Google search weirdness

Someone just alerted us to a problem with our non-profit's website. If you get there by entering "city critters" or "city critters nyc" as the search terms, nearly the first thing that comes up is info for a Petsmart location, where we do some of our adoptions. The bigger problem is that if you click any of the CCI links that Google displays, none of the site images load because Google is giving the address as https rather than http.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Update the site to enable HTTPS for every page and resource?

There are free options for https now. Many web hosts will make it easy to connect with one of those services, but you can do it on your own if the host doesn't offer it directly.

But, if you don't want to bother with https, go to your host and set up a redirect so all https traffic gets sent to http.

I haven't had a chance to fix anything: my work schedule is nuts right now. If you enter "citycritters" without a space, you get there without the https.

However, the group has found a volunteer who allegedly actually knows something about web development (unlike yours truly), so I am hopeful that I can finally hand this over. Mind you, I did that in 2014, handed it off to a volunteer who only knew how to use Dreamweaver, no coding, and was shocked to see about 18 months later that the site hadn't been updated in over a year. So fingers crossed. It needs to be completely rebuilt to be responsive, and no one in our group ever wants to deal with it: it's like pulling teeth, usually, to get text and clear requests from people. And I haven't had time to learn what I would need to in order to really modernize it.

On the other hand, we do find quite a few homes for kitties in need.
