The shelter dog & deaf dog photo book project

Posted Mar 15 09 4:29pm

 Today was all about Archie and Lydia…and countless other dogs. They spent the afternoon with Melissa McDaniel, a very talented and generous pet photographer.  She came to the house today to take pictures of both my dogs for a her book about rescue dogs.

As part of the Photo Book Projects, Melissa is traveling the US and Canada taking pictures of dogs who are in shelters or rescue groups, or former rescues who now have loving, forever homes. Melissa’s own dog, Sadie, is from a shelter, but she’s also deaf. Because of her experience with Sadie, and after volunteering at her local SPCA, Melissa wanted to do something to help shelter dogs and deaf dogs. After giving it some thought, she came up with the idea of traveling the country and taking photos of pets for two books; one about shelter dogs, and one about deaf dogs. Her goal is to bring awareness to the fact that there are many wonderful pets in need of homes. She wants people to know dogs from shelters aren’t “damaged goods.” Many of them are there because their people move and can’t or won’t take their pets, their homes are foreclosed on, or other reasons that have nothing to do with the dog.

At each stop on the tour Melissa is also making appointments to take photos for anyone who’d like some great photos of their pets. She invites pet businesses to contact her about hosting a photo day at their place of business. You can also pre-order the books, which Melissa hopes to have out by the end of the year. A portion of the sales will go to rescue groups, and in fact, rescue groups and shelters can raise money for their groups through sales. See her website for more info.

You can find out where Melissa is going to be by following her blog or joining her facebook page.

Thanks for including my guys, Melissa! I can’t wait to see the books - I know they’re going to be beautiful.

About the photos: Those aren’t Melissa’s photos. I took the one of Archie, but the one of Lydia was taken when she was in the shelter, a couple days before I adopted her.
