I really love photographing animals that typically have a difficult time getting adopted. It's heartbreaking to see cats and dogs overlooked by potential adopters just because of their age, especially animals that have been waiting at the shelter for months. My go-to trick for getting cats adopted is to photograph them with their tongues sticking out. I find that people see those pictures online and come into the shelter seeking that specific animal because he or she looks silly and fun. I decided to do the same thing with senior dogs by giving them peanut butter. The dogs look happy and full of life and their photos make them stand out from the other dogs on the shelter's website. The series was covered by the local news on television -- my first time seeing my photos on TV -- and online.
