My week 8 project was to create an interactive map of all of the humane societies in Oregon. It took a long time to find all of them, find out what kind of pets they shelter, and other information such as their mission statement and if they have a thrift shop associated with them. Google only showed some of the smaller shelters if I was zoomed in all the way, so it took some hunting to find all of them. This project took even longer because I ended up looking at all of the poor, helpless animals that need homes at each shelter.
I found that there are far more pets in need than I ever thought. I’ve had statistics thrown at me all term while working on these projects of how many animals are helped, but those are just numbers until you actually see the faces of all the animals who are in shelters.
Each of my markers has the website attached so take a look at all the animals and start helping them!
This should lead you to my map… enjoy!
