CTSPCA – 2009 Animal Advocate of the Year } Austin, Texas Pet Photographer

About a week ago I received a call from the President of the Central Texas SPCA. She left me a nice message and asked that I call her back. I thought to myself, “I wonder what this could be about.” I mean, I have been photographing the adoptable pets at the CTSPCA for the last year and half… so I thought maybe she was calling to say, “thanks!” Which would be pretty awesome and totally unexpected, but stranger things have happened. You can imagine the surprise when I called her back and I heard the following, “We want to honor you as our 2009 Animal Advocate of the Year.” Come again? What? Really? That was literally what went through my mind in the first 20 seconds or so of hearing this. The CTSPCA President told me that they wanted to give me this honor because of all the work I have done for the CTSPCA and other non-profit animal organizations in Austin. WOW!! She then asked me if I would accept this honor – accept? ACCEPT? YES!!! of course I accept. So, I will be honored at the CTSPCA’s 21st Anniversary Gala event at the Long Center for the Performing Arts on November 19th. The CTSPCA Anniversary Gala is a really wonderful time with live music, a lovely dinner, a fabulous auction (you know I’m auctioning off a photo session with yours truly), a fantastic event space and it’s all for a really special cause. You should definitely buy your tickets here because they will probably sell out pretty fast.

I really am truly grateful to the Central Texas SPCA for this amazing honor. Thank you a million times over. I can’t wait for the event!

I do it ALL for them…
