Welcome to Treehouse!

The syntax for Handlebars links in Ember.js is

{{#link-to 'your route name'}}Some Text You Want As A Link{{/link-to}}

For the challenge you would want the link to be between HTML paragraph tags.

I hope that at least point you in the right direction.

Your answer didn't mention whether the 'a href' was need or not, but I managed to pass with:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>Animal Shelter</title>
</head>
<body>
  <script src="js/libs/jquery-1.10.2.js"></script>
  <script src="js/libs/handlebars-v1.3.0.js"></script>
  <script src="js/libs/ember-1.8.1.js"></script>
  <script src="js/app.js"></script>

  <script type="text/x-handlebars">
    <p>{{#link-to 'puppies'}}puppies{{/link-to}}</p>
  </script>

</body>
</html>

Note: Some of the other ember.js forum threads also list an id for the script type="text/x-handlebars" line, like:

<script type="text/x-handlebars" id="puppies">

..but this is not necessary to pass this particular challenge.
