This past weekend, my husband and I volunteered at a Blessing of the Animals event. We make a pretty good team—I take the photos, and he edits and prints them on the spot. All the proceeds go to Glenmoore Small Animal Rescue (GSAR), and this year’s event—which also included a raffle and silent auction—was very successful.
I think this is the fourth year that we’ve created portraits at the event, but throughout the year I also photograph animals that are waiting for homes so they can be featured on Petfinder.com. I love being able to help out in this way. It’s great to meet the various dogs and cats (and guinea pigs, hamsters, and rabbits!) and know that I’m playing a small part in helping them finding happy homes.
We adopted Maggie from GSAR two years ago, and she’s really become part of our family. She brings us joy and laughter every day!
If you’re thinking of getting a pet, please consider rescue. I know GSAR would be happy to help you find just the right new member of your family!
