Being in the business of pet photography, there are multiple opportunities to give back to help animals in need. Shelters, humane societies and rescues are always in need of help. I am privileged with the opportunity to work with a few local rescues in the Twin Falls area. I photograph dogs in foster care. This is the perfect fit for me and I sincerely believe it makes a difference when potential adopters are looking for new additions to their family. It thrills me when just days after the portraits are published they get adopted. I love happy endings! The sweetheart pictured in this blog post is still awaiting her forever home but I have a feeling it won't take long till she's in a permanent family forever!
If you are looking for ways to give to animals in foster care and shelters, there are many other ways to plug in:
Usually shelters and rescues will have some sort of on-line presence that has a wish list and a button to "donate now". Nothing is too small or unappreciated. Even simply re-posting images of lost and found pets on your social media pages can be a recipe for instant hero!
Your kindness may seem not that important to you, but could mean the world to another... and it feels good!
