This past Saturday, I had the privilege of volunteering with Companion Pet Rescue, a wonderful organization that rescues dogs from high-kill shelters and brings them to Connecticut in hopes of adoption. They’re located in Southbury, but they also have adoption events all over CT.
They, along with several other rescue groups, had trucks full of hopeful dogs, just waiting for their forever families. By the time I got there, several people were already surrounding the CPR van.
I was the “official” dog photographer for the day, trying to snap as many photos as I could.
It was hard to get them to stand still, but thankfully their personality and overall adorableness (that’s my new word) came through. Some were camera-shy, others were curious and kept wanting to put their face towards the lens.
Every dog had a colorful bandana on, that said “Adopt me!” or “Pick Me!” It made it easier to identify which dogs were up for adoption.
No matter how many events I volunteer for, it is so amazing to see these organizations come together and work so incredibly hard to get these dogs a loving home. CPR dogs is one of many dog rescue groups that gives dogs a voice.
Timmy was one of my favorites. He’s 24 pounds, but it’s all full of love. He was quiet, friendly, and just wanted to be cuddled. I can’t imagine he’ll be adopted before too long.
These are just a few of the hundreds of dogs they have for adoption. To view CPR’s adoptable dogs and other information, visit their website here.
