This week, we had the opportunity to spend the afternoon at the Champaign County Humane Society (http://www.cuhumane.org/) for a good cause: trying to get some animals into their forever homes for the holidays.
The staff at the Humane Society were so great to work with and it was nice to see how much they wanted to see their animals go to good homes. So, with that in mind, we set up for our “Adopt Me” portrait sessions! We photographed cats, dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs during the session and each one was a joy to photograph. Each animal has their own personality that we wanted to shine through in their pictures.
Meet Mia and Kane.
Mea is the playful, young pup that is so adorable. Kane just wants your attention (and some peanut butter!).
Pepper & Skittles and Timon & Pumbaa (bonded pairs)
Pepper and Skittles want to make sure they go to the same home because they have been together so long they don’t know what they would do without one another. Timon and Pumbaa, the guinea pigs, love to talk to each other, so they also want to stay together and go to the same home.
Meet Papaya and Charger
Papaya is a calm, beautiful young cat that would be right at home with someone that has a comfy lap. Charger is the curious cat that just wants to do a little exploring while Polly wants to be involved so she knows what’s going on.
And then there is Oakley.
Oakley is a cautious rabbit but so gorgeous with that silky black and white fur.
They all have their own story to tell and our intention was to make sure someone connected with their story enough that they just have to have them in their family!
Give them a Merry Christmas
This session was a wonderful session for us because we know the kind of animals that can be found at the Humane Society: we have adopted three dogs over the years and they have all licked and wiggled their way into our hearts and lives. So, this Christmas, if you are looking for a lovable, furry companion, check out our featured pets. Or, go over to the Champaign County Humane Society and meet some of the other wonderful pets that are there. Any of the animals there would make a great addition to your family. Plus, adopting a pet now will make their Christmas really special because they will finally have their furever home!
