Several weeks ago, I had the extreme pleasure to take my trusty camera with me to Pittsburgh's Animal Rescue League. This particular has a special place in my heart because that's where I adopted my Mal pup in 2012.
A good friend of mine, who is as dog-crazy as me, volunteers at the Animal Rescue League every Wednesday. I had my camera with me at work on this particular Wednesday, so after I clocked out, I marched on over to the shelter. I wanted to take pictures of shelter dogs who needed a picture for their Petfinder profile. People are more likely to inquire about a pet if they have a nice, professionally-done photograph, than one depicting them as scared and sad (read more).
In a period of one hour, I was able to take pictures of five dogs with the assistance of my friend and another Animal Rescue League volunteer.
I am happy to say that all the dogs you see here have since been adopted. I don't know if my photos played a part. If they did, then that's awesome. All that matters, though, is that they all have found their furever homes.
