Dogs' Aid Charity Event

Furry friends get their portraits taken in aid of Dogs' Aid Dog Sanctuary!

Recently at Frank Gavin Photography, we held a charity event in aid of Dogs' Aid Animal Sanctuary in Ballymun, Dublin.

Dog's Aid is a non-profit organisation set up by three ladies in 1987. They have a no destruction policy - which means they never put a healthy dog down. So far they have re-homed hundreds of dogs, and they occasionally take care of the odd bird, fox or bat!

Our wonderful customers brought their furry friends in from across the country to get their photographs taken, and the results were amazing. We had German Shepherds to Chihuahuas and everything in between.

The event ran from the 25th to the 30th of April, although this had to be extended due to popular demand! We managed to raise a whopping €1250 for Dogs Aid, and we were delighted to help out such a fantastic cause!

We had Rocky and Kylie, who were groomed especially for their portraits! They knew plenty of tricks and were a dream to photograph.

We had Coco, an all black German Shepherd who was rescued from the pound herself at just two years old. She's a gentle giant and photographed beautifully.

We had Ollie and Billie, who were very happy to be with us! They came all the way from County Cavan just to have their portraits taken here in the studio.

We also had Mylo, who was taken care of in Dogs' Aid herself. She's an older lady, and we got some beautiful photographs of her.

And last but certainly not least we had Leah. This beautiful lady is deaf, but doesn't let this stand in her way of enjoying her life with her wonderful owners who take great care of her.

All in all the Dogs' Aid event was a tremendous success. All photographs were taken by Joe and Becki here in our studio, who thoroughly enjoyed the event. It was a delight to be a part of such a wonderful cause, and it's so nice to know that there are organisations like Dogs Aid out there looking after stray animals.

We'd like to thank all of our customers for participating in the event and helping us to raise money for Dog's Aid, and we hope to see you all back in the studio some time soon!

These are just a small sample of the pets we had in our studio, so be sure to check out a wider selection of our pet photography here at Frank Gavin Photography.
