It’s said a picture is worth a thousand words. But a photo also has the ability to freeze time and capture a priceless memory to hold forever. This May, APA! is partnering with the nationally acclaimed Jennifer Lindberg Studio to provide a beautiful photo of your pet that will also help support the long stay dogs of APA!.
All participants will receive a complimentary photo session by a talented portrait artist and a gift certificate to apply toward their portrait purchase, a total value of $850. Each participant will have one of their portraits published in a special coffee table book dedicated to the long stay dogs of APA!. A non-refundable reservation fee of $100 goes to APA! when the session is booked. More information and how to book your session can be found here.
This year’s goal is to raise $15,000 all in the name of the long stay dogs of APA!. Long-time volunteer, Jess Borda, reflects that these “incredibly special dogs need a little extra care -- extra patience time or training to get ready for adoption” which is why their stay at the shelter may be 60+ days. “The fact that Jennifer is helping to showcase these special creatures means the world.”
Supporting nonprofits like this is rooted in Lindberg’s personal philosophy. She began her career with the goal of making a difference in the world by using her talents to help those in need. Lindberg says the organizations their fundraisers benefit are selected based on referrals from the clients who have used her services. “I learned about all of these nonprofits through our clients. We invite our clients to share their favorite nonprofits… (the ones) that positively impact their lives.”
We’re grateful that APA! has impacted so many human lives and equally grateful that businesses like Jennifer Lindberg Studio created special opportunities to support APA!, making a positive impact on the lives of pets while they await their adoptive homes.
