Shelter Me Photography (SMP) invites you to join our 2017 Coast-to-Coast Workshop Tour.


Each year, an estimated 7.6 million pets enter the shelter system in America. Nearly 70% never make it out alive. Shelter Me Photography is committed to saving homeless pets by changing society's perception of them with pictures that touch hearts, change minds and save lives.


Shelter Me Photography (SMP), is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based out of Lakewood, Colorado. Our mission is to improve society’s perception of shelter pets and increase adoption rates using professional photography and education. We accomplish this by providing free, on-site professional photography and teaching low-to-no cost photography workshops to shelter, rescue and foster organizations throughout the United States.


Our efforts have increased adoption rates, helped facilitate hard-to-adopt, long-term residents and even compelled shelter staff to spare dogs on death row. We will be hitting the road in our motor home the first week of March to begin photographing pets and teaching workshops at more than 40 shelters throughout the United States.


We would love your support to help us get to everyone who wants and needs our assistance. If you know of a shelter, rescue or foster group that could use our assistance to improve the quality of their intake and adoption pictures, please feel free to share, or contact us directly.

Please note that all donations are tax deductible, and 100% of your donation will be used to support the Shelter Me Photography 2017 Coast-to-Coast Workshop tour. For example, $25 will pay for a shelter worker to attend a workshop, $300 will pay for materials to build an in-shelter photo studio, and all other generous offerings will help keep fuel in our tank and food in our bellies.


We will be sharing our journey with you on social media. The highlights, the heart-felt stories, connections with supporting groups and businesses, and our new friendships with other hopeful hearts like us. Most important, we will be sharing the photos of beautiful, adoptable furry angels that we have had the pleasure of meeting.


With your help, we can save more lives. We invite you to share these photos within your network, and on every social media platform that you wish.


Whether your support is hands on at one of our Photography Workshops, virtually sharing the SMP Mission and photos, a financial donation to help save lives, or simply telling a friend, we are extremely grateful for every gesture of kindness.


We look forward to saving more lives together.
