We love our rescue community.

Help us show them how grateful we are for the work they do for animals.

From the photographers and co-founders of The Limelight Pet Project, Gratitude to the Rescue is focused on celebrating the people doing great work for rescue animals in the Greater Seattle Area.

Nominate your favorite rescue hero working or volunteering within the rescue community to show your gratitude for the amazing things they do. We will be selecting six winners from the nominations to receive professional photography sessions featuring them with their animal companions (or a rescue animal of their choice).

We will also select one random winner from those who submit nominations to win a professional photography session with Dirtie Dog Photography and Holly Cook Photography.
