Firefighters and Shelter Animals

A Sneak Peek of The Photo Shoots For The New Rochelle Humane Society 2012 Calendar

April 14, 2011 by Klara Hanincova

It was my friend and a volunteer at the New Rochelle Humane Society, Carol Marinaccio, that approached me a couple of months back with a great idea to create a 2012 calendar that would feature animals from the New Rochelle Humane Society with local firefighters. Calendars with shelter animals are a great way to raise money and promote animal adoption, but what is so great about this one is that it goes beyond that. Carol’s idea of approaching firefighters from towns that contract with the New Rochelle Humane Society will also help the shelter to connect with the local communities of these towns and spread the word about its rescue work.

I am very excited to be a part of this project. I love to photograph animals and now I have an opportunity to photograph them with the most selfless, special people that are driven by a passion for helping others and are ready to pay the highest price to keep their communities safe.

I am so looking forward to it! I promise you that I will update my blog after each photo shoot with a selection of photographs and a little info about the participating firefighters and shelter animals.

Would you like to know whether firefighters from your town are participating in the New Rochelle Humane Society 2012 calendar? Stay tune to find out … :)

First and second photo shoot is scheduled for this upcoming Friday and Saturday. Yippee!!!
