Rescue is near and dear to me. Anyone who knows me, knows that helping homeless animals is an integral part of my personality. I have been a foster home for 10+ years for local and not so local rescues. For overnight visits to year long stays. I am a transport driver, ensuring animals make it from high kill shelters to no/low kill rescues. I donate my time and my extra (however little it may be) resources to helping these animals. I don't say all this to toot my own horn, I say this because it is an integral part of my business model. I will never be rich as a photographer, because my goal is to help as many animals as I can using whatever platform I can. The other side of my business, is to ensure that EVERY pet owner can have a professional photo of their pet in their home.

One of the the ways I help local rescues is to offer my photography services free of charge for animals up for adoption, either in a shelter or in a foster home. I have seen it time after time...a great photo helps get an animal adopted. A potential adopter, is drawn to the eyes and the personality of the pet they are seeing first...long before they visit it.

Today's shoot was done at Pet Smart in North Bay. These four cats are available through Pet Save. Pet Save is a No Kill shelter/foster based rescue in Sudbury. They offer countless homeless pets a second leash on life. Education is a huge part of their program. Even if you are not looking for a cat (or dog) at this time, please consider donating or at the very least checking out this rescue.

Move your cursor over the picture to learn a little about each of these beauties up for adoption!

PollyPolly is an 8 week old tuxedo kitten. She loves to play and snuggle. TrufflesTruffles is an absolute sweet heart. Approximately 8 months old, he has lost part of his ear to frostbite. Was fostered with puppies!

LolaThis 1.5 year old beauty of a girl is an absolute gem. She is more of a curl up on your lap for scratches then a run around and play kind of girl. CedricThis 1 year old handsome man is ridiculously playful....he will chase toys and fly around the house all day long!

Hi Dee,
Thank you for your kind words! Everyone except Polly was a stray! Polly was being cared for with a sibling but the lady that her was unable to care for two!

Absolutely STUNNING photography of STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL CATS & KITTENS!! I understand that the 8 wk old female Tuxedo Kitten POLLY is named for her polydactyl front paws (extra digits) which makes her extra special in many ways!! Will post & tweet to help circulate pics but we need more back stories on these sweet souls!
