1 Year with Animal Aid

1 year ago today I had my first day volunteering at Animal Aid, and what a year it's been!

I was originally asked if I could come in every couple of weeks and mainly focus on the cats who were most in need of new photos, but within a month I was visiting every week and photographing everything! Cats, dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs - even a goat! I eventually also started photographing some of their events and the boarding, grooming and veterinary teams for brochures and such.

I haven't photographed every animal who has walked through Animal Aid's doors over the past 12 months or even most of them, but all up I have photographed at least 514 of their welfare animals! That's 331 cats, 151 dogs, 31 pocket pets and 1 goat!

Some have stuck in my memory more than others, I still remember the first dog and the first cat I met there (Bonnie and Knox!), and there have been more than a few who I would have quite happily brought home with me! Some with heartbreaking stories, some who simply stole my heart, and some who were just a pet photographers dream!

The work that Animal Aid do is simply amazing, and I'm very proud to be a part of such an invaluable organisation!
