Hello,

I have been building website for about 10 years now. I know PHP, HTML, some Java. I'm ok loading and creating databases for like phpbb and shopping carts. But I need help on this.

I belong to several animal rescues and I am trying to help more. I want to build a website kinda like petfinder.com only I am calling in Connecticut Lost and Pound. Problem is I don't know where to start. I have never build a site like this before. I would like to learn. And I mean start from scratch.

I really want this to be a nice website where people log on with their own accounts, upload photos of animals that need homes, adoption fees, what kind of home they need, good with other animals, etc. I hope to get people to advertise on it to help pay for it, but I know that won't happen for years.

If you can help, please e-mail me or respond to me here.

I am also looking to build a site called Rate My Vet. I own the domain, I just don't have anything on it. Kinda like Rate My Professor website. I feel as though people should know more about the vets out there since our pets are like our children.

Thank you in advance for your help.
