San Diego Humane Society, Adoptable Pets, Pet Photography

Today’s photography session at the San Diego Humane Society was all about featuring the adoptable pets who’ve been in the shelter for over a month. There’s several reasons why these animals haven’t been able to find a home yet. Some have medical conditions that need tending to, some are too shy and timid to interact with strangers. Whatever the case, they all deserve to find loving homes…and I have faith that they will someday. As a pet photographer, I sometimes find it a bit more difficult to photograph the animals who are shy, scared, tired, or uninterested. But, I’m always up for the challenge because I know a good photo can go a long way for these guys (and gals). If you’re looking to adopt a fur baby and you see a photo of one that gives you even the slightest warmth inside, do them a favor and pay them a visit. Even the best photograph can’t fully portray they’re personality to the fullest. So, you never know…that one cat you thought was kind of cute might just be the perfect addition to your family ­čÖé

San Diego Humane Society, Adoptable Cat, Pet Photography

One thing’s for sure, the San Diego Humane Society never has a need for adoptable cats. It’s not that the cats don’t get adopted…quite the contrary! It’s just that there’s SO many cats that come in and out of the doors at SD Humane. Cats from off the streets, cats from owners who had to give them up, cats who didn’t quite work out with the family that adopted them. Whatever the reason for a cat being at the Humane Society, they are sure to find a forever home at some point. I visit the San Diego Humane Society every other week to take pictures of the cats who are waiting to be adopted, and it’s quite rare that I see the same cat twice. In fact, it’s reported that, in the year 2015-2016, the San Diego Humane Society found homes for 7,095 cats. That’s almost 20 cats per day! How incredible is that?! Oddly enough, they adopt more cats than dogs. Read the full statistic report HERE. But before you do that, check out these little fur babies that are looking to get adopted. Will you be the one to provide their forever home?
