Group Info

I know that there are a lot of groups for animal photography out there, but lots of groups decline photos that they believe aren't good enough. Well, this group believes that every photographer, whether it be amateur or professional, is a growing artist, and so this group will accept any of your photos! If you would like to join, the request is automatically accepted! There are a few rules though, so please follow them and have fun! I'd also like to say that this group is in full support of S.A.F.E (Saving Animals From Extinction), so I will include an awareness gallery for that, which will not have to be photos as long as it's sending everyone the message of how crucial it is to help our planet's endangered species!

Group Rules! Please Read!~

:bulletgreen: PLEASE no photos of animal abuse or death!

:bulletgreen: This is a photography group, so please try to only submit photos! There are two exceptions, and those are the Endangered Species Awareness Folder, which is for deviations that promote the well being of our planet's endangered species! Please submit anything that will emphasize how important it is to help and preserve the animals of the Earth! Secondly, since I hate to turn away submissions, there is ONE folder for other animal artwork aside from photography, but there is only a one deviation a day limit on this folder.

:bulletgreen: There is a limit of 5 deviations per folder a day, just so people watching the group don't get flooded by messages. I think that's a fair amount for now. As the group grows, the limit may change, but I will inform all members if that happens.

:bulletgreen: There is a limit of 2 deviations for the Featured folder each day, which you should submit the photos you are most proud of! These are also automatically accepted. You know which photos are your best, and you should be able to show them off proudly! :D Also, I have now added an "Admin's Choice" Featured folder, where I will add photos that were submitted to the basic folders that really catch my eye and I feel should be recognized. :3 Only I can submit to this special folder.

:bulletgreen: Please be kind and respectful to all fellow members!

:bulletgreen: Deviations are automatically accepted, but I will be checking to make sure there isn't anything inappropriate!

:bulletgreen: Please ONLY submit photos that have an animal in them.

:bulletgreen: Please keep in mind that you MUST be a member to submit! If you feel you're getting overwhelmed with the deviations from the group (I'm well aware of how that feeling is), just edit your watch on the group and uncheck the "Deviations" box, though it is nice if you were to look through the galleries during free time and support other members of the group! Have fun! Paw Print (Rainbow) - F2U! by Drache-Lehre

Also, a huge thank you to WagmoreBarkless, a member who's point donations have made it possible for the group to hold contests, and possibly become a super group in the near future! Please check out his gallery and give him the support he deserves! :heart:

First of all, a HUGE apology for being gone for so long! But I'm determined to stay this time. A lot of things have happened and I just wasn't able to concentrate any of my time on dA and on this group. ShadowpwnLord9999 and I finally got married. We actually met on dA 12 years ago! Now that things have settled after the wedding, I really wanted to come back here. I've missed dA and this group, and I want to bring it back to life. So anything that needs to managed here will be fixed soon and I will be on frequently again. If you need to contact me with any concerns about the group, please feel free to!~ Thank you to all of you who stayed in this group all of this time! And welcome to any new members that joined in my absence! :heart:
Hey everyone, I'm so sorry I've been gone yet again. This time, it was my own choice because I couldn't handle seeing any animal photos honestly. ShadowpwnLord9999 and I lost our baby girl, Pepper, to a rare feline disease... It's been a while now, it happened on the 24th of July, but the grief has all but consumed us, especially Cory, since Pepper was his familiar and they shared a super close bond. It was devastating to me too obviously, because since Cory moved here with me, Pepper was the first cat that really felt like OUR baby. She was born after he moved here, we kept her healthy while her mommy cat recovered from surgery just a day after having her, and she grew up as our baby. She was just so special, like she was really Cory and I's child... She had just turned a year old in March... Here's a couple photos of her:

.:Our Little Pepper:. by Shadouge4eva


.:Curious Little Pepper:. by Shadouge4eva


We had believed that she had somehow gotten pregnant, although we both knew that there was no way because we were keeping her in one room away from our unfixed male until he was neutered. Her belly was huge and she was so small, and so I asked a friend of mine in PETA if they could go ahead and abort her "kittens" because I didn't think she could survive a pregnancy. Well, the day came, and four of our unfixed kitties went to be spayed and neutered, but I got a phone call around 2 that afternoon from my friend, saying that the vet was about to perform the surgery on Pepper, but to everyone's surprise, there were no babies on the ultrasound... She had contracted FIP, a parasitic disease that develops from a virus known as the Coronavirus. It affects less than 5% of cats, and 98% of cats that get it are under two years of age. No other cat in my home got the parasite... Just Pepper... It's incurable once the virus develops into FIP, and the vet recommended putting her down so that she would not have to suffer because she only had a couple weeks, tops, left to live... Of course, I said yes, and I don't even want to think about the phone call or telling Cory afterwards... She was brought back to be buried here, though it took us days to finally go visit the grave because we were so consumed with grief. Cory shut down almost completely. To say the least, it was one of the worst things that we've gone through, especially Cory, who had never lost such a close fur baby...

But, we're recovering, though it still hurts to think about her. I'm back on here now, and I'm sorry I couldn't bring myself to get on sooner than this.

I would like for people to be aware of the disease Pepper passed from though, so I will put a link about it below. If you have a cat under the age of two, keep a look out for symptoms so you can catch it before it's incurable. Like I said before though, it's a RARE disease that only FIVE PERCENT of cats get, so don't get yourself paranoid, I just want people to know more about it so that others will not have to share the same pain that Cory and I have. We're almost positive our other cat, Midnight, picked up the virus at the vets office when she went for an abscess, and Pepper somehow caught it and was somehow in that 5% that developed FIP...

Here is a link to explain the virus and the parasitic disease contracted from it:  www.petmd.com/cat/conditions/i…

Sorry again guys for being gone. I'm back again, I just need some time to heal. Thanks to everyone who understands.
