Local software consulting firm, Zennify, has chosen the Meridian Canine Rescue as its first “Zenn for Good” partner.

Zennify saw the importance of the rescue’s work and saw an opportunity to help them use technology to boost their impact, according to a press release.

The firm helped the canine rescue launch a digital platform to organize its more than 1,200 contact and account records, and allow volunteers to track their hours online.

“Meridian Canine Rescue has hundreds of donors and close to 85 active volunteers,” Haley Flom, a Salesforce consultant at Zennify, said in the release. “Just a few months ago, they were keeping track of everyone using a paper-based system.”

Meridian Canine Rescue’s new customer relationship management platform launched July 19.

“We were thrilled when Zennify reached out to us and said they believed they could help us build stronger relationships with our donors and volunteers,” Jessica Ewing, executive director at Meridian Canine Rescue, said in the release. “Without our loving volunteers and wonderful donors, we would be unable to serve the dogs in our program. They play a critical role in helping our dogs get ready for adoption and allow us to operate as a no-kill shelter. It has been an incredible opportunity to work with Zennify and we know their hard work will allow us to help even more dogs in need.”

Zennify recently launched the Zenn for Good program to empower individuals to give back both professionally and personally. The company is investing resources in nonprofit and community innovation initiatives, through Salesforce technology.

“Zennify is a company filled with animal lovers,” senior engagement manager Kirsten Zollinger stated, “so it seemed fitting to choose Meridian Canine Rescue as our first Zenn for Good partner.”
