Elaine Goepfert's business is aptly named—she loves her work and it shows in the beautiful sponsor photos of the Home for Life® animals from this late summer. Elaine is a busy and in-demand portrait photographer in Minneapolis, and it was the first time we have worked with her.
They're here! The official album of photos from Home for Life's® Fall Gala with special guest Ashley Judd. Thank you to our event photographer Katie Theiring who, with Jeannette Nargelenas, has photographed every Home for Life® gala since the first -- in 2007 with our guest Cesar Millan. Follow this link for the photo album.
A care for life sanctuary is a unique place for unique animals. Why should a cat or dog lose all that makes them irreplaceable, one in a million, just because they enter the animal rescue "system" where success persists in being defined by the numbers? Behind every data point, every number -- is an individual cat or dog, with a story and the need for someone to recognize all that makes them distinctive.
Mark Luinenburg has photographed every season at Home for Life® since nearly the beginning, nearly 20 years ago.
It's not too soon to plan to join us this fall for the most anticipated gala event of the season! Home for Life's® Fall Gala, the Fancy Feast will welcome beautiful Ashley Judd as our special guest at this year's event. Like our 2018 gala guest, Dr, Jane Goodall, Ashley loves dogs and works hard for conservation efforts, particularly on behalf of bonobos apes in their native Congo. Ashley also loves and cherishes all animals, and has relied on her beloved dogs for emotional support animals during turbulent times of her life.
