This is not a photo shoot. This is what is required for you to take the dogs outside and shoot photos of them. This is completely a Memphis Animal Services event and has nothing to do with us. However, in order for them to let you handle the dogs, you are required to become a volunteer through them. A few members including myself have taken this already and are now cleared to go in a take photos. They require you to have a certain amount of volunteer hours on paper before you can take photos, but they do not go by this. You can start shooting as long as they feel you are comfortable with dogs. In this orientation, they basically go over their operations and clarify what they do. Tracy is the Volunteer Organizer and is very nice. He will interview each one of you afterwards to make sure you are not out to embarass them in media. They are a kill shelter and they get a lot of negativity for doing so. We have to look past this there so we can do something about it.
