Texas Bans Gas Chambers for Animals
Thanks to you and animal lovers all over the country, gas chambers are now banned in the great…
Just a pool, disguised as a pond, with a trampoline instead of a diving board.
I wrote a paper about these kinds of pools several years ago for a class when they were just prototypes. These pools have a natural filtration system that run based on the plants that are in the pool that give the water nutrients that allow it to not only be crystal clear, but you are also able to drink the water because it becomes so clean. And the best part is that once the initial filtration system is installed and calibrated, it maintains itself and eliminates the need for chlorine or constant maintenance like salt water pools.
PHOTOGRAPHER TOURS SHELTERS TO HELP DOGS GET ADOPTED - “Our mission is to provide shelter staff and volunteers with the resources to successfully groom and photograph shelter pets, helping give them the second chance they deserve.”
The One Picture Saves a Life initiative teaches animal shelters how to groom and photograph the shelter animals to present them in the best light (probably both literally and figuratively) for adoption. Photographer Seth Casteel is currently touring various shelters in the U.S. to put on workshops. You may be familiar with Casteel’s Underwater Dogs series. The photos above are examples of how different the dogs look depending on how they are presented.
In addition to Casteel, John Paul Pet, The Animal Rescue Site, GreaterGood.org, and the Petfinder Foundation are all partners in this endeavor. Click here to learn more about One Picture Saves a Life. You can also donate to this cause by clicking here. (Photos from One Picture Saves a Life)
This is so important! I almost want to volunteer to come to shelters with my Nikon. The picture of my kitten that I got from the shelter’s website was so awful. I wouldn’t have picked her based off that. Luckily I went in and met the cats in person. In the photo she was terrified and backed in a corner, and it was in black and white.
She is one of the cutest cats I’ve ever seen and has big blue eyes and is super playful and energetic and sweet. You couldn’t see ANY of that from the photo :(
I am tearing up! I just can’t! The second to last dog looks like slug!
Plus, that smile at the bottom <3
