Abstract/Artist Statement

The goal of this project is to design a pet-care facility management software for Arrowpoint Kennels. Arrowpoint is an animal boarding faculty in Woodland, CA. In addition to overnight stays, the Kennel offers pet owners additional care options including pet baths and walks. Currently information about each client’s pet is recorded and kept in folders, with reservations for Kennel services noted on a weekly paper calendar. The owners currently use no computers in the management of their business. The Kennel would like to upgrade to an electronic records system. There are existing kennel software programs, which the owners have reviewed. Those available are expensive and have features that are not wanted, such as business advertising functions.For the past two years, I worked at the Kennel during some weekends, school vacation times and summers. Therefore, I am familiar with the type of information that the Kennel owners require and record for each client, and their approach to tracking animal assignments to runs and cages. In addition, I talked with the owners about the level of software and hardware complexity they could manage and afford.The computer application I designed is a database software system using html, php, javascript for the interface and mysql to interact with the database. Available functions include: entering new client records; searching client records; calculating receipts; listing daily work tasks; employee clock in and out; generating lists of daily medications by animal; and listing dog runs with assigned dog.
