We Work Like Dogs To Make Clients Happy!
We feel so lucky to have found Jill and her team at 2 Dogs Design! We are a small nonprofit and desperately needed some expertise to guide us in a long-overdue website refresh. From our first conversation Jill interpreted exactly what we were looking for – and went above and beyond to recommend features and layouts that we didn’t realize we needed. Her sense of humour, passion and keen eye for detail made the refresh fun (it’s true!) and easy. Long after the website has launched Jill is still available to us at anytime for extra support when we need it. We would recommend Jill and 2 Dogs Design wholeheartedly for any non-profit taking on the daunting task of redoing their website.

I am happy to recommend Jill Caren and her 2 Dogs Design team for their great work in developing a top-notch website for our nonprofit organization. Jill understands the nonprofit world as she volunteers for various organizations so she knows that resources are limited.

- Your website is critical to gaining new supporters – increasing donations and getting the word out about your mission. If you do not take the time to find the perfect partner, these things will be hard to accomplish!
