Willpower, a lot of willpower. That is what it takes while photographing the dogs and cats that are up for adoption at Alchemy Acres in Salem, Ohio. I want to take every single one of them home with me during the photo shoots. This week I spent a few hours photographing almost 20 animals there that are looking for their forever homes.
Again this week I had so many fantastic subjects to work with. I of course, love the puppies and kittens and those little balls of fur usually are adopted quickly. It makes me sad to see the older dogs and cats that once had loving homes, that are now in search of new pet parents. Usually older animals end up at shelters and rescues for reasons other than the pet itself. They are the best of the bunch to photograph, that is for sure. Most of the older dogs know commands and are happy to pose for treats.
Below are just a few of the dogs and cats looking for their new homes. Don’t see one that you fall in love with? Stop over to the Alchemy Acres website and take a peak at all the animals up for adoption.
