I’ve held my very favorite volunteer job going on two years now. It involved going to my local shelter and taking photos of the newly arrived critters so they can be posted on the “available” site, shown on Facebook and generally get some publicity as they search for their forever home. I’ve fallen in love multiple times and as a result now own two rescued dogs in addition to my rescued “studio cat” that’s been with us for almost 10 years!
I’m not sharing details on these images because they span the entire time I’ve been taking photos and, to the best of my knowledge, these cute critters have all found homes. If you’d like to see some of the wonderful animals in your area please visit the local shelter or it’s website. They are hard to resist, whether you’re a cat lover….
Or prefer the pooches….
It’s an awesome thing to share your heart & life with these babies that just want to be your friend. Furry love to you all,
Last month I began showing some images of animals that I photographed during my trip out west. I thought I’d continue with those photos today. These are all the more “domestic” type animals – horses, sheep, cows – that I ran across as I traveled.
When I approached this field full of sheep I thought it was a hillside covered with scattered, bleached out rocks. Until I got close enough to hear all the bleating!
I also ran across a group of dogs that seemed to be guarding sheep on one of the dirt roads I traveled down. They were really excited to “herd” me along the road and make sure I didn’t bother their sheep.
I think, perhaps, they should have paid more attention to the sheep though – a short way down the road I found this guy wandering all by himself!
My next post of critter pictures will feature buffalo/bison, moose and elk – look for it soon!
