About me

East Coast transplant

Favorite photographers: Man Ray, Ansel Adams

Favorite artists: Max Ernst, Salvador Dali, Wassily Kandinsky...to name a few

Very amateur hobby photographer, hit or miss, often miss...

So, the reason for all of the dog photos...I operate a "dog rescue", whereby I take in dogs from animal shelters which are to be euthanized and care for them until I find permanent homes for them.

Each year in the United States, millions of unwanted pets are surrendered to animal shelters or animal control facilities. These pets have about a 10% chance of being adopted. The others are euthanized, mostly via lethal injection, but in some states, e.g. Georgia, Ohio, North Carolina, to name a few, via gas chambers.

This is a huge problem caused by uncontrolled breeding, neglect, abandonment and abuse of pets.

My photos are here to make a point and to shed light on a societal problem. So, comments are welcome, but please keep in mind these are all pets who were once discarded, abused, neglected and left for dead. They are not professional models or actors, any more than I am a professional photographer. They are just "being" and we are just having fun being together.
