AIDA Website Evaluation PRT 5460

Chelsey Olsen, AIDA
Animals are a large part of my life. I love to learn more about them every day. This May I will graduate with my bachelor’s in Parks Recreation and Tourism with an emphasis in Commercial Recreation. I hope one day to become a Zoo keeper. There are many ways to learn about animals but my favorite place to search information is on the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) website http://www.aspca.org/ .  For class I chose to use the ASPCA website to evaluate.

Attention: The website has a good contrast of colors, orange and black, that catches ones eye. It also has a picture slide show flashing at the top. The overall set up is organized and easy to follow. Labels and descriptions are large making it easy to read.

Interest: The many topics that the ASPCA cover are interesting and informational. The pictures with each article attract one to click on it.

Desire: There are many different articles that show how one can help all different kinds of animals. There are also topics that help owners treat and teach his or her own pet.

Action: There are many places on the website asking for donations and volunteers

Overall this website is very informative and easy to follow. I visit it about once a week in order to answer my questions and stay up to date on news. Due to the easy layout it is easy for me to follow and find whatever I am looking for.

If ever you are to have questions about animals I encourage you to use this website. It is great and informative on many animals that one sees day to day. Not only does the website have a lot of information on animals but the ASPCA is striving to inform the public about animal cruelty and by visiting this site you can understand why.
