Lucky and Ty find families

Two of my long-suffering buddies at the Humane Society of Skagit Valley have been adopted! Lucky, as in L is for Lucky, and Ty, seen here in this photo by Tracey Salazar.

Salazar and another photographer, Lara Grauer, are working with The Dugan Foundation and Pawsitive Alliance to spread the word about dogs who keep getting overlooked in shelters. Both Lucky and Ty were featured recently, and both were adopted within days!

Lucky and Ty also were both sponsored in a newspaper ad that ran after the Humane Society’s Black Cat Auction. At the fundraiser, there were keychains with pictures of all the adoptable dogs and cats for sponsors to choose from. I was torn between Lucky and Ty, and almost went with Lucky, because of his disadvantage as a pit bull type dog, but then I overheard a man say he was looking especially for a pit bull to sponsor, so I handed him Lucky’s keychain and sponsored Ty myself.

What this tells me is that exposure gets dogs adopted. And great photos are essential. However Ty and Lucky’s new families came to find them … WHOO-HOO!!

  1. That’s fantastic, Kari! Lucky and Ty both look like sweet boys and I’m sure they’ll fill their adopter’s hearts and homes with joy!
