I normally don’t go for the your-favorite-cause-here months but this time I’llÂ make an exception. The American Humane Association annually designates October as Adopt-a-Dog Month to promote pet adoption from shelters and rescues. As a guardian of two rescued pets I personally think every month should be this way but I’m happy to get the word out any way I can.
I make my living as a professional pet photographer and work with all sorts of animals but it’s always the shelter and rescue dogs and cats that steal my heart the most. To see adopted petsÂ happy and living with families that love them — especially afterÂ the tough haul they’ve often been through — is really touching.
To celebrate the month I’ve put together a set of my favorite dog-rescue photos from 2014Â so far.Â Hope this helps inspire folks out there who are on the fence to adopt and make a home for a pet in need. Your lives will be the better for it!
