West L.A.Shelter Dogs need a home

Here are some wonderful dogs I photographed last week. Please call the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter at (888) 452-7381 for more information. As you can see, these new photos make a big difference!

This is Hazel. Just found out she was adopted! Hurray! Mission accomplished!

This is Casper, the friendly dog. A0936967. He is less than two years old and has super cool eyes! Casper is deaf, so if you like to rock out to loud music, he won't mind a bit. Also - he may not know his own name, but will surely come to you if you wave treats in the air! ;)

Bones is a 2 year old pit-bull terrier. His interests include colorful collars and mona lisa smiles. A0945595.
