Over the last two weekends, I’ve been busy with Project Pearl, a non-profit based here in Winston-Salem. Project Pearl is partnered with Forsyth County Animal Shelter and local professional photographers to promote animal adoptions and welfare. A week and a half ago, I had a quick on-site session to grab updated photos of Patty, who I recently wrote about, and Reesie, another Project Pearl foster dog. This past weekend, I had a normal fun photography session at the shelter, where I photographed a number of dogs. Enjoy the photos and make sure to check out Project Pearl’s website or Facebook page to get up to date news on adoptions.

Last week, I had a quick photo session with Project Pearl here in Winston-Salem, NC, to photograph a litter that’s part of the Project Pearl foster program. These pups will be up for adoption over the weekend. Make sure to check out the Project Pearl Facebook page or website for more information.

I first met Patty in the fall of 2012. Patty came to the Forsyth County Animal Control from a cruelty case, with a severe case of demodex mange and emaciation, and a few other health issues. Project Pearl took her in as a sponsored animal into foster care and she received immediate medical care and found a long-term loving home. I photographed her transformation throughout several months, shown below.

About a week and a half ago, I did a quick foster photo session for Project Pearl here in Winston-Salem. Project Pearl is a non-profit organization committed to partnering professional photographers with Forsyth County Animal Shelter to provide photos of adoptable animals, as well as promote animal ownership education. They have also expanded to include a foster program for pregnant pups and dogs from cruelty cases. While puppies are cute, Project Pearl is strongly committed to promoting spaying and neutering all domestic animals!! Here are photos of a set of two litters born from two Beagle moms, Bella and Millie, who will be up for adoption soon. Make sure to check out Project Pearl’s website or Facebook Page to stay up to date on adoption and event news.

Several weeks ago, I had a volunteer photo session with Stepping Stones Canine Rescue, a rescue group here in Winston-Salem. Stepping Stones has a number of great adoptable dogs available for adoption, as well as a few very young puppies that came into the program at a very young age and requiring to be bottle fed by the volunteers. Below are photos from the session with them – make sure to check out the Stepping Stones website to see who is currently available. I was terrible at recording these guys & gals names, so some of them are unknown!
