As a lifelong advocate of rescue animal adoptions, I am now making it easier for our visitors to picture adorable pets available at the Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center (PRC) in your own lives and riding in your Honda.

Eighteen cardboard cut-outs of shelter cats and dogs are now romping throughout our Brandon Honda showroom at 9209 E. Adamo Drive to steal your heart and raise awareness of all the deserving, healthy dogs and cats available for adoption through breed specific rescue groups, SPCAs and humane societies, or at county-run shelters and animal services.

As you know, my family and I have always had a deep passion for saving, fostering, and adopting shelter animals. They make such wonderful pets when matched with just the right family for their personalities and needs. Sadly, crowded shelters simply can’t feed and care for all the animals they receive, so many are forced to resort to euthanasia to keep their animal populations down to a manageable size.

We feel a better solution is to encourage adoptions and foster arrangements, while raising funds for and volunteering at animal shelters.

Local pet photographer Adam Goldberg took photos recently at the Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center located at 440 N. Falkenburg Rd, in Tampa, FL 33619. He knows rescue animals can be especially hard to photograph when they are anxious and confused in the transition from a home or the streets to shelters. He’s had to learn how to win their confidence so that they can relax and turn on their true personality for the camera!

Check out this video of one of Adam’s pet photo sessions in action at https://www.facebook.com/agoldphotos/videos/1730623017251768/. Stop in to see Adam’s pet photos at 9209 E. Adamo Drive in Tampa, FL 33619, one mile west of I-75.

Then go to the Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. seven days a week and fall in love with one of their special pets ready for a forever home. For more information call (813) 744-5660 or visit https://www.hillsboroughcounty.org/en/locations/pet-resource-center.
