This is Tigger! He is a one year old, 51 pound boy. I photographed him just last week at Longmont Humane Society. He is very affectionate and just a great looking, well mannered dog. And, as of today, he is still available for adoption. He should do well with other cats and dogs and kids of any age. Want to see more of our shelter pet photography? Click here! Oh, and that cute bandana was made and donated by Indy & Olly’s.

A couple of weeks ago while taking dog photos at Longmont Humane Society, I was faced with super bright sunlight or a bush that was partially dead. So I looked around for a new background and found that the sidewalk and wall of the building would make a simple and neutral gray background. I like the effect and the dogs really pop out. As an added benefit, it was close to the dog kennels so I was able to take more dog photos than normal in a short period of time. Dog photography can be challenging but mostly a lot of fun and photographing shelter dogs to help them find homes is super rewarding.

In October I was invited by Laurie Kaufman of RE/MAX to join forces with her to do a fundraiser for Longmont Humane Society. She would bring her clients with dogs in to the office where we set up a photography studio and I would photograph them for Halloween. It was a great success! Many people came with their dogs, and even one cat for photos, although none of the animals were thrilled about wearing costumes. I took lots of pet photos and gave out lots of treats and I received lots of tail wags, licks and kisses.

This is a really well written article by Scott Smith of Consumers Advocate, located in Puerto Rico. Click here to read the article.
The article is about Hearts Speak, an organization that I am a member of that connects artists like photographers, videographers, painters, graphic designers, etc. to animal shelters to help get pets adopted, among other great projects.
This kind of organization needs this kind of well deserved praise and exposure. There is a lot to say about but I will say no more…….. just read the article and you will be thoroughly educated on why Hearts Speak exists and why they are making a difference in the animal rescue world.

Here are some new faces and some old faces at Longmont Humane Society. A couple of these dogs were adopted before we even had a chance to post their photos, like Randall here. Most dogs do get adopted quickly, but once in awhile you have dogs like Blanca and Grace who take longer to find their forever homes. It’s not their fault though. It’s usually just because they don’t get along well with other dogs or cats. Otherwise, they are perfectly loving and personable dogs. I’m glad I volunteer at a shelter that gives them all the time in the world to find their perfect match!
