Calling All Rescue Dogs In NJ!

abandoned model call

If you have a pet that was adopted from a rescue after being abandoned by their family or left to fend on their own – this is your chance to tell their story!

I am looking to create a special series of images called “Abandoned No More“.

I want this campaign to speak to people and show that rescue dogs are not “dispensable” and can have a rough start and become a great family member.

There is no compensation or fee to be a part of this campaign – all you need is a rescue dog and an hour of your time to have a mini-photo shoot to capture the perfect image!

The session will be fun and done at a location not far from your home! I am looking at forest like parks and run down buildings or locations for this series – so if you have ideas please share them in the form below.

You will be gifted 3 digital prints as a thank you for your time – and of course my undying gratitude for helping me try and make a difference in a creative way! (I will email the best 3 images via a download link approximately 2-3 weeks after the session. Images can only be used for personal use and full copyright is retained by me.)

Session Details

  • Maximum of 2 dogs per session
  • Dogs MUST be from/with a rescue – they can be in their forever home or a foster home since either way we know they are in good homes and will never be “alone” again!
  • Series name and details will not be released until a formal announcement is made on FB after the first session is complete!
  • Pet owner must remain for the entire shoot and assist as needed and be 21 or over
  • Please bring treats and water for your dog
  • Session will take about 60 minutes max
  • Campaign sessions will take place between July 1 – August 30, 2020 and will either be in the early morning (8am – 10am) or early evening (6pm – 8pm) to keep the dogs as cool as possible.
  • Several of the sessions will be held at a historic location in Wallpack Township NJ – so we are specifically looking for people that would be interested in doing a session here!

If you have additional questions – just ask! You can call me at 732.241.5365 or send an email to jill.caren@gmail.com. Thank you for helping me make a difference!

Other model calls will happen throughout the year so stay tuned! You can follow https://www.facebook.com/charitypaws on Facebook to get more information and updates or visit CharityPaws and sign up for the newsletter!
