Why Are Great Photos Of Homeless Pets So Important?

Unfortunately, like most of the county animal shelters in Georgia, Walton County Animal Control shelter is not a no-kill shelter. When conditions get crowded and they run out of space – they are left with no choice but to euthanize some of these unwanted pets.

In an effort to save these animals, photos along with the pet’s story (if any) are emailed to animal rescue groups. Now imagine that you are a rescue group and you are receiving hundreds of photos of dogs and cats in need of rescue from shelters across Georgia. That’s why having a great photo makes such a big difference. A great photo gives you the ability to look into the eyes of that animal – almost like your making a connection with that animal. A photo that makes an impact like that is almost guaranteed to help that dog or cat find rescue over an image of one in a blurry or out-of-focus picture.

Time Is Running Out For These Dogs

Walton County Animal Control is a small, open-intake, rural shelter with a wonderful staff who truly wants these innocent souls to make it to safety. They are very willing to work with licensed rescues from Georgia, as well as from Out of State. Time is always very limited for these animals, as this shelter receives approximately 200 impounds per month!
