    Great Pet Pics: On Their Level

Rather than standing over the pet and looking down on him or her, try bringing the camera viewer eye-level with the pet to help create a much more natural shot. This eye-level approach helps create great photos for all pets, but is especially helpful when photographing small pets. Kneeling …

    An Adoption for All Holidays

    If the motto of the great salesman is “always be closing” than we can take a page (or at least two words) off of that and make the animal rescue motto “always be adopting.” This means that you should not let a single holiday slip by without using it as a way to promote your adoptable pets.

    Human Walking Program

    There is a lot of debate over how well the ‘sad animal’ advertisements work. Do people respond better when you tug at their sympathy, or do they want ads that make them feel good?

    Homeless Dogs Takeover IKEA Showrooms

What Home for Hope did was print up life-sized cutouts of dogs that were available for adoption from the shelters they work with. Then in collaboration with IKEA, they placed the cutouts in IKEA store showrooms …
