Ready for your close up? Stray dogs at Birmingham Dogs’ Home are celebrating National Dog Day this Sunday with new photographs to help find their furever homes, thanks to city-based Reeves PR.
The Colmore Row PR company is strengthening its relationship with the charity by donating its team of photographers and digital experts to capture the dogs on camera and film for its website.
Clive Reeves, founder and managing director of Reeves, said: “We’re huge fans of Birmingham Dogs’ Home, which does amazing work in helping to rehome dogs, and we were keen to help the charity beyond our annual donation in lieu of corporate Christmas cards and gifts during the holiday season.
“After talking to the staff there, we realised that the best way to support them was to donate our time by getting our team of professionals to photograph and film some of the dogs that are awaiting adoption, capturing their unique personalities and telling their stories.
“We’ll also be visiting regularly to photograph any new dogs in the hope that it helps them to be adopted and we’ll provide regular updates on their rehoming journeys.”
Rachel Frost, of Birmingham Dogs’ Home, said: “We are thrilled that the Reeves PR team is continuing to help us in our efforts to get our strays rehomed and hope that by having better images and films of the dogs that really show off their playful and caring sides, will pull at the heartstrings of would-be adopters.
“Last year we rescued 2,700 dogs and were able to successfully rehome over 1,500, many of which are still with us looking for their loving homes. We couldn't survive as a charity without the help of our fantastic supporters. It costs over £2.1 million each year to run our centre, which is why we are launching our very own ‘Great Birmingham Bark Off’, encouraging all Birmingham dog lovers across the Midlands and beyond to raise funds for our furry friends, and have lots of fun so we can continue helping stray dogs in need”
