I found these old photographs from a trip to an animal shelter in Cherry Hill, New Jersey that were taken back in 2010. The sadness feelings were long gone, but they can back this morning, in full force twelve years later. My mission as a photog was to photograph life, and I feel I have achieved that goal in this sad story. These dogs break my heart again, much more than they did in 2010.
I don’t sell everything I shoot, photography is not my side hustle. It was my life, where am I going ? I’m not sure. TBD
My Thoughts from 2010
My trip to AWA has me volunteering at the shelter. I felt the need to be closer to the animals, today I was able to meet people and break a few rules and share some love with some great dogs. I hope you like my pictures, I didn’t have full access.

Another day at the shelter.
Can I come home with you?
Can I come home with you? I don’t bite.
Touching and licking me, a real sense of unconditional love.
