I am dedicated to volunteering my time photographing adoptable dogs on a regular basis at The Protective Animal Welfare Society (KC PAWS) in addition to photographing various pet friendly events to benefit local rescues and shelters. I am partnered with Kyndra Jade of Liks, LLC, who donates bowtie and flower collar accessories that give adoptable pets a touch of class to help them stand out even more. In 2011, I co-hosted adoption events at Steve Tolbert Suzuki in Olathe Kansas where many local Kansas City rescues and pet vendors united to help bring exposure to homeless animals. As many as 50 animals have been adopted in one day at these events. Click here to see how you can help your animal rescue community and also find a list of Kansas City area rescues and shelters.

“Jennifer has been a blessing for our organization. The pictures she takes of our adoptable dogs truly capture their personalities & their hearts. Our adoptions have increased tremendously since she began taking our photographs. She truly has a gift that captures the dogs essence and allows the potential adopters to connect with the dogs in our program.” – Sandi Outlaw, KC PAWS (Protective Animal Welfare Society)
“Jennifer is the most dedicated photo journalist I have EVER come across. Her pictures are amazing & her love for animals shows. She photographs shelter animals that are up for adoption & is currently running at about an 85% adoption rate. If an animal is lost, she does everything she can to see that it gets recovered.” – Jennifer Rogers, Pawz at Play
“Thanks so much for being a great advocate for all rescue dogs in the area. You will never know the FULL IMPACT your photos have on getting these loving and deserving poor kids adopted. They thank you and so do I!” – Sherrie Giddens, The Animal Rescue Alliance.
I am also a member of HeARTs Speak, an organization that connects animal artists to animal rescues to improve adoptability and reduce the number of animals euthanized each year.
