Giving back to animals in need has always been a priority in my life. As a child, and now into my adult life, stray animals always tend to find me! I cannot tell you how many dogs and cats I have picked up on the side of the road or how many hours I have spent chasing scared animals while trying to get them somewhere safe (whether that be in my fenced yard, garage, or even my basement.). I even had a duck spend the night in my bathroom once! Luckily I have always been able to reunite them with their family.
As an adult I have spent my time providing foster care for animals with a number of different rescues/shelters across the country. From cats in casts, motherless kittens, mothers with kittens and blind/deaf senior dogs, I have provided countless hours taking care of these animals as if they were my own. Unfortunately I am not currently able to provide foster care as I have too many of my own pets, but I am now able to spend my time photographing and showcasing animals for adoption.
I have worked with Pawsitive Match Rescue Foundation, EJ Rescue, Tails of the Misunderstood, Calgary Bassett Rescue Society, Boston Terrier Rescue Canada, and English Bull Terrier Rescue Canada, Animal Rescue Foundation, Pitbulls for Life, and Paws4Change either photographing adoptable animals or donating the proceeds of mini sessions to their efforts.
I currently volunteer with the Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation as a rescue driver and educational assistant.
