I have had the pleasure of volunteering for Pup Squad Animal Rescue since 2009. My work with them consists of photographing dogs (and sometimes cats) in foster care, in hopes that good pictures lead to good homes. Pup Squad is an amazing organization, diligently working to rescue Momma dogs and their pups from shelters or the streets, along with dogs that don't fall into these catagories. I have always wanted to assist in rescue, but for me being in a shelter is too overwhelming, emotionally. For my skills and love of dogs, photography was the best fit in regards to helping, and I believe it does work. I believe showing a rescued animal's "good side" truly broadens their chances of being recognized and hopefully adopted. I truly enjoy the whole crew at Pup Squad and how could you not love the subjects! Pup Squad's 2012 calendar is available, which I had the pleasure of photographing all the pups that are featured throughout.

Also, I regularly post adoptable pets on my Facebook page, so you can check them out there as well. www.facebook.com/sonyasellersphotography
