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 as an artist member with HeARTs Speak, "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, Bark & Gold Photography is proud to donate its 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.

A portion of each session is donated to one of five animal shelters and non-profits in Pittsburgh. Bark & Gold Photography is proud to support the following rescues, organizations, and companies:
