New website launch for Wag & Company
Published: June 2016
A Hexham based charity is looking to build on the special relationship between dogs and people with the launch of a new website.
Wag and Company, became a registered charity in March 2016 and enables volunteers and their dogs to visit older dog lovers in their own homes or in care and medical establishments across the North East of England.
The organisation was founded by local business people and is supported by some key businesses in the North East. Until now, organisations in the North East did not enable volunteers with dogs to visit people in their own homes, only in care or medical establishments. Wag & Company has broken the mould and now reaches older dog lovers who miss the friendship and company of a dog in their own home.
Wag and Company approached Newcastle web design Agency, Urban River, to help produce their new website. “It was very important for us to work with a local company that really understood what we were trying to achieve”, said Charity Director Diane Morton. “Given the age of many of those that would engage with Wag and Company, we really needed to work with a company that could produce a clear and easy to use website that engaged with those who need our services the most”. “We couldn’t be happier with the work the Urban River team have produced”.
“It was a real pleasure to work on this project”, said Carl Buckley, MD of Urban River. “Wag and Company offers a fantastic service to the community and we’re proud to help them reach as many people as possible”.
