We try to help the rescue effort in any way we can.
MOLLY CHANGED MY LIFE
Molly was the first dog in need of a home that I ever photographed (or rather, tried to). I left in tears because she was so love starved that I couldn't get a picture of her...any time I backed up to focus, she ran straight to me, attached herself to my leg & looked up at me while wagging her tail. At that moment I knew I wanted to do more to help these dogs. I choose to run my business in a manner that continually gives back.
You can help, too...everyone can.
Whether you are considering my services or not, please take a moment to visit your local shelter's site. They are likely continually & desperately looking for foster & adoptive parents. Not everyone is able to to fill that need, but there is definitely something you can do to help. Your local shelter probably has a wish list right on their website. If they don't, why not call them and ask them what they need? You can make such a big difference, even by dropping off paper towels.
Need to make sure you excersise? Why not commit to walking a rescue dog regularly? It doesn't cost anything and makes a world of differeence for the dog. The time they spend outside of their crate is so important to their mental and physical health. The more excersies they get, the calmer they are. The calmer they are, the easier it is for someone to envision that dog as a part of their family, which gets them in a loving home faster and opens up space for another dog to be saved. It just makes their shelter experience so much easier.
So, whatever you do, if you love animals, find a way to get in there and do something to help. You'll be glad you did!!
