Shelter Dogs June 23 2012
When needed, I try to help out at the local animal shelter (Vancouver Animal Control) by taking photos of their dogs available for adoption. I believe the quality of the photos makes a difference in the dogs adoption so I’m happy to help out when I can. It helps me and helps the dogs. You can see the animals they have available at PetFinder.com (not just dogs but rabbits, lizards, and at times even more strange things). You can also see previous shelter dogs I photographed here.
There were a few new faces on my most recent visit, some great dogs. I started off with a cute beagle, very friendly and loves to play. When he runs his ears flap around like he is trying to fly :)
Next up was this fluffy little Maltese who constantly tried to climb into my lap.
Then I met this young boxer. He just vibrates with excitement when you play with him. Awesome dog.
This young girl took some work, was more interested in the dogs around her than getting photos taken.
A black lab likely won’t last long down there, always popular.
But the tables were turned on the little guy when we put him in with the boxer. Oh crap, I’m out of here!
Make a move sucker…
Oh crap, I guess that’s the move.
And some of the bunnies currently available.
And finally, when I got home I decided to get a few shots of my own dogs. Jammie will always sit for the camera, a good and obedient dog.
Cedric is an old and grumpy guy, wanted no part of it.
