A picture speaks a thousand words, and Kelly Richardson’s Images speak volumes for the animal rescue community.
Our Rescue Photo Program: One Photo Saves
Kelly Richardson is committed toward helping the animal rescue community save lives. Almost all of the animals you see on this site have been saved by a Central Florida Animal Rescue Organization. They have come to Kelly through her rescue group photo program, One Photo Saves. This program provides rescue groups with complimentary professional photos of animals that are seeking adoption. The adorable, creative, friendly, heartwarming photographs boost rescue adoption rates, literally saving animals’ lives and create space in a pet foster volunteer’s home for more rescue animals.
“As a result of the beautiful pictures that Kelly takes, our adoptions almost doubled from 2014 to 2015, allowing us to help other cats that need homes. We have had many adopters remark on how they were drawn to the cats because of the photos.” -Lisa M., *Cats-Can, Inc. Adoption Coordinator and Volunteer.
Kelly professionally photographs and promotes rescue animals at no cost to their caretakers – completely free to shelters, rescue groups and foster organizations in Central Florida. She works directly with rescue group staff to photograph as many pets as possible at adoption events and shelters every Saturday. Kelly processes the images, provides web ready files to the rescue for their websites. Kelly also shares those images via Kelly Richardson Images Facebook Page and Studio Pets Twitter Page.
On her website blog, Kelly jumps at the opportunity to educate the public with her insights about rescues and shelters. She hopes that everyone is aware that once an animal reaches a shelter, their days are numbered. “Over 3 million discarded dogs and cats are euthanized each year in the United States. Anything that can be done to get them into homes is well worth the effort. ” -kr
Kelly Richardson is based out of the Orlando Area, Florida, USA. But her LuvKelly pet images have been used on pet products, packaging, cards, calendars, greeting cards, gift bags, websites and publications around the world. Her mission is two fold. First she hopes to increase adoptions of homeless animals by offering free professional photography to shelters, foster and rescue organizations. Second, she hopes to build community awareness for homeless and free-roaming pets, shelter animals, and rescue animals by licensing their images worldwide. YOU can help Kelly make a difference. By licensing Kelly Richardson’s LuvKelly rescue pet images or scheduling a pet photo session, you are helping to save the lives of homeless animals. Proceeds of all licensing sales go towards funding our rescue group photo program, One Photo Saves.
