On Saturday, August 10, Georgia SPCA hosted a Wizard of Oz themed photoshoot, where both pets and owners alike can come in dressed as their favorite Wizard of Oz Characters. The purpose of the photoshoot was to raise money for the shelter and bring awareness to the public about their upcoming fundraiser. There's No Place Like Home, is Georgia SPCA Fourth Annual Benefit Bash, to be be held on September 7 at the Gwinnett Center Ballroom. The photoshoot at the shelter raised $745.00 (which will be doubled, thanks to the "Matching Donation Challenge"); $425.00 from the pictures and $320.00 in donations from selling merchandise and Emily's beautiful OZ themed cupcakes! As an added bonus, one of the families who came for pictures also adopted a puppy from SPCA while they were there.
This dog is like a gentle giant. He is so kind and well behaved. You can tell by looking at this photo the love the owner and the dog have for each other.
Wizard of Oz pet costumes. You named them, we have them!
The Bluebird Kids with Charlie Yaeger. He is a 97 years young retired aircraft engineer. When I first met him, he was telling me about how he participated in WWII and he then says "google me". I was shocked, google you? Hmmm. Will do, and so I did and this is what I found. Check out this video of Charlie for Nissan! Who knew Charlie was a you-tube sensation ;)
This family was so fun to photograph. Their pug was a ball of energy and he wouldn't stay still for one second.
They also brought their cat, which by looking at the picture you can tell he was not enjoying the "family photoshoot" a tiny bit lol!
No photoshoot can be complete without cupcakes! Thanks Emily for making these. My little ones ate quite a few ;)
Georgia SPCA young volunteers. They are awesome! They work as hard as any adult at the shelter. Way to go guys! You rock!
Photography for the event was provided by professional photographer and Georgia SPCA volunteer, George Aubrey.
