A Dog's Life Photography's Rescue Group Photo Program


Hello Rescue Groups!

A Dog's Life Photo would love to help you with your adoption photos!

We will be taking appointments at our studio in Phoenix, AZ. You can bring up to two dogs that are currently up for adoption in for a 20 minute session. We will provide you with at least two professionally edited, high resolution digital photos of each animal. You may use these photos for any purpose that is intended to promote your rescue group or the adoption of any animal under the care of your rescue group. This includes but is not limited to the following photo usage:

  • Adoption ads
  • Website design
  • Marketing materials
  • Business cards
  • Logos
  • Promotional items 

The rules are simple: 

  • Dogs must currently be up for adoption
  • Dogs must know basic sit and stay commands
  • No animals with any aggression issues! Dogs must get along with people and other animals.
  • You must be a 501c3 group and an authorized representative from the group must sign a release allowing A Dog’s Life Photo to use the photos for any purpose in exchange for the session/photos provided. 
  • You can only take advantage of this awesome opportunity once a month so you leave room for other groups to participate. 
  • You must be willing to help out during the session to keep the dogs in place in front of the camera. 

"Susan Richey-Schmitz captures that brief moment in time that reveals a glimpse into the essence of an animal's spirit - from the pain dwelling in the heart of the senior Beagle abandoned by his family for being too old, to the curiosity of the young Siamese as it discovers a new feather, to the exuberance of the Pug puppy playing dress-up. Her devotion to the rescue animals in our community is such a gift, not just to the rescue groups who take in these homeless animals, but to the animals themselves, who often seem transformed after a session where they are no longer unwanted, unneeded or unnecessary, but are instead the stars of the moment. "  Terri Wood, Arizona Pug Adoption and Rescue Network
