I try to volunteer as a photographer with Orange County Animal Services as much as I can. My goal is of course to help these dogs find new homes, but at the very least, make people aware of the awesome caliber of dogs you can find at a shelter! Too often, people believe that shelter dogs are simply undisciplined rejects or violent offenders. I can personally tell you that is rarely the case. Most times, these dogs have been surrendered for other reasons or are merely strays needing a good home. I hope this gallery conveys some of the beautiful personalities I see at the shelter every time I am there!
