This week something wonderful happened. In my effort to help abused, neglected or abandoned animals find their forever home, I applied for membership to (and was accepted as) an Artist Member of Heartsspeak.Org. HeARTs Speak is an international nonprofit organization that unites art and advocacy to increase the visibility of animals in need of loving, caring permanent homes.
There are over 600 creative professionals across the world who offer their services for free to save and support animals through HeARTs Speak and I'm thrilled to be a part of it. Shelter organizations looking for creatives can search to find an artist in their area willing to help with photography, art and promotional material.
Rescue agencies within the Calgary/Cochrane/Airdrie/Okotoks areas looking for a volunteer photographer to take photos of animals up for adoption can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm available evenings and weekends.
