Stray No More

Blog Name: Stray No More

Complete Blog URL: straynomore.wordpress.com/

General category (dog, cat, all, other): dog, cat

Blog Description: Stray No More is about photography and getting the perfect photos of the adoptable animals at my local animal shelter. I volunteer weekly at the Roanoke Valley SPCA. The blog is a collection of posts from the past several years of volunteering there. When I began there was very little information on the web about shelter photography. There was lots of good pet photography advice but not too much about the special circumstances and challenges in a shelter environment.

Photos communicate what an animal looks like but getting a great photo can say so much more about that animal. It can communicate the hope, love and spirit locked inside of an animal in transition. Bonds can be created before adopters ever step foot into the shelter thanks to web sites and social media.

Stray No More hopes to give budding photographers and shelters the information to improve their photos for the benefit of adoptable animals in their own communities. Shining the light on an animal in need creates a special reward all its own.

Blog description: Three (spoiled) cats occasionally share their blog with their Mom so she can talk about animal health and rescue issues.

Wordless Wednesdays are often reserved as a showcase for their quirky personalities.

They participate in the Saturday Pet Blogger Blog Hop, the quarterly “Be the Change” blog hop, as well as Petfinder’s Adopt a Less-Adoptable Pet Week. They are also members of the BlogPaws and Pets Blogroll communities.

About the blogger(s): Ryker (founder) went over the Rainbow Bridge last November, after succumbing to a sudden blood clot.

His two prodigies, Maxwell and Faraday, were named by their physicist father after two famous physicists. (Let’s just say they have a lot to live up to with regard to their namesakes). Allie is a pink-toenailed rescue kitty who is fond of quoting her “Alma Mater,” Missouri’s largest no-kill animal and rescue shelter, Wayside Waifs.

Their Mom is the Executive Producer for Hallmark Cards’ Media Productions and is an avid animal advocate…and “staff” to these three hooligans.
