“One Picture Saves a Life Tour” recently visited the Santa Barbara Animal Care Foundation in Santa Maria, CA. Seth Casteel of Underwater Dogs and Donna Owens of John Paul Pet taught shelter workers and volunteers how to save lives through grooming and positive pet photography for the One Picture Saves a Life workshop.
Millions of dirty, scared, and disorientated pets enter shelters each year – and the photos taken are what people see when looking to adopt.
One Picture Saves a Life Tour’s mission is to provide shelter staff and volunteers with the resources to successfully groom and photograph shelter pets, helping give them the second chance they deserve.
