“Faces of Furever” is a photographic art project with a focus on documenting families of adopted dogs. We want to show the world what Furever looks like and encourage more families to adopted abandoned dogs. We want to honor these people and tell their stories to the world so that others will consider rescuing instead of buying.
We will partner with rescues, shelters and businesses to bring this project to as many people as we can. Shelters and rescues will have one more resource to raise funds and promote their adoptable animals while businesses can show their customers how dedicated they are to ending the homeless animal problem.
I am happy to announce that my new photo project "Faces of Furever" is about to launch with it's first event.
June 11, 2016 from 10am to 2pm at Pitties in Need of Kennels office in Kewanee IL 113 W 3rd Street.
PINK is our first organization that we have teamed up with to make this project possible.
"So what is this"? This project is my way of putting a face or faces to the word Furever and show the world who is stepping up and adopting instead of shopping. We will be doing professional portraits of families with their adopted dog(s). Those photos will be displayed through multiple mediums as a tribute to everyone who is doing their part in stopping the homeless dog epidemic.
We will be taking a $10.00 donation that will go to P.I.N.K to help them with their operation costs so they can continue their work. With that donation you will get your portrait taken with you adopted dog and family. To be apart of this project we do ask that at least one of your dogs be adopted from a shelter, rescue, ect.
Your photo will be available to download from my Facebook site or my website. You will be able to take your photo and have it printed wherever you like. To be clear we will not be printing photos on site you will be responsible for having your photos printed if you would like.
I am volunteering my time and talent for this project and am receiving no compensation for this event. But if you would like to help keep this project going you will be able to purchase your prints through my website. If you decide to purchase prints from my site that will help move this project forward and cover my costs for doing it. The sales from the prints will help me bring this project to more shelters and more families. You are not required to purchase a print and I will never try to sell you one later it is completely up to you.
So bring your family and your fury family out on June 11th from 10am-2pm to help support P.I.N.K and help me get this project off the ground.
All dogs must be up to date on vaccinations and be able to get along with other dogs. They must also be leashed. You are responsible for cleaning up after your pet and keeping your pet under control. There will be many dogs at this event so please keep that in mind when considering attending. Due to the limited space we will have you may need to wait in your car or wait outside so that we can give the dogs the space they need.
All participants will be required to sign a model release form for adults and minors. These photos may be posted on my website, facebook, twitter or used for promotional use. They could also be posted to other websites than the ones I've listed.
