Petchitecture 2014

I got to photograph the 2014 Petchitecture event at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco last Friday night. This event is the main fundraising gala for Pets Are Wonderful Support, a wonderful organization that helps people in need keep their pets by providing food, veterinary care and more.

This is one of my very favorite events to photograph in the Bay Area, and this year marks the 4th year I’ve photographed Petchitecture.

Rescue Me: Oakland Animal Services 5/9

New photos from Oakland Animal Services! I visited the shelter last Thursday for an afternoon photographing more adoptable dogs and it was a blast! This time we worked with a lot of smaller dogs which was really fun… and the BEST part of this day was being able to give names some of the new arrivals (Archie, Pina, Stuart, Samson, Sawyer, Sprite, Whiskey, Wilson)!

Foster Pet Photos – Macio the Pitbull

Macio the pitbull, a foster dog from Rocket Dog Rescue came to the studio this week for some new adoption photos. He is a big handsome fellow who is looking for his forever home. His previous owners did not have time to properly care for him because they had three small children, so he lived most of his life outside in the backyard. Macio’s looking for an active new family who is willing to keep him busy and take the time to train and socialize him.

Here’s an excerpt about Macio written by his foster dad!

Macio (2 y/o) is a strong, intelligent, and athletic dog who is wonderful with kids. When his previous owners couldn’t afford to keep him anymore RDR stepped in to help get Macio off the streets of North Oakland and into a foster home. We know he was raised by a mother with three young children, and was an outside dog at their home. Macio is a huge cuddle bug, and minds the house rules very well. He stays off furniture and is house broken. He’s a real gentleman! Macio loves to chase balls and play fetch, or run next to a bike. He is a major “muscle dog” and and incredible athlete.

His perfect forever home would be with someone who has a yard where he can hang during the day. While he is calm at home, and can chill very well, he’s an athletic dog and needs to use his muscles! As his new owner, you should be dog confident and know the Pitt Bull breed. Macio wasn’t well socialized with other dogs as a puppy, so he needs a helping hand to stay focused and keep his calm submissive attitude. He’s ready to learn, and is food motivated which makes training a ton easier. If you are an active person looking for a companion on the trails, on the road, and on the couch, please consider this amazing boy.

You can find out more about Macio at www.rocketdogrescue.org.

If you have a foster pet in the SF bay area, don’t forget that my studio is always open – you can bring your foster pet over for a complimentary adoption photo shoot. Find out more at www.fosterpetphotos.com.

Rescue Me: Oakland Animal Services

I went to Oakland Animal Services for the first time this week to photograph some shelter animals. Since it was my first time going there we decided to start shooting the long-term animals first, and then move on to the other shelter residents. Here are some of my favorite shots!

If you are interested in adding any of these animals to your family, please visit www.oaklandanimalservices.org to find out how to apply.

You can view more photos of each of these animals in our facebook album HERE. You can also keep up with my volunteer work at the shelter at www.shelterpetphotos.com.

If you are an active tweeter and/or pinner, I encourage you to share these images in your feed and on your boards, the more we can get the word out about these animals the better!
