Dog Rescue Photography: Goofy Gage!

​“Gage” was a friendly boy that was picked up by a Walton County Animal Control officer on June 27, 2018. Unfortunately he had no tag or microchip to find his way home and was brought to the animal shelter.“Gage” had a wonderful, happy personality; a cute kind of goofiness. Goofy “Gage” kept leaning up against my legs and nudging his nose under my hand looking for some petting! It was that goofy look with his tongue sticking out that got him noticed and adopted within just a few days!... continue reading

Pet Adoption Photography: Bocephus the Coonhound

“Bocephus” was a handsome hound dog picked up stray by a Walton County Animal Control officer on May 8, 2018. He had a hunter orange collar and dragging a 5 foot black leash, so he had to have belonged to somebody. Not sure if he was a lost hunting dog, or got away from somebody’s house. As is my luck when I really like a dog, he tested heartworm positive. But thankfully Anne, Lane and Audrey had already posted pledges for his rescue before his hold even expired. And not long after posting his... continue reading

Pet Rescue Photography: Bigsby

Bigsby the Boxer DogIt is strange how it seems that dog breed impounds run in spurts. “Bigsby” is the fifth Boxer to come through the Walton County Animal Control shelter in Monroe, Georgia in the last few weeks! “Bigsby” was picked up stray by an animal control officer on May 14, 2018. The officer had no trouble “taking him in” when he ran right up to the truck looking to go for a ride! In the shelter, he was a bit of a barky and excited boy, but it must have all been to get outside.... continue reading

Pet Adoption Photography: "Lace" the kitten

“Kitten season” began in April, just as it does every year. Last month alone, 129 cats were brought into the Walton County Animal Control shelter in Georgia, USA!Luckily, there was a great run of adoptions at the beginning of May. But with so many litters of kittens coming in, the local cat rescue groups were soon full. That left little ones like “Lace” hoping for an adopter.I brought “Lace” into my makeshift kitty studio for a few shots on Friday afternoon. After... continue reading

Dog Rescue Photography: Bambi

Lost and forgotten?Lost and forgotten? That is how it seemed. Being a more mature dog, Bambi had to have been a part of somebody’s family for at least a few years. So how is it that she sits in the shelter for so long unclaimed? How is it that so many of the dogs go unclaimed by owners? “Bambi” was picked up stray by Walton County Animal Control Officer on April 16, 2018 in Monroe, Georgia. As is all too common, she had no collar, tag or microchip for the officer to find her home. Even after... continue reading

Dog Rescue Photography: Bud the Beagle

​“Bud” the Beagle was picked up by a Walton County Animal Control officer running around and just having a good time! When his initial intake photo was posted on the lost/found website for the animal shelter, the social media volunteer recognized him. Turns out “Bud” was a repeat offender! Just about a month earlier he came through the shelter and was claimed by his owner. The shelter staff left several messages for Bud’s owner. After 8 days without a response, it looked like he wouldn... continue reading

Dog Rescue Photography: Prince

What’s in a name?It can sometimes be tough to come up with names for so many shelter animals. I often get stuck in a rut and tend to over use “Rex”, “Bella”, “Jack” and “Jake”. And there are times I just have a total mental block. This handsome Boxer recently came in to the Walton County Animal Control shelter in Monroe, Georgia with another dog that got the name “Bambi”. Her name was easy… she just looked like a Bambi! But what about the Boxer? I quickly googled the... continue reading

Pet Adoption Photography: Cillie

What are unique face! One bright blue eye set in a half-white, half-black adorable face. “Cillie” was truly a unique looking dog... but also an exposure challenge when it came to photography! “Cillie” had that great, energetic personality typical of most of the pit bulls that come into the Walton County Animal Control shelter in Monroe, Georgia. Playful and wanting to please, she was not short on love towards people. And her jovial, somewhat silly personality earned her name (though with... continue reading

Pet Adoption Photography: Bella

“Bella” was a happy young Husky mix surrendered to the Walton County Animal Control Shelter in Georgia (USA) on April 19, 2018. Sadly, Bella and her original owner were evicted and Bella was given to a friend. After a few weeks, when that friend discovered she couldn’t keep a dog in her apartment, Bella came to the animal shelter looking for a permanent home.Being a young girl, approximately 6 to 8 months, she was the perfect playful pup! She was all smiles and happy-panting wags!... continue reading
