Recently, the Linnea Lenkus Studios held a fundraiser to promote pet adoption and raise awareness about euthanasia. The event, Dog Days 2011, was a huge success. Animal lovers arrived with their pets and families in either Pasadena, Long Beach or Irvine to participate in a portrait session that included a free print with a donation of $25.
Thanks to kind hearted pet owners, KTLA news, and other social media, they were able to get the word out across the nation. The event had such immense feedback that it had to be extended an additional two days. As a result over $3,000 was raised and given to the local animal care centers: L.A. Animal Services, Irvine Animal Care Center, and the organization, F.O.L.B.A. (Friends of Long Beach Animals).
A dog photography video about the event was produced.
