Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is a volunteer powered animal rescue located in the Washington D.C. metro area. Since 2009, they have rescued over 14,000 animals and placed them in loving homes. Lucky Dog had tried multiple off-the-shelf and volunteer created solutions to track all of their animals, medical records, volunteers, foster homes, adoptions and donations. No system provided the integration between volunteer management and animal management needed for this volunteer based organization.
Creative Liquid worked closely with our client Lucky Dog Animal Rescue, to design the Rescue Operations and Vital Electronic Records (ROVER) database. The system was designed to allow for tracking of Animals, Volunteers, Donors, Adopters and Animal Medical records. This system is web enabled and accessible to key staff anywhere there is an internet connection.
ROVER is a relational database with interconnected records which tracks animals from rescue, through to adoption. Our team developed the architecture in collaboration with the Lucky Dog Staff, then translated that into an interactive database, with reporting specific to the needs of the organization.
As a 'Mobile first' platform, ROVER is accessible to staff in the office or on location at adoption events, which provides flexibility required for this energetic organization and their large based of volunteers.
The ROVER system has proven to be invaluable in the day to day operations for Lucky Dog Animal Rescue, allowing all of the staff and volunteers to have a central portal of information for all key operations tasks.
