Beautiful photo portraits -- of shelter animals to benefit a municipal shelter in Pittsfield, MA

The Sonsini Shelter in Pittsfield, MA, is a "no-kill" shelter that takes in many of the community's strays, or animals being given up by their guardians, and works hard to find them good homes.  One of the board members has a husband who is a professional photographer, and he takes gorgeous photos of the shelter animals and sells them in various formats online to help raise money for the shelter.  Postcards can be purchased for as little as 99 cents each.

Check out these beautiful photos at this link, and if you live in the Berkshires, consider taking home one of the shelter's animals -- they are full of personality, and all need good homes.  My brother is a volunteer at the shelter, and I know for a fact that sometimes the animals are there for a year or longer before they find their "forever" homes.
