If you’re a pet owner, you know that a pet is more than just a random animal roaming around your house. They are your friend and companion, they know when you’re feeling sad, upset, or scared; they motivate you and love you without judgment. Their mere presence is therapeutic.
My love for animals and intense desire to help other people prompted the launch of The Raindance Photography Pet Division, so that everyone can have beautiful heirloom portraits of their beloved fur babies too!
I’ve always been a pet owner, and as such, I spend enough time wandering around PetSmart… If you’ve ever been to PetSmart, you’ve probably seen those cages full of sweet kitties in the Adoption Room, who stare soulfully into your eyes, just tugging at the heart strings. Last year, I held this fundraiser in support of Street Cats (one of the amazing rescues that has cats for adoption at PetSmart.) I was so impressed with how they run their organization, how clean their facility is, how devoted all of their volunteers are, and how well-cared for their cats are.
I am excited to be holding the 3rd Annual all-day mini event devoted to Pets only! Every single penny raised will be donated to the Street Cats Rescue to help them care for all of the furry friends who are currently waiting for their forever homes.
If you have a pet who would love to have their photo taken on Saturday November 24th, 2018, between 10am-5pm here at the Raindance Studio, please CLICK HERE and fill out the form to book!
Cost is only $50 per pet (each pet receives their own 10 minute timeslot with digital file)
Sessions are 10 minutes in length
You will receive 1 digital file of your choice via digital download within 2 weeks of your session.
Street Cats Rescue is currently in need of financial donations as well as donations of the following items:
If you bring in one of these items in addition to your $50 Creative Fee, you will automatically receive an 8×10 deep matte print of your pet as well! Also, anyone who participates in this event can enter to win a mini family photo session of their family in the Spring! So come on out, support Street Cats Rescue, receive an awesome heirloom portrait of your fur-baby and be entered to win a family mini session! I can’t wait to work with your fur babies!
Why did I choose Street Cats again this year? Because they’re awesome, they work tirelessly for the benefit of these animals, and they deserve our help. Here’s why…
“Street Cats Rescue is a non- profit organization with registered charity status serving Simcoe County and surrounding areas. We are staffed 100% by volunteers, receive no government funding and rely solely on fundraising, donations and community support to continue our work. All money raised goes directly back to the care and comfort of the cats i.e. veterinary bills, rent, heat, hydro, food, supplies, etc.
Street Cats Rescue has a “no kill” policy. We advocate humane euthanasia only for terminally ill animals and/or animals where quality of life has been severely compromised with no hope of improvement.
Street Cats consists of physical shelter as well as a large network of foster homes. In both areas we utilize techniques and protocols that keep illness and stress levels to a minimum. We strive to get to know each cat’s unique personality which makes finding the right adoptive home that much easier. All cats are vet checked, treated for parasites and illness as needed. Prior to adoption each cat is vaccinated, fixed and microchipped. We advocate pediatric spay/neuter so even kittens are fixed prior to adoption.
Our adoption screening process consists of an application/interview. Our adoption protocols are designed to “put the right cat into the right home.” We are not driven by adoption numbers but rather we endeavour to ensure each adoption is a “good” one.
Street Cats also advocates and practices TNR (trap, neuter, return) rescue methods for feral cats.”

This years’ set is “Suede Grey” (pictured directly below), which is a nice neutral, warm grey that will work well with just about every fur colour!
