Shelter pups get chance to shine as award-winning photographer returns to Tonawanda


Tonawanda News —

Despite all those challenges, Casteel said, there’s a good chance some shots from the Canine Splash shoot will end up in the new book, which is due out in October 2014. 

“I want to feature as many adopted and adoptable puppies as possible,” he said. “I think that it’s an important thing to do for the mission of promoting rescue and adoption and showing people it’s a great option. We’re making heroes of these puppies.”

Workman said it’s a wonderful opportunity for the shelters.

“How cool is that? To know your puppy was a star before you ever met them? That would be fabulous,” she said. “It’s great to have shelters who are willing to partner to do things like this, to work together to show how awesome these dogs can be. They can do wonderful things.”

As for the SPCA pups, they’re on to their next adventure. The three will be visiting the Erie County Fair today, continuing their role as SPCA ambassadors ... this time on dry land.
