Dogs have always held a special place in our hearts at Muschlitz Photography. When we heard that the non-profit, Friends of the Shelter, has had a dramatic decrease in their financial donations and increase in medical care costs when saving the lives of sick and injured Shelter dogs at the Franklin County Dog Shelter, we wanted to find way that we could help.

Their Story

Friends of the Shelter is an all-volunteer, 501c3 non-profit organization established to fund the medical care of the sick and injured dogs at the Franklin County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center. The Franklin County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center is funded by the county budget and from funds generated through fees, such as dog licenses. However, these sources of funding are not sufficient to provide medical care for the Shelter dogs that need more than basic services.  The Friends of the Shelter was formed in 2003 to save these sick or injured--but otherwise adoptable--dogs so they can be adopted into loving, forever families.

Since early 2014, financial donations to Friends of the Shelter have decreased by over 30%, while the shelter dogs' medical care costs have increased by more than 35%--resulting in a deficit of over $35,000 and growing. This trend is not sustainable. Their savings is running out.  For the first time in their history, Friends of the Shelter will not be able to save the sick and injured Shelter dogs unless they receive immediate financial support from the community.

How You Can Help

In an effort to raise some funds for them, we have decided to dedicate our our Summer 2014 Mini Sessions, Dog Days of Summer, to our friends at Friends of the Shelter. We will be donating 20% of all mini sessions sales to Friends of the Shelter.

We have spoken to the organization and are so excited to work with them and our fundraising efforts.

To boost our fundraising potential, instead of holding the mini sessions over a weekend like most, our Dog Days of Summer Mini Sessions will be available from July 14th-August 31st. All sessions are currently done on location in the Columbus, Ohio area. We are happy to meet you at a park or at your home for your session. 
 
Anyone is welcome to schedule a mini session, regardless of whether you're a pet owner or not.
These sessions are perfect for families, children, and couples, and if you are a dog owner, you can even bring your dog to your session!
 
Not only can you gather up your loved ones and get some fresh portraits to share with your friends and family, but to display in your home, but you can contribute to a great cause! 
 
If you know of anyone sho might be interested in a summer mini portrait session, please spread the word! We want to see just how much money we can raise to support Friends of the Shelter!
