How Paws + Tails Pet Photography Gives Back to the Community

Updated: Aug 2, 2023

Here at Paws + Tails Pet Photography, I believe in the power of paying it forward and spreading love throughout our community. It's not just about running a successful business, but also about making a positive impact in the lives of pets and their human companions. Our journey into the world of pet photography was inspired by two incredible feline companions, Lisa-Lee and Poly-Ana, who taught us the value of capturing precious moments and making a difference.

The Heartwarming World of Rescue Photography

As I embarked on this beautiful journey with my fur-kids, I became aware of the incredible need for high-quality adoption photos for rescue pets. These pictures can be the key to finding forever homes for these precious souls. In 2015, we officially joined Hearts Speak, an organization that unites over 600+ photographers worldwide, working tirelessly to help shelter and rescue animals. Together, we volunteer more than 25,000 hours per month, collaborating with shelters and rescues in 20 countries.

The story of Twinkles stands as a shining example of how rescue photos work wonders. After three months of no interest, Twinkles' fate changed when we captured her playful and adorable spirit in a heartwarming photo session. Within 48 hours of posting her photos, she found an amazing new home and a wagging tail filled with happiness. It's incredible to witness the impact of these photos, as they increase adoption rates by a remarkable 60%!

If you're a local rescue group in need of professional photos to help your fur-babies find forever homes, give us a bark, and we'd be thrilled to lend a helping paw!

Quarterly Featured Charity Program - Giving Back Every Step of the Way

Beyond rescue photography, I have a special place in our hearts for local animal non-profit groups and rescue organizations. Through our Quarterly Featured Charity Program, we spotlight a new local non-profit group each quarter. To support their compassionate efforts, we donate 10% of all sales for that quarter to the chosen organization.

It doesn't stop there! I create blog posts to share their remarkable work, leverage the power of social media to spread the word, and even organize small fundraising events to lend them a paw. If you represent a local non-profit animal rescue group or any other animal-related organization, I'd love to hear from you! Let's work together to amplify your mission and create a positive impact in our community.

Supporting Local Silent Auction Fundraising Events

I firmly believe that every little contribution counts and that's why we happily donate to local silent auction fundraising events for great causes. If your non-profit organization is raising funds for a local initiative, give us a bark, and let's discuss how I can contribute to your event.

Small gestures, big impacts! We firmly resonate with Mother Teresa's inspiring words: "None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful." It's these small acts of kindness, together with the collective efforts of our compassionate community, that can bring about positive change for our furry friends.

So, let's unite in giving back to the community, one wagging tail and warm heart at a time! Book a session with Paws + Tails Pet Photography today and be part of our journey of spreading love, and joy, and making a difference!
