I was honored to be able to photograph the many adoptable dogs at T.A.R.A. this weekend. While I am dedicated to certain organizations regularly, I will always try to open my heart and my time to various animal rescues who need my assistance with photographing their dogs. It means the world to me how much appreciation I am shown and gives me the courage and strength to keep giving these dogs a voice through my photography. I know together we can make a huge difference in the lives of these dogs. "Saving one dog won't change the world, but it will surely change the world for that one dog." Richard C. Call.
The Animal Rescue Alliance (T.A.R.A.) is an all volunteer group dedicated to helping homeless pets in the Greater Kansas City area. Their organization is the result of an alliance between several rescuers in the Kansas City region who share the same goal of ending animal suffering and homelessness.
It is the mission of The Animal Rescue Alliance to establish and maintain the ideals of Tara Nagel with regards to the treatment of homeless and unwanted animals. Tara was an angel on earth who lost her life in a terrible car accident on November 2005. Before leaving us, Tara had found her vocation in working with companion animals and was an angel to the pets that were lucky enough to be under her care. Tara was such a kind, caring and compassionate person, that we are sure she has moved onto something bigger and better. She must have been called to comfort the astonishing number of pets that die without a home. She is now our inspiration and motivation to continue helping pets in need.
