Last week we looked at cat rescue and how well taken photos can help to draw animal lovers in and help to motivate them to adopt a cat at a café in either Washington, DC or Los Angeles, CA. After we posted our cat article we received an email telling us about a group whose photographer members do the same to help spread the word about dog rescue organizations. HeARTs Speak’s membership spans 20 countries, including 47 U.S. states, Germany, Italy, Brazil, Singapore, Argentina, Canada, the U.K., Venezuela, Lithuania, and the Netherlands.
HeARTs Speak’s network of artists & advocates provide their services pro-bono to animal welfare organizations in communities. Dogster magazine recently posted an article about their work.
As Dogster says, “not every shelter or rescue has the means to afford professional photography, nor the skills and equipment necessary to take great photos.” You can see the value of good photos here and by looking at their work in the article we link to after the photos. And, if after reading the article you’re interested, you can become a HeARTs Speak member. Here’s Lily
