As part of my Mutts book crowdfunding campaign, I pledged to photograph 67 shelter dogs that were waiting for homes to up their chances of being adopted.
Great portraits of shelter dogs get shared on social media and drastically increase the odds of them getting a home.
One of the nominated shelters was Woodrock Animal Rescue and here are just a few of the dogs they have that are looking for homes.
I specifically photographed some of the dogs they’d had there the longest and when I say long, I mean years.
These portraits give you just a snapshot of the beautiful variety of dogs they have amongst the 150 in their care.
Woodrock don’t just have mixed breed mutts looking for home, they have a couple of pedigree dogs. I photographed a Scottie and a Pit Bull, so if you have a specific breed of dog that you’re looking for, I guarantee you’ll find one in rescue.
If you’re looking for a cat to adopt, Woodrock also have a cat section along with a large collection of beautiful donkeys and some geese!
For more information about Woodrock, the dogs they have available for adoption and their doggy boarding kennels, please visit their website – www.woodrockanimalrescue.com
I have several more shelters on the 67 dogs for Mandela Day list (I photographed 25 dogs at Woodrock), so watch this space for more shelter dog portraits.
