    Cats and all other animals are allowed! it is a page to help animals in shelters and pounds - so anyone with more than 2 legs and less than 6 can feature!

    can you pinch her a little bit so she looks miserable for the photo
    All I'd have to do is eat something she wants, in front of her. Like cheese and bikkies or steak...

    If I used video I could probably get some of her being really viscious looking too. Not fast enough to photograph it.

    Someone at our local park today was talking about AWL looking for web page support and photographers and groomers to help their dogs look more attractive in pictures. Apparently it helps them get adopted quicker.

    I'm not big on the dog in cage look - I don't want to go there. I'm much more interested in a bit of video showing the dog with humans and other dogs but I saw neither for Frosty - she never made it to the website.

    Since we're on the subject of rescue, someone on the dark side posted this brilliant and accurate thought
    Rescue is where (the dog) came from, not who (it) is.

    I really admire photographers and groomers who volunteer to help shelters and pounds.

    Hooch never made it to a shelter, he was in the pound on deathrow so cage photo is all we had, when he got home he could hardly walk as his muscles were under developed and starved, he was in the darkness in the cage for a month. It was his last plea, the shelter was too full so they just put the ad out there in case someone sees it in time... alot to be said about country pounds, hell on earth.
    I never think of him as a "rescue". He was rescued. The before photos break my heart but my son's heart is in the right place and you have to look at it to deal with it.
    He is running a campaign so the webpage is only one of his planned activities.

    I don't have any before and after pictures of dogs because neither of my dogs are rescues. I don't have any before and after photos of my ferrets because I adopted them before the foster carer even had the chance to advertise them Even though he is a rescue, I don't have a before and after picture of Seby my black and white cat. However I do have before and after pictures of my other two cats, Tank and Bubbles

    This is Tank, he is an extremely people loving cat. My local vet rescue cats and kittens and Tank was stuck at my vet waiting for a home for 6 months before we found him, he would have been so lonely at the vet.

    Bubbles was adopted with Tank, they were in the same cage there. She was stuck at the vet for 3 months, and she was terrified of absolutely everyone. You can see in her before photo that she is trying to get away from the person holding the camera Once we got her home it took us about a week to get her to even let us pat her. Hard work paid off though, she is now the most beautiful loving little girl ever None of my friends have seen her though, she is still terrified of strangers.

    Note the particular shelter featured - got a lot of winges about how they manage things - eg keeping dogs for 5 years in a shelter environment - yikes. But at least they're trying some better marketing to move their dogs along.

    I think AWL put their long stay dogs on the web first but it can be like buying a house - if the dog has been there more than a month it might be a good idea to take it off the web and put it up again later. Or get a much better photo.
