In 2013 Hamilton Burlington SPCA contacted Banko Media to refine and update their communications materials. As an advocate for animal rights, this no-kill shelter is almost entirely self-funded, relying on the good will of animal lovers and caring citizens to help them fulfill their mission to find forever homes for every resident that comes through their doors.
With the help of our friend John at Wishart, we simplified their logo, created a template for their annual report and then went on to start to build an image library and case studies celebrating their many volunteers, donors and staff.
We then developed a new website that showcased all the animals looking for new homes, integrating Hamilton Burlington SPCA’s social media with the rest of their content and enabling them to customize and manage their site internally using Word Press. We even developed an online donor portal and e-commerce solution.
Nearly six years later we are still working with the HBSPCA to spread the word, telling stories of the animals being rescued and looking for homes, the volunteers and donors that keep the shelters doors open, and the staff working hard to give a voice to animals that cannot speak for themselves.
