How Do I Look?

Hi everyone! I’ve been working hard at tweaking this blog-site – trying to create a top level resource of animals available for adoption in Perth, Western Australia. I am still very much in developmental stages here and will continue to change things around until I’m happy with the outcome… there is much to do!

Meantime, I wanted to explain a few of the changes and how you can use them. Apart from the obvious change in look and layout, the main change I would like to draw your attention to is the menu bar at the top where you will see many drop-downs.  Here’s a quick explanation of the main ones:

Pet Adoption

Click on this and you’ll see all the animals I have posted that are currently available (as far as I know) for adoption. You can then click on Cats/Dogs/Horses, etc to look at only those types of critters. I also have sub categories under some of the animals where I provide direct links to animal rescue sites with pets available for adoption. I’m currently only linking in to Western Australian listings but if my readers would like me to link in to Australia wide listings – please let me know and I’ll see if I can do that without making it too hard to find local animals. If you have a website that features WA animals needing adoption and would like me to link to your site, please let me know. For the pet shopper… these listings and links should provide a very easy way to find animals needing their help, in real time.

There’s also a Foster Me section where all foster posts are available for viewing.  If you’re keen to foster a pet to buy them precious time, this is the tab for you!

Happy Endings is a lovely place to visit to see just how many animals are being saved – it’s soul food baby!

Animal Action Alerts is a link to the e-newsletters that are created periodically showcasing several animals available for adoption and including lots of interesting links on such topics as  environmental issues, animal rights, green living, social justice, recipes, product reviews and more.  These e-newsletters are an education and a great way to get the word out for the most needy animals.  Best of all,  it’s free to subscribe!  I hope you enjoy them.

Lost Cats & Lost Dogs

These tabs feature only the animals I have blogged about so far.. but I plan to provide some extra external links when I find them.  If you know of Perth web-based listings of lost animals, please let me know the URL so I can link to them.

Conscious Consumer

This link shows you all posts I have done relating to environmentally friendly and animal friendly topics.  The subcategories give you extra info on the various topics relating to ethical shopping.

Beauty links to any product reviews I have done, and also provides some sub categories of other product reviewers.  Again, if you know of some good websites that review cruelty free beauty products, please do let me know so I can expand on this topic.

Choose Cruelty Free links straight to the Choose Cruelty Free website that has a comprehensive list of all Australian companies that have been accredited as authentic Cruelty Free producers.  This is an invaluable resource that I refer to constantly – I hope you find it helpful too.

Cruelty Free Shop is an online Australian store that sells all vegan (completely cruelty free) products.  I will expand on this link area too in the near future to include other online retailers.

Recipes tab links to recipes I’ve blogged about and the sub categories link to external sites that feature cruelty free recipes.

Veganism tab links to any posts I’ve written relating to the topic or concept of veganism or animal rights.  The subcatergories are either to external resources or break down my posts into topic specific filters.

Recommended Books

This section provides links to books that expand upon all the concepts covered in this blog and/or in the Animal Action Alerts.  They will primarily cover Animal Rights, Environmental Issues, Lifestyle and Diet.. but this will be an ever evolving lineup.  I plan to build on this section considerably and to also introduce a Recommended Movies section too.

A quick note on external links – With the exception of the Vegan Product List (which is a group I created on Facebook), I have no direct affiliation with any of the external links I provide.  I’m including them on this site because I have either used them, know they do a great job or they provide good information on the topics this blog tries to address. For the pet related external links I’ve included them in an attempt to provide a “one-stop” resource for those seeking an animal to rescue.

So – what do you think?  Please do leave some feedback here so I can learn from you.  I want to provide a website that is functional and applicable to YOU my dear animal loving friend.  I am open to all feedback – contructive critisism is vital so please don’t be afraid to tell it like it is.  I hope you enjoy the new layout and look forward to hearing from some of you.

Yours in critter love…
