Pet Rescue Charity Shoot

So anyone who knows me or regularly stalks me on facebook knows that there’s two issues that I care very deeply about:

The first, Gay Marriage or what will hopefully be referred to as Marriage one day.

The second, Animals.

I love furry friends, although I’m not really sure who doesn’t… Maybe fish owners? Recently I’ve become acutely aware that some people somehow don’t love them and in turn end up seriously mistreating or abandoning their pets. Since I can’t watch one of those Sarah Mclachlan commercials for more than 30 seconds I try to help at the local level.

Recently I had the honor of joining forces with designer Eva Danielle to be part of her project Fashion Tails.  The project puts 40 world famous fashion photographers with models/celebrities and animals from rescues that are available for adoption. In partnership with CharestWeinberg Art Gallery located in Miami, the photos will be on display during an exhibition dedicated to the work for 1 month in September. The opening reception will bring much needed attention to the cause through media exposure but most importantly homes for these animals.

Our shoot was made possible by the amazing Pet Rescue by Judy. The following images are entitled Feline Aves which is meant to show the juxtaposition of strong independent cat and soft sweet bird.

  1. I adopted my dog Jessi from Pet Rescue by Judy three and a half years ago. They do a wonderful job of matching animals and forever families. Thank you for your beautiful photography and your support.

  2. My 4 yr old daughter & I adopted the kittens from the photo shoot without knowing they were celebrities! Their foster mom recently sent us the link to your website. They are absolutely beautiful pictures. What a wonderful surprise!

    • Wow! didn’t realize you had responded to me…. last year! LOL! I adopted the ones formerly known as Panda & Iris. The light siamese seal point mix kitten & the grey tabby kitten with the white feet. They are now know as Jasmine & Jypsey. They are each about 12 lbs now and are wonderful cats! Sorry for the delayed response! :)
