Lick For Life
Last month, I celebrated valentine's day by photographing beautiful dogs at Ottawa's Bark and Fitz location on Richmond Rd. in Westboro. I wanted to capture the dogs in mid-lick! What a hoot!
Along with the photo shoot was an awareness campaign about an organization in Kingston called Lifestream www.animalbloodbank.ca
Here is a brief explanation of their organization taken from their web site:
"Veterinarians are keenly aware of the shortage of companion animal blood supplies.
LifeStream Animal Blood Bank team members are passionate about animal welfare.
Our team is willing to do whatever it takes to promote public awareness of veterinary transfusion medicine and the magic of animal blood donations.
The mission of the LifeStream Animal Blood Bank is to provide quality blood and blood products for veterinary transfusion medicine.
We collect blood donations from volunteer canine blood donors." ~lifestream
The plan is to visit a couple of Toronto area Bark & Fitz locations for more Lick for Life photo shoots. Stay tuned for more info in the near future! ~Sue
