Animal rescue has always been a cause that is near and dear to my heart and since I don’t have enough money and room to save them all, it is both a personal and professional mission of mine to partner closely with local rescues and shelters as often as I can, as I know my pictures can play an important role in helping a pet find their forever home.
I am blessed to be able to partner with the amazing individuals who work tirelessly, day in and day out, (most often unpaid and out of the goodness of their hearts) to help save a pet from of a life of homelessness, abuse and neglect. And not to mention all the wonderfully sweet and affectionate dogs that I have met that only want to be loved by their own special person. I really can’t think of a better way to give back.
I have also had the amazing opportunity to become a Aspiring Member of HeARTs Speak, which is “is a global network of animal photographers, artists, authors, graphic designers, and advocates who believe in the power of collaboration. We are a partner-based organization committed to making a positive and lasting impact with our members, other organizations and the greater community. We provide our partners access to images, stories, and services that help them further their cause. Together and united in our efforts, we are ambassadors of change.”
It is very empowering to become one of many who all have the same goal and that is to help homeless pets, one at a time, find their forever homes.
I currently work with 2 rescue organizations, Born Again Pit Bull Rescue and Sound Equine Options. In an effort to say “thank you” to those who chose to rescue and save a life, I give a 25% discount on a session fee to anyone who adopts from either 2 of these organizations.
I love to also donate my services to fundraising/charity events in the pet communities such as fundraising walks and silent auctions. Please don’t hesitate to email me at [email protected] if you have an event you need help with.
