In The Community

Shelter & Rescue Work

I am honored to be an artist member with HeARTs Speak. If you are interested in working with Bark & Gold Photography, I'd love to talk with you about providing pro bono photography for your rescue, shelter, or animal welfare group. 

Annual Pet Calendar

Bark & Gold Photography also gives back through donations to area silent auctions, various organizations, and through my annual pet calendar contest that raises money for local rescues and animal-related non-profits.

Works of HeART

Did you know only about 30% of homes find their forever friend through shelters and rescues? Let's work to raise that number! If you are a shelter or rescue group in the Pittsburgh area or western Pennsylvania, I'd love to talk with you to see how I can help.

HeARTs Speak is "a global community of photographers, writers, graphic designers, sculptors, painters, illustrators, shelter staff, rescue volunteers, and animal advocates working together to ensure that no shelter animal goes unseen." As a part of the more than 600 HeARTs Speak members and artists worldwide, I am proud to donate my time and talent pro bono to western Pennsylvania's animal welfare organizations and shelters with the goal of helping every animal find a forever home through professional pet portraits.

Bark & Gold is proud to support the following rescues, organizations, and companies:
