I first met Tamara Pitman in February 2012, as a foster parent helping varied local rescues. After many years of serving other rescues organizations and spending a small fortune in the process, Pitman decided to created her own rescue endeavor: Dachshund Rescue of Los Angeles.
I’m a huge proponent of collaboration and for the last 14 months, Pitman and I have been working together to save and place dachshunds. She pulls them from shelters and I photograph them. Pitman and I do not share an exclusive relationship and I make my photo services available to any local dachshund rescue willing to work with my schedule and me. However, Pitman seems to truly appreciate the power of a good picture in permanently placing these precious pups looking for a new lease on life.
According to my loose calculations I have photographed about 65+ rescue dachshunds in the last 55 weeks, which averages to about 1 doxie a week. More than two thirds of them, were at the request and coordination of Pitman. In an attempt to help Pitman, I have allocated 10 books (of 102 Dachshunds) – for her personal fundraising. Each time a person gets a copy of the limited edition collector’s book 102 Dachshunds, $80 will be automatically donated to Pitman and her newly formed rescue (the balance is kept to cover shipping expenses and hard cost). It’s our goal to get her $800 so she can complete her 501c3 paperwork. If you want to support Pitman and help her fulfill her mission of reducing the number of dachshunds being euthanized in SoCal get your book today via PayPal. Please be certain to put “DRLA” in the note section of the PayPal to ensure proper credit.
Here are four more beautiful dachshunds Pitman recently rescued. For more information or to schedule a meet and greet, please call (310) 857-0086, email firstname.lastname@example.org or message Dachshund Rescue of Los Angeles on Facebook. Please share. Thank you!
