The displayed photos feature animals sheltered at Orange County’s Animal Services
Center in years past. While the animals in the photos are no longer available for
adoption, there are countless others like them that are still in need of loving homes.
About “Home for the Holidays”
“Home for the Holidays” is an annual event that aims to raise shelter awareness during the holiday season, both for those missing a lost pet and those choosing to add one to their family. Orange County Animal Services begins its “Home for the Holidays” event November 11, 2013 and it runs through January 11, 2014. In addition to the photo exhibit, the event also includes:
- Adoption Specials for all available dogs ($60) and cats ($50).
- A Canned Pet Food Drive for animal owners in need of help. Donated cans of cat and dog food can be dropped off at the Animal Services Center and will be delivered by Orange Congregations In Mission (OCIM) and Chapel Hill Meals on Wheels.
- Adoptable dogs will be representing Animal Services on Saturday, December 7, at the Hillsborough Holiday Parade and on Saturday, December 14, at the Chapel Hill/Carrboro Holiday Parade.
- Pictures with Santa will be offered at the Animal Services Center on Saturday, December 21, from 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. The cost is four or more cans for the Canned Pet Food Drive.
About This Exhibit
All of the photos in this exhibit were taken on the adoption floor of Orange County’s Animal Services Center. The photographer, Andi Morgan, works as the Communications Specialist for the Animal Services Department and has been with the county since 2007. The photos were primarily shot using a Nikon D50 without flash. Andi works without assistance in photographing every animal in the facility and considers it one of the most important and rewarding parts of her job.
