It is so sad the prejudices that people have. Not only can we unjustly despise other nationalities and races, but these inner biases can also play out against certain dog breeds. There are some dogs that are a bit harder to get adopted simply because of their breed. That is where the dog rescue photography comes in!“India” was a 5 month old puppy that was picked up by an Animal Control Officer on July 16, 2018. She was cute…! She was playful…! She was just a puppy…! So what would it... continue reading

“Jack” was a 4-month-old Beagle and Terrier mixed puppy that was surrendered to the animal shelter by his owner on June 28, 2018. They had surrendered two of his littermates earlier in the summer, but thought they’d keep him. Well, when it “just wasn’t working out”, the shelter had to find a home for “Jack” too. No problem. A super-cute pup like “Jack” just might find a better life elsewhere anyway!Besides being irresistibly cute, he was one-hundred-percent “I wanna play with... continue reading
“Reggie” and I had to get out early this morning! I love the beautiful warm days, but summertime poses a challenge to the animal shelter photography. Summer means longer daylight hours. This computes out to higher animal intake and fewer shady hours to photograph them.Springtime triggers most animals to come in season and begin breeding. That means a bunch more animals to photograph than we experience in the winter. We call it "kitten and puppy season". This, coupled with the longer... continue reading
It is that time of year and love is in the air! A gaggle of boy dogs were hanging around the household of an “in-season” female pup. (Hey folks, get your dogs spayed and neutered and this won’t happen!). When the animal control officer showed up, “Grady” was the only one to stick around and unfortunately ended up in doggy jail for stalking! Grady probably wasn’t too well socialized outside of his owner’s home, but was a tender boy at heart. After getting him out of his kennel,... continue reading
“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
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
“Malcolm” was a happy young mixed breed pup that was brought to the Walton County Animal Control shelter in Georgia on May 8, 2018. The people that brought him in said he had been sick and vomiting blood. The wonderful shelter staff gave him dewormer and a vaccine as soon as he came in. Thankfully he never showed any signs of illness! On May 14 he hit the adoption floor and was ready for photos! When it came time for his photo session, Malcolm was obviously distracted by the activity up by the... continue reading
“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
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
“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
