I have to admit that it has been WAY too long since I volunteered last - like around 2 years. At the time, I was just starting out my pet photography business and I had plenty of extra time on my hands. Well, as things grew, that spare time became smaller and smaller and, as my schedule tightened, I had to unfortunately let the volunteering go. Fast forward to now, I'm busier than ever but I knew I needed to get some of my priorities in line. Photographing adoptable dogs has always been something extremely important to me. A good picture goes such a long way in the chances that these pups will get adopted. Hopefully a nice image will catch someone's eye while browsing Facebook or the internet. For example, take a look at the picture from my Sadie's Petfinder listing HERE. If I didn't see her at an adoption event first, I could have easily overlooked her dark and scary picture and I wouldn't have my heart dog.

Anyway, I am so glad to now be volunteering with the Humane Society of Charlotte. They are an awesome group of individuals and I can't wait to help more and more of their dogs get adopted. I hope to make it over there 3 or 4 times a month. Until then, here are some of their wonderful pups that have been there the longest...

Shakira had such an adorable head tilt that I had to include 2 pics...

If any of these pups catch your eye, please contact the Humane Society of Charlotte for more information!
