Helpful Info

Animals App
I’m relaunching the Animals App Marcel and I worked on during the Valley Fire.  It's goal is to reunite owners and their pets or animals that were separated in the chaos of the rapidly spreading fires.  The app is functioning and whatnot, but I need some help with technical configuration (specifically, DNS) that I don’t have access to, more help with editorial content, and help spreading the word.

  • CNAME DNS Record for pointed to
  • Help reaching out to local vets, shelters, etc!
  • Moderators! Help monitor reports and update the site when animals/humans are reunited.
  • Copywriters
  • Help setting up tracking / GA (using same account seems like a good idea)
  • Help from anyone comfy with Rails and/or deployment ops
  • An SSL Cert would be nice, too!
  • A sexier front-end?
  • Potential promotional channels
  • Existing channels for
  • Lynda Hopkins (via FB or direct)
  • Promo at the event at the grange
  • Vet clinics
  • Shelters and evacuation areas
  • Shelter list on :)
  • Zazu’s restaurant (they had like 30 dogs there)
