Today I was lucky enough to meet some wonderful members of a group I belong to called Hearts Speak. ACCT Philly, the shelter I volunteer with was one of two shelters to receive a comprehensive guide and tools for improving promotional photographs of the shelter's residents. Hearts Speak hopes to secure additional funding to bring this kind of support to more shelters both nationally and internationally.
Up until today I had never met fellow members in person, we've known each other as facebook personalities and kindred spirits. What a pleasure it was to share with and learn from such generous people. I've included some behind the scenes images here in an attempt to describe how powerful and enriching the experience was. And our efforts paid off, I think the dogs really shine.
