“My philosophy is to create a safe and stress free environment and photograph your pets being themselves, whether it be sitting on the couch, bed, their favorite blanket, looking out the window, enjoying nature, against a simple background or bonding with you.

National Adopt a dog month And National Adopt a Shelter dog month

Across the valley there are numerous places that you can choose from to adopt a dog. Many Shelters are full and have weekend discounts so they can open up space for new dogs. Unfortunately some will be placed on the E-List almost immediately due to its breed, temperament or health.
A dog that is on the "E-List" (to be euthanized) is commonly a dog that might have growled when captured or put into a kennel, but it doesn't necessarily mean they are aggressive.
