Get YOUR fetching pet on our 2013 Pet Calendar celebrating the 100 Year Anniversary of the Center for Animal Health and Welfare! Pet photography by Lehigh Valley portrait photographer Tracy Bodeo

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!

Dog of the Week: “Shem”; at the Center for Animal Health and Welfare; Easton pet portraits by tracy bodeo photography

Come visit the wonderful Shem at the Center for Animal Health & Welfare in Easton, PA– www.healthyanimalcenter.org .  Shem is an older guy but still lots of fun!  He loves being out and about and rolling around in the grass.  He is very friendly, sweet, and walks well on a leash.  Shem often takes a squeaky toy along with him on his walks.  It’s funny to watch him throw his ball down and roll on top of it in the grass.  Then he will snatch it back up and start walking again.  And as you can see, Shem has a great smile!  Shem could be the dog for you….

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:

Meet handsome Rowdy- available for adoption at Petco through the Center for Animal Health and Welfare; Lehigh Valley cat, pet portraits.

UPDATE: Rowdy has been ADOPTED!!

Rowdy is still waiting for his forever home at the Petco on 25th St. in Easton, PA.  Rowdy is a sweet, calm cat (as opposed to what you might think by his name!), who loves to have his head scratched.  Please come meet Rowdy or one of his many friends that are waiting at the Center for Animal Health and Welfare.

Knick is an adorable young (~3 months) little male.  He loves being held and pet.  Muggs has been at the shelter for several years now and no one knows why.  He is handsome, incredibly sweet and loves attention.  Come meet these wonderful, adoptable cats.

Pet of the Week- “AJ” the rabbit; adopt him at the Center for Animal Health & Welfare; pet portraits by tracy bodeo photography

“AJ” is a young (~7 month old), large, male rabbit who was brought in with his siblings.  He is very sweet and doesn’t mind being pet or held.  Rabbits can be litter box trained and make nice pets when given the love and attention they deserve.

Cats from the Center for Animal Health and Welfare can now be seen at Petco in Easton.

In an effort to get more of the many, many cats from the Center for Animal Health and Welfare seen and adopted, Petco on 25th Street in Easton, PA, will now be housing several cats from the Center.  There were 4 cats brought to Petco last Sunday and two (Tootsy and Jonah) have already been adopted.  Hadley and Esky (both young females) are still waiting.  Please come and visit them (or their many friends at the Center) if you are considering bringing a new cat into your life.

Meet Rexx, the adorable 30+ lb., 12 week old St. Bernard puppy!  This sweet (and super soft) dog was very well-behaved during his puppy session.  We were able to get some fun outdoor shots as well as formal images.  I look forward to working with him again in the future, when he will probably be close to 200 lbs.!
