Because of my super-duper soft spot for animals, I enjoy giving back to animal communities in my area in a variety of ways. I'll sometimes donate prints for auctions benefiting shelters or special needs animals in my area. I have also donated my time to take photographs of the wonderful animals that are available for adoption from the Central Texas SPCA (a non-profit, no-kill rescue shelter in Leander, Texas, that is fully funded through donations), and for the Taylor, TX animal shelter (a small, open intake, no-kill municipal shelter). If you would like to help the animals at the Taylor animal shelter, stop by the Texas Critter Crusaders web page or Facebook page and consider making a donation or volunteering. Texas Critter Crusaders is a non-profit organization formed to help the animals at the Taylor animal shelter with medical expenses that the city budget is not able to cover.
