Now’s your chance to get your adorable pet’s picture on a calendar and help raise money for the Center for Animal Health & Welfare!  Our 2013 Pet Calendar will be celebrating the CAHW’s 100 years in operation and will feature 12 “pets of the month” as  large (~8×8″ – 8×10″) images as well as lots of smaller images of your pets throughout the calendar.  And this calendar is not just for dogs and cats….  Feel free to contact me about your favorite bunny, bird, hamster, snake, etc.!

A $250 donation gets you a professional, on-location portrait session,  your pet as one of the featured pets and a free calendar.  Or you can send me your own picture of your pet with a $30.00 donation and your pet will appear as one of our ~1×1.5″ images somewhere on the “grid” part of our calendar.  You will also receive a free calendar.  If you have already had your pet’s portrait taken by tracy bodeo photography, there is one additional option for getting your image on the calendar– please contact me for details.

So the project has begun!  Contact me now– spaces will go fast!  All photography and image submissions will be due by September.  Calendars will be printed and ready for purchase by November.  All proceeds from this project go to the animals at the Center.  For details on how to book your session or send in your own image, please email me at mail@tracybodeo.com.  Please share with friends!

Our second annual Fetching Pets Portrait Day to raise money for the Center for Animal Health and Welfare, was a great success.  Not only did we raise $2003.00 for the Center, but all the dogs who participated in the event had a terrific time.   The event took place at AVH Veterinary Group in Pen Argyl, PA.  It was a beautiful day and we had a fabulous turnout for the puppy playgroup as well as the pet portraits.  Several dogs from the Center also came for a visit with the hopes of finding their forever homes.

Here are a some of the pets who participated in our Fetching Fundraiser:
