I’m not sure if you’re familiar with an initiative that’s making the rounds on social media called #feedthedeed. It was started by a student at the University of Western Ontario where one student nominates a friend to do a good deed. Once they do it’s posted on Facebook and that person nominates another. My oldest son was home from university last week and he was nominated to Feed the Deed. Being an animal lover (yes he’s a chip of the old blog) he decided to gather supplies (old towels and blankets we had at home) then bought some toys, collars and leashes and head to Toronto Animal Services (TAS) near our home to donate all of these things to the shelter. I accompanied him to the shelter that day and while there I started talking to the staff and I let them know that I was a photographer and if they ever needed pictures taken of their animals I would be more than happy to help them out. They already had a photographer but indicated that TAS West Region was in need of pictures for their adoption page and would I mind coming out one weekend to photograph the animals.
It’s always a pleasure to help out shelters and rescue groups by photographing the animals for their adoption pages. I hope that this small gesture on my part will help unite a beautiful animal with their forever family.
With out further ado here are the beautiful four-leggers that are available for adoption from Toronto Animal Services – West Region.
The last 2 dogs just arrived at the shelter have not been named yet. All the dogs and cats were so sweet and were just craving cuddling with a human. Please share this post and give these animals a chance to a forever home.
Reblogged this on Edith Levy Photography and commented:
I don’t usually re blog but I thought this was an important post. Anything that would give these animals a chance at a forever home is worth doing. I just posted this to my PhoDOGraphy by Edith site. Have a look and let me know what you think. Please consider following my new site to stay up to date with my adventures as an intrepid pet photographer 🙂
Beautifully shot Edith. You are to be commended for your work. I hope these images help them find a home soon.
Thank you so much Len. I hope so too. They were such sweet and gentle animals and so deserving of a good home.
I’m a huge believer in rescuing shelter animals. All my life since I was a child, we’ve obtained our furry friends from shelters. Thumbs up to this post!
Thank you so very much Laura. I really appreciate it.
Fantastic! Wonderful work, Edith!!
Thank you so much Melanie.
Awww… such cute animals and all would make excellent pets.
Sadly we just lost or cat Jack after 22 years of being my best friend. He was a rescue as all of our pets have been. They make the best friends and are true family members.
I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of Jack. I know how hard it is to lose a pet. I really appreciate the visit and the comments Phil.
These are really beautiful photographs, Edith, and I so hope that all of these sweet ones find a forever home.
Happy day to you!
Thank you so much Lisa. Me too!
Hugo looks like he is about to speak! Excellent shots!
You must be proud of your son 🙂
Thank you so much LB and yes I am very proud of my son.
Thank you for this… I foster for a large, “No Kill” shelter here in Dayton, Ohio. This work is very important (I have some photos on Flickr) and good. ❤ !!
Thanks Herietta. I’d love to find loving homes for everyone of these animals.
Pets that are as cute as those definitely belong in warm loving home with a family to care of them.
Thank you Paul. You’re absolutely right.
