Back in February we celebrated Love Your Pet Day. Those of us who are pet owners probably celebrate loving our pets every single day. Sadly, not all animals are so fortunate. Shelters are overrun with animals waiting to find love in a forever home.
The caliber of an animal's photo that is distributed by the shelter or rescue agency often determines how much adoption interest there is in that animal. As photographer's, we can offer our services to our local animal shelter or a rescue group. We never know how many lives our photos could help to save. Consider visiting a shelter today and taking a few pictures.
If a shelter visit is not possible, take a photo of a friend's pet and give it to them as a gift. Or, consider offering to photograph a stranger and their pet that you encounter on a walk.
