My name is Erin and I have had the pleasure of assisting Pawsitive Shelter Photography brighten the lives of some really wonderful animals. Each and every time we go to OCAS there is always at least one animal that tugs at my heart, but until a few Sundays ago, I would have never thought a pair of big brown eyes and a damp nose could get me to add another furry kid to my family - I was wrong and my family and I are thrilled about it.
Rigby, as he’s known now, stood out among his kennel mates as attentive and relaxed when I first met him and by the time I walked him over for his turn in front of the camera, I was smitten. Once I convinced my husband that he would also fall in love with this sweet boy, we put in our application and had the long wait (well, it felt long) for him to be neutered, so that he could come to his forever home. In the meantime, we stopped by every day to spend a little time with him and get to know more of his personality. Even with the stress of his situation, Rigby maintained that same wonderful demeanor that initially attracted me to him.
Finally, the big day came and we were able to bring our new baby home after his surgery. Once we got him settled into his room, he wanted nothing more than to cuddle up with us and to be loved. Since that day, he has proven to be an exceptionally wonderful and sweet addition to our family. Rigby has met and exceeded all of my expectations and I can’t imagine why he was picked up as an underfed stray, but I know that I am lucky to have had the chance to bring this sweet boy into our family. I can only hope that Pawsitive Shelter Photography helps others find the joyful connection with a special pet that my family and I have been able to have with Rigby.
