I had the first in a series of shoots for Homeward Pet Adoption Center this last weekend - they put together a wonderful, high quality calendar each year to raise funds for their no-kill shelter out in Woodinville. This big, lucky guy is Rusty and he was adopted from the shelter and welcomed into a wonderful family that includes fellow adoptees Sammy and Morgan (below). Rusty had been through a LOT before coming to Homeward Pet but he is a testament to the forgiving nature of dogs and is full of love and joy. If you're looking for a new best friend, consider adopting a pet from Homeward Pet or any of our local animal shelters. They do great work and help to provide lots of great pets with happier, more loved lives.
