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...

Another trip to Vancouver Animal Control to photograph dogs.  Photos from previous visits can be seen here.  As always, you can see the animals available for adoption from this shelter by visiting their PetFinder page or just drop in at the shelter. First up, this young pit bull who is a bit chunky but loves to play. I had to visit the puppies again, they are great dogs and won’t last long.  Previous photos of these little guys are here. A playful and very cute Pomeranian. Call of the wild And a German Shepherd who was more interested in napping in the grass than having her photo taken.  ...

Another set of dogs from Vancouver Animal Control, you can see others here.  As always, you can see the animals available for adoption from this shelter by visiting their PetFinder page or just drop in at the shelter. The three puppies on this page are very cute and friendly, they all tried to crawl into my lap as I was taking photos.  They have the most amazing crystal blue eyes I have ever seen!  But first, this young German Shepherd.  Playful and energetic, loves to play fetch. Now the puppies!   For anyone curious, this was the fist time I shot dogs at the shelter with my Nikon D800. I used the Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8 lens but I think...

Another set of dogs from Vancouver Animal Control, you can see others here.  As always, you can see the animals available for adoption from this shelter by visiting their PetFinder page or just drop in at the shelter. The little husky puppies are still there, and still cute.  The first dog today was Root Beer, a very active but loving young pit bull.   At one point go got a case of the zoomies.   This girl likes to lean on you while getting some attention, I don’t think she knows how big she is.   Coming in for my close up.       A young shih tzu, very playful.   This guy looks grumpy, is missing a...

Another set of dogs from Vancouver Animal Control, you can see others here.  As always, you can see the animals available for adoption from this shelter by visiting their PetFinder page or just drop in at the shelter. My favorite dog of the day, this hyper little puppy Spotz.  He can’t sit still for more than two seconds, so it’s amazing I got any decent photos of him at all.   This one seems a bit sad, like he is waiting for someone to come and adopt him. Coming in for my closeup :)   Monty, he likes to give hugs. Give me a hug.   Finally, the two little husky puppies. One has freckles on her nose.  ...

I took another trip to the Vancouver Animal Control shelter today to take photos of their dogs available for adoption.  Photos from my previous visit can be seen here.  As always, you can see the animals available for adoption from this shelter by visiting their PetFinder page or just drop in at the shelter.   I don’t think this black lab will be there long.   Cute little Boston Terrier, he jumps around like a maniac.   My favorite dog of the day, a blue heeler. He kept trying to climb into my lap.   Hound dog.   They don’t always want to cooperate.   The fuzzy Rottweiler.   Funny dome head,...

Every now and then, I help out at 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.  I haven’t done this too many times, but I hope to continue as 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).  Today I met a few great dogs, and I even had a Jack Russel nut me so I can check that off the bucket list. Very cute but somewhat wild puppy :) “Judge” the...

Last night with Morimoto and Flappy

Our last night with the two foster puppies Morimoto and Flappy.  At one point we had eight, but they were spread out among foster homes quickly.  These two stayed with us for over a month, and were a lot of work but very fun at the same time.  These photos are from our last night...
