Owner, By Kimgirl, Founder, Studio South MQT
I’m a local photographer and have been involved in multiple UPAWS fundraisers over the years, with pet portrait sessions and lifestyle sessions being raffled at the annual “Cause For Paws Gala”. When I was told that I was a UPAWS Celebrity nominee to be locked-up and (hopefully) bailed out, I could not contain my excitement.
For as long as I can remember, there have been animals in my life, and for that I am so grateful. My pitty-lab, Jagger, is adopted and I can’t imagine our home without him and his feisty feline sister, Carmella. Pets teach us humans what true, unconditional love is and UPAWS gives people the opportunity to show the shelter animals that same kind of love for the first time, and forever. I know that this fundraiser can make a huge impact and help UPAWS continue the incredible work that they do for the animals and families in our community, and it is truly an honor to be a part of it.
