A picture is worth a 1000 words. Photos are very important in the adoption of animals from a shelter. A great photograph of a dog or cat can help that animal find a loving home. Adopters do not want to see a picture of an animal in a cage or a kennel, they want to see a snapshot of what their future pet will look like on a run, a hike or frolicking on the beach. Adopters want to see smiling, tail wagging, happy dogs and cuddling, purring cats.
