Tina Quatroni, the owner of Petcha Photography based in the Hudson Valley of New York, is devoted to animals. Not only does she spend her days capturing beautiful moments of people’s beloved pets, she also donates her time with a local group, PawSafe Animal Rescue, photographing dogs before and after their adoptions.

“I was seeking a rescue that I could dedicate my time to with my photography and graphic skills,” said Tina. “In 2010, I found and fell in love with the family of volunteers that make our rescue complete. We have grown together and made some amazing things happen, and we save over 900 puppies a year from high-kill shelters.”

A few years later,Tina spearheaded a fund-raising campaign by creating a beautiful calendar featuring dogs who were adopted through PawSafe. All of the proceeds of the calendar go directly to PawSafe.

“Our annual calendar fundraising project is my biggest accomplishment,” Tina said. “It was first produced in 2013, and it has become a major hit!”
