The pet loving community turned out on a sunny fall day in Santa Barbara to celebrate their four-legged companions and get those in need of adoption to a loving home. The Wags n' Whiskers event is the largest adoption festival on the central coast and is put on by the amazing non-profit C.A.R.E. 4Paws whose mission is to reduce pet overpopulation and keep animals out of shelters. The event featured vendors with the latest pet products and wellness tips, low cost vaccines with Project PetSafe and animals up for adoption from several shelters — over 31 dogs and cats found their forever homes!

Over the holidays I had the pleasure of photographing some pups in need of homes for Care-4-Paws, with the hope that their close-ups would lead to their adoption. I am excited to know that one of these sweethearts has now become a jet-setting doggie. With a name like Paris this pitty was born to travel the world, or at least across the United States. This cutie has settled where the buffalo (dogs) roam free, in Montana with her new canine brother and kitty cat sister. Much love to Shadow's Fund for helping Paris get adopted. Shadow's Fund is an amazing organization that rescues senior and "pit bull" type dogs from public shelters, operating a no kill sanctuary in Santa Barbara.
