AGoldPhoto Pet Photography is trying to raise $10,000 for the Humane Society.

TAMPA, Fla. — The Humane Society of Tampa Bay and AGoldPhoto Pet Photography are teaming up again to raise $10,000 for the shelter.

Adam Goldberg began photographing animals at the shelter in 2016.

He replaces intake photos with professional ones.

“I started volunteering here at the Humane Society in 2016. It was just for fun and it was never a business idea, and gradually, I saw my photos online, and my friends. Said, ‘Hey, can you take pictures of my dog ​​too??’ “I did it kind of begrudgingly, and long story short, it started a whole business,” Goldberg said.

He started AGoldPhoto Pet Photography. More than five years ago. For the past three years, she has photographed families and their pets in her studio in South Tampa.

Once a week, he goes to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay to photograph shelter animals.

“We post them online. Most of the time, I post on Facebook, but then on Instagram and TikTok, I make a behind-the-scenes video that shows the before and after. An intake photo versus our photo. It’s like night and day, different, doesn’t even look like the same pet,” Goldberg said.

For the past three years, she has also created a coffee table book titled “Tales of Gratitude – A Collection of Thank You Notes from People to Their Pets.”

It’s a way for pet parents to say thank you for all they do for their pets and help raise money for the Humane Society of Tampa Bay.

Goldberg is accepting requests from people who want to include their pets in the book. Successful applicants will be guaranteed a double page spread in the book and will pay a registration fee of $185, 100% of which will be donated to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay.

The book is scheduled to be published at the end of November with a launch party.

Photo shoots will take place at AGoldPhoto Pet Photo Studio in South Tampa. Participants will be able to choose their favorite photo for the book, write a thank-you note for their pet, and have the opportunity to purchase a printed photographic artwork for their home or office.

“The Humane Society of Tampa Bay is thrilled to work with AGoldPhoto Pet Photography on Volume 4 of Tails of Gratitude. We love that this project continues to help the homeless pets in our care,” said Sherry Silk, CEO of the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. “We also love their Second Shot Adoption Photo Program where AGoldPhoto takes new photos of our adoptable animals to give them a “second shot” at finding a home.”

Goldberg is accepting applications from now until June 30.
