We love to get Happy Tails from our adoptive families! Here’s one from Michael: I wanted to share an update of Pika, the dog I found (rescued) and subsequently adopted from RASKC (Kent).

Zulily, the Seattle based e-commerce company, has previously worked with RASKC to help raise awareness of our adoptable pets through in-studio photo shoots.

RASKC, along with other pet agencies, were selected to take part in a fun, community service project held at Zulily‘s studios. The project was created in the hopes of raising awareness of shelter pets by donating their time and expertise to capture the pets in a softer light, namely in a home-like setting. Zulily, which provided exclusive access to their studios and creative staff, set three beautiful backdrops ranging from playful room, to the “We’re going on vacation!” feel, and finally “This is home” vibe.
Below is an interview with the two amazing professionals that took action and got involved! (to see photos from the shoot, scroll past interview).
THANK YOU JASON HERITAGE, SEAN GUMM AND THE WHOLE ZULILY TEAM!
