Los Angeles has an over population issue with dogs. There are thousands of dogs all over LA who are homeless due to overbreeding (legal and illegal puppy mills), birth control, as well as owners who can't or do not want to take care of their family pet anymore and surrender them to their local animal shelter or give them away on Craigslist (so bad).
In the 1980's LA's human population was at about 3 million, fast forward to now 2018ish, we are at 4 million. Lots of other mammals and creatures multiple too- companions.
So, I decided when I first moved here from Oakland, to make it my personal mission to help get these homeless and voiceless pups a chance to be seen to the general public via the internet through photography.
A few times a month I volunteer my time to take portraits of dogs at my local neighboring shelter, South LA Animal Shelter as well as help out any other rescues in LA, who may need some spiffy photos to help promote their dawgies get into a furever home!
