The guitar case puppies | Drayton Valley Pet adoption photography

Animal shelters are ran by volunteers, are non profit and are saving animals lives everyday. I had no idea how many animals in our community were being helped until my friend Lauren; a volunteer with our local shelter "Cause for Critters," told me the remarkable story about a littler of 8 Akita golden retriever cross puppies. 
 
These cute little guys and girls became orphans after only 2 weeks of life when their mother passed away. They nicknamed them the guitar case puppies. The shelter needed to find away to save the lives of these 8 little cuties.   The staff of Cause for Critters heard about a breeder in a near by community who had a female Rottweiler who was lactating and had no puppies and was not expecting any puppies either. What a blessing, this Rottweiler was a hope for the little puppies.  Within hours of meeting the puppies the female dog was nursing, had counted and watching over the puppies as if they were her own.
 
After hearing this remarkable story I offered to help get adoption families for these beautiful miracle puppies by photographing them, so they would have beautiful adoption pictures to show potential families. When we were ready to photograph the puppies; Lauren was fostering 4 of the puppies while 3 were still growing with the surrogate mother; one little puppy didn't make it. The puppies were photographed in 2 batches and we were also able to photograph 2 kittens during one of the sessions. With the help of Lauren and Carmen (we are On-The-Spot photo booth services together) who wrangled the little furry friends for their photo shoot, I was able to capture the true personalities of the puppies and  kittens now they have beautiful adoption portfolios.
 
I was so moved by the story and all the efforts made by Cause For Critters that I also had a beautiful Canvas made to be hung at the shelter showcasing the group of 3 puppies that I met at the second session. I am looking forward to working with more of the adoption animals to help them find forever homes.
