In January of 2015 I decided I wanted to do something fun and special with my business. I became a Purrrrfect Partner with Miss Kitty’s Feline Sanctuary in Thomasville, GA. Miss Kitty is not-for-profit, volunteer-operated, no-kill/no-cage kitten and cat rescue which relies on generous donations and volunteer efforts from community members. I am proud to be a donor and volunteer for this organization.
Each time Lindsi Jones Photography covers a wedding the life of a shelter cat is sponsored on behalf of the happy couple. In 2015 I was able to sponsor the lives of 12 cats, which makes me incredibly happy! In addition to sponsorships I provide the shelter with photography, which helps in promoting shelter events, awareness, and helps cats and kittens find their forever homes.
In August I began creating a photographic series featuring one hundred and one current resident, former resident, and supporting cats of Miss Kitty wearing handcrafted bowties. 101 Cats in Bow Ties is a tribute to the beauty of cats especially ones in shelters waiting for their forever homes. The goal and purpose of this series is to create smiles, warm hearts, and raise awareness for the millions of animals in shelters waiting for someone special to take them home. In 2015 I photographed 77 cats for the series and expect to wrap up shooting around March 2016.
Be sure to follow me here on the blog as well as on social media to keep up with my progress on the series and to see fun cat photos!
