Photographing Adoptable Pets: Tonkadale Greenhouse's Annual Event Highlights

Updated: May 20

Back again for another year, the free foster photo event at Tonkadale Greenhouse in Minnetonka, MN was a huge success! I teamed up with my pet photographer friends, Kelly of K Schulz Photography and Kirsten of KME Photography, to photograph adoptable pets with the goal of sprucing up their adoption profiles and helping them find their amazing forever homes!

Tonkadale: where it's beautiful year-round

We're so lucky to have an amazing location to shoot at each year in Tonkadale Greenhouse. The employees were so excited to meet each of the animals and help us create a safe and welcoming space for everyone.

Need some treats?

Stepping up to the treat task, we had NutriSource Pet Foods and Finley's! Not only did we have some awesome treats to grab attention during the event, each of the adoptable pets went home with a goody bag from NutriSource and Finley's.

The who's who of adoptable pets

It was awesome to see some returning rescue organizations as well as some new ones! We had two adoptable rabbits join us this year, too, which was very exciting for me personally. Without further ado, may I present to you... the adoptable dogs and rabbits?

Felix from No Dog Left Behind: ADOPTED

Miguel from No Dog Left Behind: Hospice Foster, not available for adoption. Miguel is fighting cancer and smiling every day! You can follow Miguel on Facebook.

Diving Deeper: A Look Behind the Scenes

Here are a few more behind the scenes moments from the morning. Lots of cute puppies and big smiles. We made silly noises and threw treat bags around. We laughed and tried not to sweat too much in the greenhouse. We all crouched really low and tested our flexibility to get the best angles. Overall, we had lots of fun and it's all for such a great cause - helping adoptable pets find their forever homes!

Are you a foster parent looking for photography services?

While this event only comes around once per year, the three of us photographers are available to help capture beautiful photos of foster pets throughout the year.

Please reach out if you have a foster animal in need of some professional photography to capture their personality and help them land the best forever family!

It's truly an honor to volunteer my time and photography services to help out the rescue animals in our community! I'm already so excited for our event next spring!
