Upcoming fundraising and outreach events supporting FDNLS

10th Annual Best Friends Photo Day


Book Your Pups Photoshoot

What’s the scoop?

This years event will be held on December 11th 2016, sessions will be scheduled between 9:00am-5:00pm. Celebrate your dog with a photoshoot by FDNLS photographer Bob Libby – receive awesome photographs of your furry best friend and help support the work of Family Dogs New Life at the same time!
Photo sessions are by appointment only. Each session will last about 10 minutes and must be booked no later than 6pm on Friday, Dec 9th.

Multiple dog appointments
Because the photo day has grown so much and become so popular, multiple dog appointments will be handled in the following way:

1-2 dogs will get one spots
3-4 dogs will get two spots
5+ dogs will get three spots

Please be sure to arrive only about 5 minutes early. The day has always been booked solid in the past and I expect it will again this year. If you’re late we’ll try to fit you in but can’t guarantee it’ll be possible.
If you need to cancel after making your appointment please contact us ASAP so that we can make your spot available to someone else. No-shows really bum us out! 

How much are photo sessions?
Sessions are $40 for each dog you bring to be photographed, your $40 donation includes ‘Facebook size’ digital download of your dogs’ images. 100% of your donation goes straight to Family Dogs New Life!

Where is it?
Once again we’ll be at Family Dogs New Life! Chances are you already know the address but just in case – 9101 SE Stanley Ave, Portland, OR. 97206
The shelter will be closed for the day so things will be low key for you and your dog.

Where can I see my photos?
We’ll have everyone’s photos finished and uploaded to an online gallery by the end of day Tuesday, December 13th.

Other stuff
We want this to be a fun, awesome event with lots of great photos of…you guessed it…dogs. We’re not offering family portraits or photos of the kids because we want to focus 110% on your furry friend. Please understand that the quality of your dog’s portraits will depend greatly upon how well they can sit & ‘pose’ for the camera. Please only bring dogs who have an understanding of basic commands like ‘Sit’ and ‘Stay’.
