I was at Animal Haven this week. I photographed they latest rescues, including some very memorable faces. Some of them are facing serious health issues, so I am keeping my paws crossed that everything will turn out ok.

Hero captured my heart (as he did for many others who read his story). This German Shapherd mix is 12 years old. Once he rescued his family from a home fire. They abandoned him at the city shelter for financial reasons. It was so painful to see him at Animal Haven. He is surrounded by love but you could see in his eyes that he does not understand what the hell happened.

On a more positive note, Hero turned out the be the 500th dog I photographed in a shelter, since I started about 1.5 year ago!!! Yay :)
