IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO SAVE A DOG
THE BIG MISSION: SUPPORTING RESCUES IN MEXICO
Not every dog has its day, nor do millions of dogs and cats have a home, or shelter, or even a fighting chance of survival.
This is particularly true in rural areas where stray dog and cat overpopulation has become so desperate that in many towns street dogs out-number entire human populations.
Read how six rescues are working together and have formed a village to help save as many of the stray and street dogs as possible.
THE POWER OF THE PHOTOGRAPH
THE BIG MISSION: VISIT TO ANIMAL RESCUE ORGANIZATIONS IN MEXICO
Dogs I Meet has a simple, obsessive philosophy: Every dog I meet has a tale to share with the world.
In January 2019, I traveled to Mexico to photograph and meet the dedicated animal rescuers and the dogs in their care to capture their tales.
I was determined to use the mission to generate awareness of their remarkable work and accomplishments in fighting the stray dog crisis in Mexico.
SAVING THE DOGS OF PUERTO RICO
THE BIG MISSION: GIVE THEM A CHANCE
A few months ago I traveled with Paola Anderson - the founder of Global United Foundation - to Puerto Rico.
We went to assess the scope of the problem of stray dogs, forge new relationships and meet with Representatives of the Municipalities of Guayanilla and Yauco to discuss how they can support Global’s work.
This is the story behind the mission and the stories of the dogs and people I met.
PAWFECT LIFE RESCUE
THE BIG MISSION: FINDING A HOME FOR SAINT BERNARD AND HER 12 PUPPIES
Dogs I Meet is a big supporter of Pawfect Life Rescue and the amazing work they do in saving and finding homes for countless dogs. They are a dedicated network of volunteers whose mission is to rescue stray dogs and place them in responsible loving homes. After the Douglas,MA police and animal control rescued a dozen 5 week old Saint Bernard puppies along with their mom and dad they contacted Pawfect Life Rescue to arrange for foster care, veterinary care and coordinate the adoption.
PLAYA DEL CARMEN
THE BIG MISSION: GIVE THEM A VOICE
In August 2017, I traveled to Playa del Carmen, Mexico to photograph the Vidas 2017 Spay/Neuter Clinic. There, I got to know several different animal rescue organizations involved with the Vidas Spay/Neuter Clinic.
I was in awe of the passionate people, the robust rescue community, and the way they worked together, tirelessly to help dogs and cats.
At this one clinic alone, 1500 cats and dogs were spayed and neutered. Day after day, this work continues, with zero praise and minimal funding. I wanted to give them a voice, so I decided to create a Dogs I Meet Mission to help them.
KEEP UP TO DATE
Dogs I Meet is on a mission to document the inside world of animal rescues and organizations dedicated to helping improve the lives of animals. Led by a vision that each photograph has the power to educate and inspire animal advocacy.
