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: Jack

“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

Pet Adoption Photography: Reggie the Black Lab

“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

Dog Rescue Photography: Grady

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

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

Dog Rescue Photography: Malcolm

“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

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
