Miranda Hay, Shelter President of the Humane Society of Sullivan County in Sullivan, Indiana, participated in a recent One Picture Saves A Life workshop. Along with getting tips from celebrity pet photographer Seth Casteel, she received new software to help post stories of pets like Daisy, courtesy of GreaterGood.org and the One Picture Saves sponsors.
“I went to the shelter to take pictures of the new intake dogs that were ready for adoption,” she wrote to GreaterGood.org. “Daisy was so easy to photograph with her facial expressions and ‘head tilt’ with the squeaker! I went home and did some quick editing with Photoshop Elements and posted the pictures to our Facebook page around 9 p.m.”
That night, a family spotted Daisy’s picture and story. “They came to our shelter the next day and adopted her as soon as we opened! Daisy now has a wonderful family, including two children, two other Boxer siblings and ten acres to run and play,” said Hay. “This is a true testament that One Picture Saves a Life, and in Daisy's case, in one day!”
One Picture Saves A Life is a signature program of GreaterGood.org, supported by The Animal Rescue Site and other corporate sponsors.
