Tahe Truckee Business Briefs

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, http://www.hstt.org, 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 581-3199 to schedule an appointment. To learn more about HSTT, call 587-5948 or visit http://www.hstt.org.

As a ski resort, the connection to the environment is clear. As skiers and snowboarders, and as an industry, we will be adversely affected if the world’s population is unable to quickly reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. Sugar Bowl intends to act responsibility to do it’s part to minimize the consequences of global climate change and keep winter cool.

Please join Sugar Bowl on Saturday, Jan. 31 for the first Sugar Bowl Environmental Awareness Day. Events and activities throughout the day will include a collaborative art project, sustainable food and beverage options and an exciting addition to our terrain park. The day will culminate with a group photo at 3:50 p.m. at the base of the Judah Lift, to show support for reducing the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to 350 parts per million.
