Thank you so much for doing this!...Our crazy dog Olive was absolutely full of "personality"...You're wonderful to help with this cause!
Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) September 13, 2011
The Dog Days 2011 fundraiser this last Saturday proved to be a success for local photographer, Linnea Lenkus. Pet owners and enthusiasts showed true spirit and generosity by bringing their furry friends for a photo op and a donation for the local animal shelter. Their kindness will help prevent euthanasia by donating to programs that educate people about caring for their pets, adoptions, and spaying and neutering.
"My back is sore today, but it is well worth it. I was in such wonderful company yesterday in my Pasadena studio. I saw many amazing dogs and loving owners. So many dogs were so cute, some were well-behaved, some were full of personality, and others told a story with their eyes. I ended the day with a lovely rescue dog whose owner told me 'wasn't going to last long," Linnea says.
This event was the first one of three.The next event opens at 9:30 am in Irvine September 17th, and then in Long Beach September 24th. Session times are limited and are available by appointment only. Call the main office to set up an appointment in the studio of your choice 562-981-8900.
Portrait sessions are $25 and include:
- 15 minutes with photographer Linnea Lenkus
- One 5x7 print
- 10% of additional prints and products ordered will also be donated to the local animal shelter.
*You may upgrade your print size with a larger donation or if you provide a receipt of your rescued dog, you will automatically be upgraded. Your rescue will have the opportunity to be featured in the upcoming Linus Gallery Exhibits.
