Humane Society has an amazing number of community resources on their website.  Hi @Staci Hurley
    I wonder if mapping is in the works?   At the very least this bundle of webpages are a good frame for "services" to think about.

    Hi Amber,
    That's a great question! I am going to loop @Lauren Rogers back in. Support services is her area of expertise.

    Lauren , do you know if we have any plans to add the mapping to our website?

    Thank you!​

    @Staci Hurley not that I am aware of, but definitely a good idea to be thinking about!​
