When an animal is brought in to an animal shelter, a picture is taken of him/her and an info card is made for that animal. That picture goes on the shelter’s website as well as the outside of the kennel when it lives. However, because the picture is taken when the animal enters the shelter, the animal pictured on the shelter’s website may be less than ideal. The animal may be dirty, scared, and/or have matted fur from neglect. Needless to say, the image that is posted online may not be the best representation of the dog’s normal state. I’ve teamed up with other wonderful photographer volunteers to visit the West Valley Animal Shelter and re-photograph animals so they have a better chance at getting adopted. Being able to take the animal outside and let him/her run around for a while and then photograph him/her allows the animal the opportunity to have a picture that is more reflective of his/her personality. Priority updates are given to the older animals who have been in the shelter for a while in hopes that the updated picture will help them get a new forever home. For more animals in need of a home, please check out the West Valley Animal Shelter website: here. These pictures also go to Shelter Me. Interested in helping?

Sydney is the first dog I met at the shelter. She was super friendly from the very beginning and liked to play. She enjoyed attention, getting pet, and had a soft coat. Don’t be fooled by her age, she was still pretty spunky and oh so adorable!

Comet did a little running around, but she seemed like she was far more interested in being a big lapdog! She seems like the perfect addition for someone who wants a dog that can be playful, but who wouldn’t mind a big, soft, cuddle-dog!

Splash was so ready to chase after the toy ball when we took her out. She was curious and very sweet! She likes people and was happy to be the center of attention.
