Barking Tales

Who are those furry creatures that we chose to be our companions since aprox. 30,000 years ago? Dogs have been part of many aspects of our lives for such a long time, and still there are so many without a place to call home. Barking Tales is a personal project that intends to raise awareness of our moral commitment with the species that once we decided to domesticate to be with us.

Animals have always been close to my heart. As a pet owner and volunteer at the animal shelter at the biggest no-kill city in the United States (Austin yay!!) for almost two years, I have accumulated a series of personal stories and experiences that I visually communicate here.

Best in show

How does Austin celebrate its fifth anniversary as the biggest no-kill city in the nation? 
With a huge party for the Austin community and their dogs! and that, of course, includes adoptable dogs. Several rescue groups, vendors, and charities were invited to share with the pups and the general public. There was live music, dog costume contest, raffles, and tons of smiles.
Best in Show was a big celebration of life that took place on May 7th at the Austin Animal Center. There is no better place to celebrate the lives of the ones who more need us.
