Keep Smilin' by TeaPhotography Keep Smilin' by TeaPhotography
Well, it was that time again... this past Friday, spending the day at The Humane Society to get the "next round" of photos for all of their various advertisements for adoption :aww:

I sometimes wish I could share all of them with you here on dA, but it would honestly be too many, and I have other subjects to share as well. :nod:

:note: I want to take this moment to THANK all the dA Affiliates of "The Shelter Project"

You have ALL been SO amazing! :rose:


This is Daisy, at The South Coast Humane Society who is available for adoption, and whose photo is going to be placed for "Pet-Of-The-Week" in the local newspapers, one of the FIVE Saturdays this December, and will appear in the humane society's petfinder.com and fb pages!

Daisy is one delightful Collie x Shepherd Mix! I had so much fun with her...
and she never stopped smiling the whole time. She is going to make an excellent companion for her new family! :heart:

That's What Friends Are For
Dionne Warwick and friends...

.... Keep smilin', keep shinin'
Knowin' you can always count on me, oh, for sure
'Cause I tell you that's what friends are for
For good times and for bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for (That's what friends are for)

On me, for sure
That's what friends are for
Keep smilin', keep shinin'

One of my VERY favourite songs from the 80's!
Am I dating myself??
I don't care, good music is good music, no matter what decade I know it from! :giggle:

Daisy is such a gorgeous dog! Reminds me of my beloved dog Asher (another Collie x Shepherd mix). I would love to adopt her but alas, it's a bit of a drive for me and I already have three collie mixes and sadly cannot take on another. Best of luck to her to find a new home! :heart:

Aww, that is sweet of you to say you wish you could adopt her... :aww:
You never know, as sometimes people do take long trips in adopting an animal they find out about in a far away place, it is one reason why I share a few of these such photos on dA.

Thanks for your wishes for Daisy, I am sure she'll find a good home soon!
She's great! And I wish you the best with your own doggies! :heart:

I actually have taken trips to Yakima, WA to get two of my dogs. I'm actually trying to spread the word for their wonderful rescue as there are many wonderful dogs there that are looking for homes. I actually plan on sending them a care package in the next week.

Sadly, I just cannot travel to where Daisy is for familial reasons and the fact that I cannot afford another long trip's worth of gasoline. I am so glad you post these photos here to help adopt these animals. It is wonderful work and I'd love to do that myself. Alas, I do not live close to that particular rescue and there aren't any others in my general vicinity that want people to help like that. Believe me, I have asked and I have brought a portfolio to show.

You're welcome! In fact, if you wouldn't mind telling me when she is adopted, that would make me feel good. It takes a special person to adopt a collie mix and I hope that she finds that special person. I have raised collie mixes for the past four years and I think they are the greatest dogs in the world! Again, I'd love to adopt her but the likelihood of that happening is unfortunately slim. And it's especially upsetting because her adoption includes her spay and I suppose vaccinations. The adoption fee is also at a price we can afford. I can try to talk to the family though! Even if someone was willing to meet us halfway, that may raise the likelihood.

Thank you very much! I greatly appreciate it! And thank you so much for the :+fav:'s! Oh, I also took the liberty to read your journal. I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved Melodi. I greatly understand the feeling of losing a beloved companion. My condolences go to you and your family. :hug:

Thank you for sharing all of this with me... :heart:

I want you to know I was not being serious to travel that far to adopt a dog, so no worries. :aww:

It is rare that people can or do actually do that, though it does happen from time to time. :aww:

But I know that there are people in my same state who watch me, and even that can help spread the awareness...

Yes, so very many dogs here in need of adoption as well, and even MORE of cats.
:no:

It's likely the same everywhere that there is a facility.

I am happy I work at one of the best types, too...

Oh and I will try to remember to tell you when Daisy is adopted...

I check often with the humane society, or their website, so that I can update the ones I have shared here...

I actually take a TON more photos of their animals for the news papers here and websites for adoption, than what I can actually post here on dA, just cause it would be tooooo much, and I have other subjects to share.

Awwwwww... and thank you for your sweet words of kindness about our 16 year old Beagle baby Malori.. that was kind of you. :huggle:

You're welcome! :D

Okay! :D

It is indeed a rare event.

That's good to know. I think that's the problem I am facing with spreading to word on the Yakima rescue. There's not a not of people in my state (I live in WA state btw) that watch me.

I know. There are so many dogs and there's probably three times as many cats as there are dogs in shelters and rescues. I'd love to adopt more, but I already have my three dogs and I have five cats with my mother and two with my grandmother. I just do not have the finances to take on anymore. So I donate money (especially to the local humane society and the rescue in Yakima) and now I am starting care packages.

Probably.

I thank you for taking the time to let me know when Daisy's adopted. I appreciate it.

I completely understand. The ones you post here are great and I am sure that the others that you advertise in other places are just as great! But I understand that there are other subjects to share. I'm the same way. :)

You're most welcome! I know it is hard when a dear pet passes on. :glomp:

Anyway, thanks! :heart:

Well, you never know... sometimes it is hard to gauge their breeds, though they try their best to decide... but it's not a guarantee. Maybe she is a sheltie mix, however, one thing is certain:

She is a cutie mix! :lol:
