If Only: The Shelter Project by TeaPhotography If Only: The Shelter Project by TeaPhotography
If Only
If only we could save them all,
But we can save LOTS more than some.
There's so much we can do to help,
And it matters to each and every one.
:heart:

EDIT: Read Updated Info. about "The Shelter Project"
HERE: teaphotography.deviantart.com/…


This was one of MANY of the kittens in the Kitten Play Room at the county shelter I volunteer for. There are 4 Play Rooms, one they had converted to Kittens-only.

There are 4 "suites" in the back, one of which is all kittens, there, too. Every type of area, except playrooms, have cages.

I only use my camera, about once a month, because there's not much time. Also, I rarely spend time with the kittens at all. It's the adult domestic animals that TRULY need the most attention as they have been there the longest, and in theory and usually in practice, are less likely to get a home nearly as fast as the kittens.
A couple of our cats have actually been there over a year. :hmm:

:megaphone: THIS is the ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE FIRST PART of "THE SHELTER PROJECT", SO...
PLEASE NOTE
:
I am NOW donating portion proceeds of any prints of photos & visual poetry [ & my own professional hand-crafted greeting cards coming this Fall of 2010] depicting domestic animals, sold DIRECTLY through TEA PHOTOGRAPHY© to the local shelters.
For MORE INFO. READ in the Cat-Dog Sub-Gallery...

All I can say is, gods bless you and your shelter for doing such a wonderfully kind thing! Beautiful work of a beautiful heart. And beautiful animals!
I just rescued an adult "problem child" from S.A.F.E. Team, a shelter that saves animals from SPCA's "death row," where she's been for close to a year (and who knows for how long at the SPCA prior to that). She is a menace and a total trouble - and my sweetest little joy! I only wish more people knew how much happiness and joy can a cat bring into their lives!
I am now drawing some pieces to donate to the silent auction fundraiser for the from which I adopted my kitty. Since I'm not a photographer, I would really love it if someone was kind enough to let me use their pictures as reference for my drawings. This kitten looks VERY much like mine. May I request your permission to draw from your images? I solemnly promise that any proceeds IN THEIR ENTIRETY will go to help the SAFE Team's animals.

Such a sweet little cat.

I hate to think of all the animals that need a good home, and those who are mistreated. It's so sad.

Living in a one-bedroom flat (apartment), and working all day, I couldn't have any kind of pet. It would be too cruel. It would be left alone all day without anyone to take care of it, and no company. I find that disgusting. It is nothing short of solitary confinement, and mental torture. :(

Aw, yes, thank you for your very kind comment.
:aww:

And of course you are so right about a very small flat, etc., ...
it is so nice of you to realize that. :rose:

Though it is also true, that there are other ways to help shelter animals besides actually adopting one for yourself.

So there are always those types of options.

Thanks again! :heart:
