Helping Animals in Need
In Australia around 40 per cent of dogs and 80 per cent of cats that enter pounds and shelters are euthanised because forever homes can’t be found for them.*
Animal welfare organisations work tirelessly to help animals in need and many keep their dogs, cats and other animals for as long as it takes for them to be adopted.
At Creature Focus we work with a couple of these organisations by professionally photographing their animals to increase their chances of being adopted.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank them for all that they do, in particular those that we work with: Animal Aid, Beagle Rescue Victoria, Stafford Rescue Victoria and Siberian Husky Rescue. And of course we are currently working on our Dogs of Melbourne book which is helping care for foster animals at Melbourne Animal Rescue.

Best job in the world
I think I have the best job in the world. I spend my days photographing or going through photos of beautiful animals that are loved and are part of a family. Over the seven years I have been photographing pets I have seen some wonderful examples of the human/animal bond and how much each means to the other.
That’s why I find it so hard to understand why there are so many pets that cannot find a permanent home, so when I found an opportunity to help these animals, i jumped on it and I have been very fortunate to be able to photograph some lovely Beagles for Beagle Rescue Victoria (see Denver below)and starting tomorrow I will be doing some regular photography of adoptees for Animal Aid.
The animals up for adoption with these animal rescue organisations come to them in many different ways, each of them has shown they are ready and willing to find their forever homes and so are the perfect pets. Both Beagle Rescue and Animal Aid are very careful to re-home their animals with the appropriate people to ensure it all works well.
If you are looking for a new family member, please visit a rescue organisation, you will not be disappointed.

Beagle Rescue Victoria and HeARTs Speak
It’s been a while since my last post here at the Creature Focus blog, my apologies I hope this very special blog might make up for it.
On the weekend, I had the wonderful job of photographing two beagle sisters called Abby and Macy. These two sisters are inseparable and if one is taken away the other one will cry for her, they just love each other to bits. Even though they are twins and very close, they have quite different personalities one is a smoocher and would do anything for a belly rub and the other is quite shy, but both are very friendly.
Abby and Macy are currently being cared for by foster parents and are available for adoption through Beagle Rescue Victoria – www.beaglerescuevic.org you can also find their profile at Pet Rescue – www.petrescue.com.au.
As well as the great job of photographing rescued Beagles, I have also been accepted as a member to HeARTs Speak. As noted on their website ‘HeARTs Speak was created to harness the power of art to effect social change, to connect artists with shelters and animal relief organizations, and ultimately, to save and better the lives of animals and people.’ This is a great organisation that supports animal welfare and photographers like myself who support animals in need. Please do have a look at www.heartsspeak.org
