Seeing as I love animals so much, it deeply saddens me to see animals who aren’t so fortunate to have been given a loving home and living a fulfilling life. I really admire the people who go to work everyday to fight for the animals, helping, rescuing and rehoming animals in need.
It wasn’t until I moved to Australia that I found out about puppy farms and the horrific trade of breeding novelty dogs purely for profit. Seeing this mis-treatment of dogs, our loyal pets, in Australia of all countries is really unacceptable. Having seen the before and after effects of these dogs I am passionate about supporting the abolishment of puppy farms and helping to raise awareness about this issue.
I think every little bit helps and in providing pet photography I am giving back to the pet community. I provide my time and services in volunteer to these organisations such as Oscars Law, Pets Haven and the Melbourne Pet Ambulance as well as making donations, through the client sessions I provide. I’m a member of HeARTs Speak an online community of artists who are dedicated to using their art to help animals, assisting and educating the community on the importance of animal adoptions. HeARTs Speak mission is to unite the individual efforts of animal artists and animal rescues into collective action for social change.
For all sessions booked for rescue pets I will happily donate $25 of your session fee to the organisation you support. Being able to provide a pet with a loving home and change their life is so rewarding and it makes your relationship with them all the more special. What better reason to capture this through a pet photography session and at the same time show your continual support for the organisations which make this possible.
