Last month I had the good fortune to get to attend and photograph a Ginger's Pet Rescue adoption event at Studio 904, a very nice hair salon on Mercer Island. I love the way these things work - basically the people who are fostering the various dogs bring them out and show them off in the hopes that just the right person will fall in love with them. Most of the dogs at this event were rescued puppy mill dogs on death row who are getting their first chances to be around people and see what the world outside a tiny cage is like. It's a wonderful thing to see a previously shy, neglected dog bloom into a lively, loving friend with the help of their foster "parents". If you are looking for a new buddy to add to your family, please consider adopting a rescued dog!
