PHOTOGRAPHER CELEBRATES BEAUTY OF FERAL CATS

cat17One animal loving couple is on a mission to use photography to raise awareness for overlooked and marginalized animals.

Jason and Elizabeth Putsche are the founders of Photographers for Animals, a non-profit that aims to use photographs and videos to remove the invented boundary separating humans from the animal world.

Elizabeth brings her background in animal welfare to the project and Jason contributes his professional photography talents. Together they hope to make a big difference.

The first group the couple is showcasing is Community Cats, which includes stray cats (those cats who were previously owned but are now on their own) or feral cats (those cats who were born wild). “There is a stigma and perception about stray and feral cats.

They aren’t always presented in the best light,” Elizabeth tells One Green Planet. “For example when portrayed in cartoons, they are dirty and digging through garbage cans — and they can be wary of people and as nocturnal animals they just aren’t that visible.

FACEBOOK FANS SAYS HALO PET FOOD WAS CHOSEN FOR HER SON’S SERVICE DOG, CALIX

Calix1Halo Facebook Fan, Tara Matarese, shared with us the story about her son’s service dog, Calix, and how Halo natural dg food has helped them through the long journey of obtaining service dog certification. She says:

“Dear Halo,

This is Calix (it is Greek for “very handsome”). In five days I will be traveling 14 hours to Ohio to train for 14 days with him so we can test and get a service dog certification for Calix to be a service dog for my son.

We have very specific requirements to meet and a signed contract to follow to ensure we maintain certification every year. To ensure his dog eats quality food that is safe and will help prolong his life, my son has chosen Halo pet food for his new life long partner in crime.

We have been fundraising for almost two years and continue to do so. That way I can ensure my son will be able to keep his service dog. When we first started doing research your customer service department was VERY helpful in answering our questions. Plus we are both HUGE Ellen DeGeneres fans.

We wanted to stop by and show you some love now that we finally have his service dog match. We hope Halo pet food and treats keep him healthy and around for a VERY long time. Thank you.”

Tara, thank you for sharing Calix’s story and we hope he continues to live a long happy and healthy life.

MISSING DOG REUNITED WITH HIS OWNER AFTER THREE YEARS

Williams-and-Titan-lgThe holidays got brighter for a man and his dog were reunited after the pup went missing three years ago.

According to the Huffington Post, Allen Williams of Independence, Missouri was brokenhearted when his dog Titan escaped through the fence in his yard in 2011.

Frantically, Williams looked everywhere. He posted flyers, and checked in with area shelters and rescues, to no avail.

He gave up hope ever seeing Titan again. So he was shocked to get a call from the Kansas City Pet Project, saying they had Titan.

Now named Cocoa by his new family, the dog still maintained his old habit of escaping the yard, causing the family to fear for his safety and seek a new home for the dog.
