I know, it feels a bit early,
but actually I am very late to get these uploaded, considering I took the new photos for The Shelter Project- Holiday Themed Greeting Cards: [link]
in August, in order to give me more time THIS year, compared to last year. But since I didn't upload them sooner, I am behind just like last year! :ohmygod:

This is directly related to The Shelter Project: [link]

which aims to use the photos I take of cats and dogs, all rescues or rescued, or in some cases, still in need of being adopted,

and selling them as HOLIDAY GREETING CARDS: [link],
to raise funds that are needed for cats and dogs who are waiting for adoption,
specifically for:
The South Coast Humane Society, where I now volunteer, since Summer of 2011. :heart:

~:rose:~ Intro., Purpose of Article, History, and Info. ~:rose:~
Welcome to The TWO Year Anniversary of "The Shelter Project"-!
EVERYONE is welcome to be here, to be a part of the celebration, to learn more about this project and why it continues to be so important, and find out all about those here on dA

:note: Remember ALL of my animal images, can be purchased as prints or greeting cards, at ANY time of the year, in order to support these animals in need.

~~~~~ :rose:

So, this is Rocket, a Pit Mix. He was at The South Coast Humane Society for such a very very long time, almost a year,
that he sort of became the MASCOT for the dogs.

While that sounds cute, when a humane society animal is viewed by the public as a MASCOT, they have even LESS of a chance of being adopted!

But at the end of August, he was finally adopted! :party:

However, here he is in photo image, hoping to help all the other animals who are STILL in need! :heart:

Dedicated to ALL of the dA Affiliates of "The Shelter Project", to date:

TeaPhotography Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2012  Professional General Artist
Yes, finally! :la:

Phew, I'm so happy he found a family even if he was the mascot...I'm actually quite surprised at that! Rocket's a real handsome devil :) I love how his tongue is poking out :rofl:
TeaPhotography Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2012  Professional General Artist
Well, he is very active and all he wants to do is give you his ball over and over, so that you'll throw it...
so unless you are willing to give him TONS of attention, maybe more than the average dog, then the home wouldn't be quite right for him, but he finally did get the right home! :boogie:
Thanks! :heart:

Aww, he sounds like a friends dog we know of too...they have a long hallway, and our friend spends hours throwing the ball down the hall, the dog retrieves it, and brings it back for him to roll again lol. Yes, I was happy to hear he got the right home :) :heart:
