Volunteer Photographer at PAWS in 2017

Volunteer photographer at PAWS in 2017

It has been another great year being a volunteer photographer at Paws of Rutherford County. I started volunteering here shortly after moving to Murfreesboro in November 2015. Ive had the pleasure of meeting so many amazing fur babies and knowing they found great homes. The more I work with PAWS the better it has gotten. If you haven’t been to PAWS in the past year I encourage you to check out all the changes that have happened. They’ve expanded their play yards so dogs can really enjoy more space. They have completely revamped their lobby and have better cages for the cats. The amount of sponsored events this year has helped so many pets get adopted.

I had the pleasure of being involved in several events this year with PAWS.  In April I had a booth at Fido Spring Fling to help raise funds for heart-worm treatment. To see some of those adorable spring images check out my blog about the event. This past summer there were so many sponsored events that helps keep the cost down on adoptions. We did a dog day with several local dog vendors. I had a free Photo Booth to encourages donations and adoptions at the event. Check out those pictures here. One of my favorite things about this year is that one of my photographs of the shelter dog Jesse ended up on the newest PAWS truck. If you see the truck around check of the smiley dog on the back.

We definitely have fun dresses up the dogs based on the time of year. Between buying cute halloween outfits and getting fun donations from several places we always seem to have something for them all. Below are just some of the many pets that I had the pleasure of photographing this year.

Did you adopt a dog this year? Feel free to share your wonderful fur baby in the comments. I’d love to hear who you adopted and how they are doing now. Thank you to everyone who has adopted a new baby. Also thank  you to every like and share on Facebook. Every little effort helps find these wonderful creatures a new loving home.

  1. Look at all of these adoptable furbabies! I want to take them all home with me! I’m so glad you have fun volunteering your photography skills to help get these dogs, cats, rabbits, etc. into their forever homes. It takes a lot of patience to photograph animals and clearly you’re very talented!

    Such Awesome photos for PAWS. It is wonderful you donated so much time to helping these animals find homes. It is just so important that they have good photos. We donate photos and sometimes video in Philadelphia to help homeless animals. and we have 2 rescue dogs (just added our 2nd this year as a Christmas present to ourselves) and 5 stray/rescue cats we have taken in.

These creatures are lucky to have you on their team, and anyone looking to adopt a pet, should go to PAWS and then hire you to take new portraits!
