Furry Faces

I made it to the shelter earlier this week after work. It was hot and they were short handed, so I crawled in the pens and took a few photos of pups up for adoption. I won’t post them all, but I’d like to share a few of my favorite photos. You can see all the photos of available animals on the Dublin Laurens County Humane Society Facebook page.

Black Cats

One of the most photogenic creatures on earth is a cat. Of course I don’t have much opportunity to photograph lions and tigers, but the common house cat is just as beautiful. Seriously.

I was at the Humane Society adoption event this Saturday taking the available animals photos and they had brought in a new black cat. I was completely enamoured by this cat. When you think of a “Halloween Cat” this is the cat you picture. Her eyes are fantastic. I could not leave her crate, I kept shooting until I could get the perfect shot of those EYES!

There was little to no post processing done with this photo. The 24-70 is just that sharp. Oh how I love it!

I just love those eyes.

Animals for Adoption at Dublin Laurens Humane Society

I haven’t done shelter photography since starting at the VA, so this is going to be a challenge for me, but I am glad to be back. It’s for a good cause and a great excuse to break out the 6D and do what I love. Plus, who can possibly complain about playing with puppies and kittens all Saturday? Not this girl.

Here are some photos I took this weekend for the Dublin Laurens Humane Society at their weekly Saturday adoption event. The kitty cats are available at Petsense by the mall through the Humane Society and the doggies are at their facility in Dublin.

THIS LIST IS NOT ALL INCLUSIVE. These are only the animals that were at the adoption event on Saturday that did not get adopted. Sadly, there are MANY more dogs, cats, kittens, and puppies available for adoption that are at the shelter. I haven’t taken all of the photos yet, but there are many more to choose from.

New Spirit 4 Aussie Calendar Submissions

Every year, the rescue we adopted Thor and Duncan from, New Spirit 4 Aussie, publishes a calendar for national fundraising.  Last year, the organization requested adopters to submit photos of our rescued Aussies to go in the calendar for 2013. Photos are submitted along with a donation and then members vote to select a cover photo, plus all the months. All photos submitted are included in the calendar somewhere, so everyone’s dog gets a spot. We were super excited when Thor was selected as “Mr. February” this year’s calendar and have been looking forward to participating again. (Of course I was excited, it is photography and for a great cause!) Also, just in the nick of time I was thrilled to find out that they are accepting rescued Aussies from OTHER organizations too, so that means Mr. Buckley can be included since he was adopted from Carolina Hearts Aussie Rescue (CHAR). The deadline for the upcoming 2014 calendar has finally come, and it took me days to decide which pictures to submit. In true Southern fashion, I don’t get in much of a hurry about anything, and naturally waited until the last minute. Finally, my decision has been made and I wanted to share our submissions and encourage you to donate to a rescue! The calendars come out in time for 2014 and they make great gifts for Aussie dog lovers!

The Right Way: Helping a Turtle Cross the Road

Last week, I was on my way to a hair appointment 30 miles away. While driving down the road, I noticed a little turtle in the middle of the highway. I looked at the time, and I was pushing it, but I decided I must turn around and try to help the little guy (or girl) get across. I remembered someone posting a link on Facebook a while back to tips for helping a turtle cross the road, and I thought, well that was really helpful. Believe it or not, it’s not as simple as picking up Mr. Turtle and setting him on one side of the road… So, I decided to put together a little graphic to share with everyone to teach people the “proper” way to help a turtle cross the road.
