"Pound Song" from Lady & the Tramp
Summer's here and so are more friendly faces from the Orange County Humane Society shelter, just a block up Newland from the beach! The Humane Society is now also showcasing some of their dogs, cats, and rabbits at the Strand on 5th and PCH during the Huntington Beach Tuesday night street fair every week. Check them out!
Bobby begs, "Please, pick me!"
Vita the curious cat!
The sleek Elvira
Poor Simon was living the good life until his owner died and no one would take him in :(
This is either Tweedledee or Tweedledum...hard to say--they're twins, after all!
Frida prefers the two-legged view!
The handsome Dash
Myra couldn't resist the kitty toy!
If you're going to end a post with a smile, there's no smilier face than Indigo's! She just loves life!
What's that? Time for more furry widdle faces that I just wanna nom-nom-nom?? You got it!Little Lolita
During my latest shoot at the OC Humane Society I was so pleased to see that a good number of their available pets had been adopted over the holidays! SOOO franjabulous that people are adopting these pets-in-need instead of buying from petstores, many of which purchase their dogs from cruel puppy mills.But who wants to hear from me when there are CUTE FURRY FACES to look at!!
Phil, whom I photographed last time, also.
YAY!! It's that time again! Time for more Orange County Humane Society dogs and cats! Debbie, the director of this particular HS branch, told me that the shelter has had an influx of interested pet owners over the past month, maybe for the holidays. Additionally on average they adopt out about 25 pets a week (which is great!!), so there's no guarantee that any of the pets pictured here on my blog will be there by the time you stop by...especially the small cute ones. BUT they are ALWAYS getting in new animals and sometimes it's a few weeks before I can get in to photograph them, so it's worth a visit anyway---because obviously they will ALWAYS have a number of great, adorable pets! I'm just the person who captures a few of those faces now and again. Anyhoo...onward!
Lil' Blitzen. The OCHS employees tell me that black cats are the hardest to place in homes. Maybe because even in the 21st century people are superstitious?? PUH-LEEZ, PEOPLE. Blitzen is just as lovable as any other color kitty!
This morning I volunteered to do some special photos for the Orange County Humane Society, hoping that with some pro "headshots" some of their wards will be adopted sooner. I dunno about anyone else, but a photo is a HUGE sell for me when I'm browsing products (or pets?) online, and hopefully they'll make a difference for these dogs and cats who are looking for a home!As always, please consider adoption when looking into getting a dog or a cat, and ALWAYS SPAY AND NEUTER!!
