Get your dog’s, cat’s, rabbit’s, bird’s… portrait on our calendar and raise money for the Center for Animal Health and Welfare!; pet photography by Bethlehem, Allentown, Easton area, PA photographer Tracy Bodeo.

Now’s your chance to get your adorable pet’s picture on a calendar and help raise money for the Center for Animal Health & Welfare!  Our 2013 Pet Calendar will be celebrating the CAHW’s 100 years in operation and will feature 12 “pets of the month” as  large (~8×8″ – 8×10″) images as well as lots of smaller images of your pets throughout the calendar.  All proceeds from this project go to the animals at the Center.

A $250 donation gets you a professional, on-location portrait session with tracy bodeo photography,  your pet as one of the featured pets and a free calendar.  Or you can send me your own picture of your pet with a $30.00 donation and your pet will appear as one of our ~1×1.5″ images somewhere on the “grid” part of our calendar.  You will also receive a free calendar.  If you have already had your pet’s portrait taken by tracy bodeo photography, there is one additional option for getting your image on the calendar– please contact me for details.

So the project has begun!  Contact me now– spaces will go fast!  All photography and image submissions will be due by September.  Calendars will be printed and ready for purchase by November.  For details on how to book your session or send in your own image, please email me at mail@tracybodeo.com.

Fun at the Fetching Pet Portraits Fundraiser; tracy bodeo photography at AVH Veterinary Group

Our second annual Fetching Fundraiser took place at AVH Veterinary Group on February 5th, 2012.  The images were posted online shortly after the event, but I am still receiving the final choices of what to print by clients who purchased the portrait packages that raised money for the Center for Animal Health and Welfare.  In all, we raised $2003.00 for the Center, the majority of which came from the portraits, but an additional $400.00+ came from our raffle.  Several dogs from the Center were there to greet customers (in the hopes of finding their own homes) and AVH also ran a puppy playgroup during the event– what a crowd we had!  All the dogs who participated in the event seemed to have a great time!

Below are a few pictures taken during the event (courtesy of Bob Thompson) and then some of my favorite client portraits from the event.  Thank you to all these gorgeous dogs who helped raise money for the homeless animals at the shelter!

The 2011 Center for Animal Health and Welfare holiday cards are now available for purchase in an effort to raise money for the Center.  Each pack of eight 5×7 cards (2 each of 4 designs) costs $20.00 and all proceeds go directly to the animals at the Center.  You can choose a cat pack or a dog pack or get one or more of both!  If there is one particular style that you like best, you can also order one pack of 25 cards for $60.00.  All of the animals featured on the cards are residents of the CAHW and some of them have been there for 1 or 2+ years.  We are hoping not only to raise some money but also to raise awareness of our homeless pets and find them homes for the holidays.  If you are interested in adopting one of our homeless pets or in purchasing a pack or two of our cards, please visit the Center in Easton www.healthyanimalcenter.com or contact me directly at mail@tracybodeo.com .  Thank you to our sponsors who helped cover the cost of printing: “A Furry Tail Come True” Doggie Daycare and Boarding www.afurrytailcometrue.com  (Hellertown, PA), AVH Veterinary Group www.avhvet.vetsuite.com (Pen Argyl, PA) and Joanie & Bob Thompson of Thompson Photo Arts- nature and wildlife photography http://thompsonphotoarts.com.  Thank you for your support!
