Fundraising For Animal Recue - Professional Pet Photography In Smiths Falls

Here in Ontario, winter has hit us a little late. We are getting all the snow we lacked through December and January, just now in February and March! But no matter how much snow we have, that doesn't change the fact that Spring is coming, and with spring, comes Easter!

Some of you know, that my mother and I have recently opened our own pet store/ specialty shop - Pawz N Clawz Boutique in Smiths Falls, Ontario. For our grand opening, we were proud to welcome professional pet photographer - Kat Durant come in to the store and take pictures of everyone's pets, with ALL if the proceeds going to animal rescue. The day was a hit, and tons of fun too!

SO - with Easter coming up, we thought it would be fun to have another pet photo shoot at the store! Once again, all of the proceeds will be going to animal rescue, and hey, when it comes to fundraising for our furry and/or feathered friends - it is all worth while. We will be raising money for Mel's Farms animal rescue, as well as Feathered Haven Parrot rescue. So with that in mind, not only do I want to bring attention to our fundraising event, I would also like to take a moment to show you some of the amazing work that Kat Durant does with her pet/wildlife photos.

This photo is of a man named Eric Wadge.
Owner of Barker's Brunch RAW dog food. Located in Cardinal Ontario.
Eric was a huge part of our grand opening. We carry a wide selection of Barker's Brunch raw dog food in our store, as well as their all natural dehydrated dog treats, so he came for the day with some great giveaways, and educated everyone on RAW diets for dogs. Kat Durant was able to snap a photo of him and added his logo to it during our Valentine's day photo fundraiser. Thanks for being a good sport Eric!

This beautiful lady came by to have some photos done of her adorable dog.
Kat did a wonderful job at capturing a beautiful moment in this piece.

And some of you may recognize this gorgeous pup!
"How much is that doggie in the window?"
This is my girl Lexus. She loves to lay in the window at our store, so Kat took a great photo op, and went outside to capture Lexus as she gazed out into the world. I absolutely love how this turned out!

This was another of the gorgeous dogs who came by to have their photos taken on Valentines Day.
His red bandanna combined with the adorable red valentine monkey wrapped around his neck really made for a gorgeous photo that just pops off the screen!

I also wanted to show you a couple extra photos that were taken by the talented Kat Durant.
These last 2 had nothing to do with our store, or Valentines day, but I just had to share them. I am a huge fan of Kat's work, and am proud to have her as a close friend in my life.

I think this one has to be one of my FAV wildlife shots that she has. What an amazing moment to capture in a photo.
You can imagine the time and patience it takes to wait for that one second you have to snap such an amazing photo.

So I hope you guys didn't mind me sharing these today. If you are in the Smiths Falls, Ottawa or surrounding area, I do hope you can make it out the the store on March 26'th and help us raise money for our animal rescue friends! Stay tuned on our store's FB page to keep posted on any coming details for the event. Enjoy the rest of your Thursday, and thanks for spending part of it with us!
