I was invited to Olympia Animal Services shelter in Lacey, WA to take pictures of the animals.
The kitties were first up. I started with two office kitties. This guy was laying in the "in-box" next to the computer monitor. His eyes hypnotize me.
Then there was this guy. I cant remember his name...I think it was Carl? Such a ham.
He posed for me so nicely.
I was seriously thinking about stuffing him into my camera bag and taking him home.
Then I saw this lovely young man.
My stars...what a handsome boy.
I didnt think my chances of stuffing two kitties in my camera bag were that good. I knew I had to find another plan when I saw this dapper young kitty.
Oh my...another one.
I want them all....
Meet Banjo, a lovely Goffin Cockatoo. I was totally smitten.
For some reason Banjo liked me too. He hopped up onto my camera and ran up my arm, where he played in my hair. That was the end of me.
Stick me with a fork...I am done.
Now that I was adopting 26 cats and a cockatoo, it was time for the dogs.
doG help me....WANT!
Such a gentle spirit.
Then we had comic relief with this energetic Jack Russell mix.
What a hyper, bouncy, wacknut! I was in love, again.
Could you imagine him with Ranger? Call the coroner, I would die.
This lovely little senior spaniel wormed her way into my heart.
Such a quiet soul.
Please adopt her.
I was ready to add a Rottweiler to our pack too, when I met this wonderful lady. Look at that face!
Immediately go to your shelter and adopt someone. They all deserve homes.
Whatcha waiting for? GO NOW!
He is waiting for you too...
Every shape, size, age...
Just waiting for you to take them home, so they can love you for the rest of their life.
Thank you for thinking of rescue FIRST!
