SNAP needs volunteers to take pictures of our pets who are ready for adoption.

As part of the adoption process, we list all SNAP pets ready for their forever homes in a variety of places online – from our website, newsletter and Facebook page to other social media and a network of dozens of adoption sites.

A great picture of each animal is a key piece of this marketing process – and the sooner we can make a good picture available, the sooner we can get the pet listed online, and the sooner we can get them adopted.

Over the years we have found that a great picture that captures the soul of the pet is the key to getting them adopted. Not only that, but regular updates have proven repeatedly to be just as important as a first round of pictures.

Getting that great shot takes mostly patience and good light – most mobile phones and digital cameras of course give excellent results. All that is needed is to come by and snap a few selfies with our cats and kittens, and send them to us electronically. We like to keep it simple and we’ll do the rest.

Typically we ask photographer-volunteers to show up at one of our adoption centers to take some candid pictures of each animal. We work with your schedule to make sure the kittens, cats and dogs are at a location when you can schedule a session to come by and take a picture. Often this does not take much time, and you can then forward to us electronically for posting on online media.

If you are interested in helping, please email us at or please feel free to complete our online volunteer application.

SNAP is proud of our volunteers and the good service they do in helping deserving pets find forever homes.
