If Only: The Shelter Project



If Only
If only we could save them all,
But we can save LOTS more than some.
There's so much we can do to help,
And it matters to each and every one.
Words by Tea of Tea Photography © 2010


EDIT: Read Updated Info. about "The Shelter Project"

This was one of MANY of the kittens in the Kitten Play Room at the county shelter I volunteer for. There are 4 Play Rooms, one they had converted to Kittens-only.

There are 4 "suites" in the back, one of which is all kittens, there, too. Every type of area, except playrooms, have cages.

I only use my camera, about once a month, because there's not much time. Also, I rarely spend time with the kittens at all. It's the adult domestic animals that TRULY need the most attention as they have been there the longest, and in theory and usually in practice, are less likely to get a home nearly as fast as the kittens.
A couple of our cats have actually been there over a year. :hmm:

I am NOW donating portion proceeds of any prints of photos & visual poetry [ & my own professional hand-crafted greeting cards coming this Fall of 2010] depicting domestic animals, sold DIRECTLY through TEA PHOTOGRAPHY© to the local shelters.
For MORE INFO. READ in the Cat-Dog Sub-Gallery...

I am forever grateful. :heart:


[NOTE: I just wanted to say, in advance, how especially grateful for anyone's :+fav: I may receive for this image. :thanks::aww::rose: I am honoured that you would enjoy or think well enough of my work here, to :+fav: it. :nod: So I thank you :thanks: profusely, and from the bottom of my heart :heart: . And because I do realize time constraints all too well, I understand, if you are unable to also leave a comment. :aww: However, whichever you may do, [or even both! :omg: ] I genuinely appreciate it beyond measure. I need you to know this now, in case I'm not capable of doing individual thank-you's for :+fav:'s, which I've not been capable, or in case I cannot respond to each comment, either. Thanks for understanding. :thanks:
:love: And even if you just came to view! :eyes: I am also very HAPPY :D for this! :w00t: ]

We volunteer at our local shelter to help keep the adult cats and senior cats acclimated to people. Everyone goes for the kittens first, but the seniors have so much love to share, every rescue I've taken in or fostered for their forever home are adult cats:heart:
