SmallPond Revamps Humane Society Web Site

The Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe has revamped its Web site, featuring a new design, a content management system and expanded features.

Through the Web site,, visitors can view adoptable animals, become familiar with the adoption process, learn about the organization’s programs, find out how to get involved and read success stories.

Designed with an eye toward budget, the Web site’s content management system, developed by Truckee’s SmallPond Studio, provides a simple interface, so HSTT staff can make changes to the site without any coding knowledge.

“Since we’re a nonprofit with a limited marketing budget, this new Web site is perfect for us,” said Stephanie Hiemstra, executive director of the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe. “It’s really easy for us to make our own updates, and we don’t have to pay someone every time we want to add a new animal or remove an adopted animal.”

The Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe is dedicated to saving and improving the lives of pets through adoptions, community spay/neuter services and humane education programs. To meet adoptable dogs and cats, go to HSTT’s Adoption Day, every Saturday from noon to 2 p.m. at the Town of Truckee Animal Kennel, or call (530) 581-3199 to schedule an appointment. To learn more about HSTT, call (530) 587-5948 or visit
