Thank you for viewing our shelter photography. In October, 2011, we started taking pet portraits - using whatever resources were at hand - at the Orange County, Florida, Animal Services Pet Rescue and Adoption Center, located at 2769 Conroy Road, Orlando, FL 32839-2162.

Available pets from Orange County can be viewed at http://www.ocnetpets.com and at the Facebook page maintained by the shelter, found at http:/​/​www.​facebook.​com/​orangecountyanimalservices.

In May, 2013 we began working with Osceola County Animal Services, located at 3910 Old Canoe Creek Road, St. Cloud, FL 34769. As they expand their public outreach to place more of their animals in good homes, for the time being their adoptable pets can be viewed here: http:/​/​www.​osceolacountypets.com. Please help us help them by publicizing the excellent work their staff is doing to put the focus on live animal release.

Our volunteer photographers are of all skill levels, from professionals to enthusiasts to point-and-shooters, but all participants have a common desire and passion to pawsitively present shelter animals to the public as viable and desirable pets. As our collective experience grows our methods (hopefully) will attain a consistently higher quality and rate of success.

We hope you will share our pawsitive vision and our inspiration. Pass the word, adopt a pet, make a friend, save a life.

Pawsitive Shelter Photography ("PSP") is a volunteer organization operating in the Orlando, Florida area. Our mission is to use photography to present shelter animals to the public as appropriate and deserving pets and companions. By maximizing adoptions and emphasizing the need for shelters to better market available pets, we hope to reduce abuse and neglect of domestic animals and lower rates of euthanasia.

Our long term goal is to create an economical photographic system and workflow that is easily transferable to rescue groups and shelters with scarce resources; one which can be used by persons of all skill levels to present their charges in the best possible light.

We use a combination of photographic best practices, speed and hard work to show the compelling personalities of
available animals. We endeavor to provide our work product to the shelter at the earliest possible moment so as to give each animal the longest possible time before the adopting public. 

Donations of ideas,
manpower, money, equipment and supplies are welcome and all donations will be used solely to save shelter animals.  You are welcome to use our photos as long as the use is not commercial in nature, you include an attribution to Pawsitive Shelter Photography and include a link back to this website. Also you must keep at least the same quality as the original photos.  We invite bona fide rescues to use our photos to assist in placing the animals we photograph. 

To learn more about us, see this video, produced by the Orlando Sentinel in July, 2012. http:/​/​www.​orlandosentinel.​com/​multimedia/​os-​video-​animal-​shelter-​photographers-​20120726,​0,​5049819.​story

On December 9, 2013 Orlando television station WKMG featured PSP and its social media outreach efforts in its "Making a Difference" segment, which can be viewed here: http:/​/​www.​clickorlando.​com/​social-​media-​helping-​to-​save-​pets/​-​/​1637238/​23408894/​-​/​s6cjyez/​-​/​index.​html

On July 30, 2014 Orlando Weekly awarded Pawsitive Shelter Photography its "Best Do-Gooders Doing Good Award" for 2014, an honor we are truly pleased to have received from a class publication. Thank you.

In August, 2014 we went international. Cynthia Vasquez, one of our original photographic mentors and most passionate and enduring participants, who is now a second year veterinary student in the Caribbean nation of Granada, took the Pawsitive Shelter Photography mission to the Granada SPCA, a no kill shelter on the island, and produced more of her usual high quality imagery of available homeless pets.

Well, I loved the concept you people have adopted in order to help the street dogs and thereby creating an opportunity for them to have a proper shelter. I would love to adopt this method here in my state too.

Great site, great job! I would also be interested in a training seminar!

God bless you guys, what you do is so incredibly beautiful, turning shelter dogs into stunning portraits of adoptable dogs that tug at anybody's heart.

I live in Tallahasse and am very interested in learning how to duplicate the success your group has had. Please let me know if you schedule a training seminar so I can attend -- or, have you thought about doing a webinar? It might be a good fundraiser. Your group produces awesome pictures! I believe you'd have a lot of people who would be interested in classes of some kind.

We just had someone offer to buy us a Photoshop program and I'm thrilled! In the Orlando Sentinel video, it looks like you use a white backdrop made out of something hard. Can you please tell me what that is and how it was made? Would it be possible to observe/help on a Sunday sometime?

Thank you!
