Paws for a good cause

Homer Animal Friends appreciates the generous support of the Homer Bookstore, the Homer Chamber of Commerce, the community and especially David Jensen of David Jensen Photography in Anchorage. Two successful events were held last weekend  to raise funds for the Homer Animal Friends.
David’s book signing of “It’s Important to Paws” brought out the community for a celebration of animals. It was a great opportunity for all to socialize, share a “paws” story and support a good cause. The Homer Bookstore donated 20 percent of proceeds of book sales to Homer Animal Friends. Thanks to Sue Post of the Homer Bookstore for hosting a night of fun and fundraising.
David Jensen created “Click for Licks” to support local rescue groups/shelters and to celebrate the bond between animals and their people through his beautiful photography. Homer Animal Friends hosted a local “Clicks for Licks,” an all-day photo shoot at the Homer Chamber of Commerce.  
David Jensen photographed four beautiful shelter cats that will soon be up for adoption and more than 25 amazing dogs of Homer. A big thank you to all the parents who supported this event by bringing their dogs to be photographed.   
Fifteen dollars of the photo session price and 20 percent of online sales is donated to Homer Animal Friends.
David Jensen deserves credit for raising awareness, giving Homer wonderful memories and strengthening the bond with our four-pawed loved ones. Thanks to all who supported these events for Homer Animal Friends.
