Welcome to the HS&AW Ring Friends Page

Perhaps you were intrigued by the notion of the Humane Society and Animal Welfare Ring but your site isn't about animal welfare or rescue. Perhaps you were directed here from the main HS&AW Ring page. Or perhaps you'd never even heard of the HS&AW ring until you just hit this page. No matter. If you like the idea of linking humane societies and animal welfare organizations the World-Wide-Web over, you have come to the right place. This is the ring for private individuals, businesses and others to join who support the mission of the HS&AW ring but whose site would not be appropriate for that ring. If you have any questions about this ring or the HS&AW ring, contact the Ringmaster for both rings and ask.

Just a word about web rings in general. They are wonderful but they do take some work. The hardest part is placing the HTML fragment and graphics on your site. This is also the most important part. Why? You may ask. It's the most important part because without that info on their site the ring is broken. Unlike the HS&AW Ring, this ring allows for the people who submit their sites to the ring to join without asking the Ringmaster's permission. This means that anyone with any kind of site can join. As a result of that, the members of the HS&AW Ring would like to state that they do not endorse or control the contents of any of the HS&AW Ring Friends sites. If you have a problem with the sites in this ring, please take it up with the site manager or his/her ISP. Thanks for your visit. Consider joining the HS&AW Ring Friends to keep it a nice place.


So, you want to join the HS&AW Ring Friends! All right, here's what you gotta do:

Thanks to the changes that Webring has made, your site will be automatically added to the ring as soon as the Webring computer detects that it's ready!

 Step 1: Fill in the form below as completely and accurately as possible. If you do not have a webpage up yet, please put it up before filling out the form. When ready, submit the form:

Submit site to HS&AW Ring Friends
Site Title:
Site URL:


Please choose a password. (Don't forget it!!)
Keywords: Enter up to 20 keywords to describe your site.
Description: Enter a short description of your site.

Choose one of these graphics to be the "main graphic" for the HS&AW Ring Friends HTML fragment. If you want to play with the size of these, please feel free but the Ringmaster does ask that they look substantially the same so that people who are interested in following the webring can. Save the graphic to your computer and don't forget to upload it to the server where your site will be located. You can re-name the graphics whatever you want.

Need help downloading these graphics?
You will also want one of these graphics if you use the HTML fragment exactly as it appears below.

Now, don't get confused here. Cut and paste the HTML fragment exactly as it appears here into the page where you want the HS&AW Ring Friends information to appear. Don't forget to change the words "YOUR_SITE_ID#_HERE" to the actual number that the Webring computer assigns you (Make sure you get all of them changed).
