SHELTER ANIMALS A story lives behind every photo.
Since 2011, I have been a volunteer at North Central Animal Shelter, which sadly is a high kill Los Angeles City shelter. A photo is a powerful tool in saving a shelter animal’s life, but equally important in my volunteer experience is that my time at the shelter has opened my eyes to the struggles of companion animals in our city.
These photos highlight a tiny sample of the tales that have moved me in my hours at the shelter. Getting abandoned animals into a rescue organization is a dream. A loving, forever home is the true desire. Changing how animals are treated in our world is the long-term goal.
I always hope a photograph can help. Please visit the shelter's networking page.
