Photographing dogs up for adoption has been dear to my heart for years. My formula for achieving the best shots in a rescue environment consists of placing a dog in the best natural light against a colorful background, adding a pretty collar accessory (compliments of Liks LLC) and making the weirdest noises you will ever hear. Sandi Outlaw, owner of KC PAWS, became a good friend and we formed a loyal partnership over the years. If she didn’t wrangle the energetic ones and position the timid ones, I would not be able to capture them nearly as well, if at all. Last night, between the two of us, we were drenched in sweat, utterly exhausted and had both downed a large Sonic slush over the course of the night. Why do we put ourselves through this? Because we are the voice for the voiceless. Without people in rescue, the future of homeless animals would be gravely dim. I do experience burnout from the countless stories of heartbreak, abuse and neglect, but the desire deep in my heart to save an animal will never die. I am constantly reminded that I am making a difference, even if it’s a small one.
The Protective Animal Welfare Society (KC PAWS) was formed in 2007 with the determination of working with animals in need. They specialize in working with animals who are the victims of abuse. They work in connection with local City and State agency’s to help investigate and report cases of cruelty and neglect as well as providing education and resources to the community on how to properly care for their animals. All dogs adopted from KC PAWS come with 6 months of free day care at A Dog’s Fun Playce (a $2,700 value). All dogs adopted will be current on their vaccinations and spayed or neutered prior to their release.
