Giving Back

My passion for animals extends far beyond photography.  I believe our pets bring a wonderful joy and peace into our lives and all deserve loving homes.  I bring that joy to people through  therapy dog work and I directly support Animal Rescue Organizations through volunteer photography, outreach and financial support.

I do regular Therapy Dog Work under the Direction of Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation – ARF (Pet Hug Pack) and the East Bay Humane Society (PALS – Pets and Love Shared) and am an outreach representative at their events attracting attention and people to learn more about what they do and how to adopt.  My dog Julie and I regularly visit with kids at a therapeutic nursery school in Oakland and with patients needing a furry hug in the Hospice of the East Bay and John Muir Hospital. 

I have a close relationship with the Contra Costa Humane Society, NorCal Poodle Rescue, Umbrella of Hope and ARF where I volunteer my photographic talents capturing the true personalities of foster dogs and cats to help them attract their forever homes. Here are some recent images!  Don’t you just find them irresistible?  

Contributing to silent auctions for select rescue groups and photographing pet events that support rescues are other fun examples of “giving back.” Sessions were recently donated to the Conta Costa Humane Society and the Golden State German Shepherd Rescue Organization.  

Follow my Facebook Page or blog here on this site to learn about upcoming events and furry friends ready for adoption and help “share the joy’ that pets bring to our lives.

I am pleased to be a member of HeARTs Speak, an organization committed to uniting the efforts of animal artists and animal rescue organizations. Professional photographs greatly improve adoption rates!
