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.
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, has taken the Pawsitive Shelter Photography mission to the Granada SPCA, a no kill shelter on the island, and has begun producing more of her usual high quality imagery of available homeless pets.
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.
