Continuing our tradition of helping a local non-profit organization with our Photo Walk assets, this year we are going to focus our evening (and lenses) on Wayside Waifs.
Since 1944, Wayside Waifs has been serving the homeless pets of Kansas City. Wayside Waifs is a comprehensive animal welfare organization providing: animal rescue, shelter veterinary care, retail pet boutique, pet adoptions, off-leash dog park, humane education programs for more than 30,000 school children each year, volunteer opportunities, secure pet care for local domestic violence shelters and pet memorial services and cemetery.
Wayside Waifs is committed to finding homes for all adoptable pets. Wayside is the largest no kill pet adoption campus in Kansas City, placing approximately 5,400 animals each year. Wayside does not euthanize adoptable animals, and there are no time limits for animals in our care. Only animals suffering from significant medical issues or those that pose a danger are humanely euthanized. Wayside Waifs is proud to be a part of Kansas City's no kill community.
After the photowalk we will post our best images to a website. Wayside Waifs will select the prize-winning photo. The photos become available to the nonprofit to use as they see fit in their marketing and promotion (with the provision that our members can use their own photos in their portfolios).
Don't forget we will draw for the Creative Cloud annual subscription in the raffle drawing and you must be present to win! We will adjourn from Wayside Waifs to dinner/drinks at 54th Street Grill, about a mile away. The social part of the evening is optional, but it will be nice to gather informally after our photo walk!
Wayside Waifs is located in south Kansas City at 3901 Martha Truman Road, Kansas City, MO 64137.
See you Tuesday night, June 4, at 6:00 pm!
