Part of successful rescue work is marketing the animals well and Friendswood Animal Advocates came up with a way to catch potential adopters' attention with often overlooked animals in the shelter --- those mostly black and black and white ones. They asked me to photograph them in some fancy duds --- tutus, ties, boas, jewelry, etc. For the rest of July and possibly extended into August, the adoption fee is waived on all black, black and white, and even black and brown animals currently in the Friendswood Animal Control Facility. One of the black and white kittens below, Francesca, has already been adopted, the Boxer Clara Belle was pulled by Lone Star Boxer Rescue, and Sassy the Pomeranian was found by her owner (I know, she is not black and white, but looked so cute in her tutu!), which is another whole story about how she ended up in Friendswood from Pasadena.
