Pet Photographer Helps Shelter Rescue Dogs Get Adopted

I had a Pet Photo Day at a local Pet Supplies “Plus” store  recently and there was a dog and cat rescue group celebrating the opening of their new facility within the store. The store owner had generously donated a large portion of his property to construct an area to house kittens and cats that have been rescued from the street and from other shelters. The name of the rescue group is Forgotten Friends of Long Island. and they have a Facebook page here: Forgotten Friends on Facebook

They had also brought with them, several rescued dogs that live in foster homes while waiting to be adopted. They don’t have room to house the dogs, so some volunteers with very big hearts become foster “parents” to these animals that would have otherwise been euthanized.
I asked the  Coordinator of their Foster/Rescue Dog Program, if I could donate some of my time and take pictures of the foster dogs which could then be used on their web site. I hadn’t seen their web site or the pictures of the dogs on it, but I have seen other rescue sites and I know what the pictures usually look like. It is a known fact that the better the picture, the better the chances are that a dog will get adopted. Even without having seen the pictures they were using on their web site,I was sure that I could improve upon them, even with the limited set up I had to work with at the time.

Take a look at the pictures, maybe you would like to adopt one or perhaps you know someone who might like to. Please get in touch with Forgotten Friends of Long Island.

If you are a shelter or rescue organization in Connecticut, New York City or on Long Island, I am available to do the same thing for your organiztion.

Here are the “before” and “after” pictures:
The top row photos were taken by the rescue group’s volunteers. The rest are photos of the same dogs, taken by me.
