Helping Rescue Pets Find Their Happy Tails

Helping shelter + rescue pets has been a passion of mine ever since I adopted Poly-Ana in 2009.  It was through taking photos of her that I realized how much something as simple as a great photograph could help make a pets wish of finding their forever home come true.  In fact, it raises their chance of adoption by over 60%!  As a Hearts Speak Artist, my goal is to make sure that no shelter or rescue pet goes unseen and that all their wishes for a forever home come true.  If you’re a local animal rescue group or shelter here on Vancouver Island North and the Tri-Ports Area especially and are in need of photographs, be sure to give me a bark, I’d love to lend a helping paw!

Fundraising & Donations

for local non profits

Who doesn’t love a great silent auction event or gala? It’s a great way to learn about a great local non-profit group, lend a helping paw and connect with great local businesses who love to give back to their communities.  If you’re a local animal nonprofit group that needs Silent Auction donations for your silent auction event, please be sure to give me a bark! I’d love to help if I can.  While I cannot guarantee a donation to every single request, I do try my very best to do so as often as I am able to do so. 

I believe that every pet deserves a happy tail + phenomenal family to call their own.  It gives me great joy to help be a part of that process by giving back to local rescue groups + non-profit organizations.  My own Poly-Ana is adopted.  I adopted her in 2009 and having her become a part of my family and has been my constant companion, best friend and been there through some of life’s tougher times.  

 Giving back is something that has always been a big part of our family and it always puts a big smile on my face.  Besides donating my time as a Hearts Speak Photographer capturing adoption photos to help rescue pets find their happily ever afters; I also have a quarterly feature charity program that helps spread the word + collect donations + wish list items for great local animal charities as well as donate goodies for rescue groups + organizations silent auction events + fundraisers.   

Quarterly Featured Charity Program

Lending a helping paw is quite simply ingrained in my DNA, I love lending one wherever I can.  To help get the word out about all of our amazing local (animal) nonprofit organizations, each quarter I showcase an amazing local non profit group on my blog + social media and let people know more about them and how they can lend a helping paw; we do a fundraising photo session event for them and 10% of all my profits each quarter are also donated to them as well through my Featured Charity Program.  If you’re a local animal non profit group who would like to be a participate, please be sure to give me a bark!

Paws + Tails Pet Photography is located in magnificent Port Alice BC and specializes in candid, natural light pet photography.  As a lifestyle pet photographer, I photograph dogs, horses, cats and all kinds of critters on location on the picturesque North Island.
