I think giving back to my community is very important.  We do numerous fundraisers every year for local rescues and animal organizations.  Whatever we can do to help, we try.  My 4 Paws Project allows me to provide photos of animals looking for their forever homes.  We provide portraits of pets free of charge for area rescues and shelters.  It's important to have great photos of the animal to showcase their personalities.  It's shown a good picture directly increases adoption rates.

 

Another way we give back is thru our Crazy M Cattle Dog Spay/Neuter Fund at the Animal Birth Control Clinic.  We provide free surgeries for cattle dogs who's owners would otherwise not be able to financially have it done.  My adopted dog, Butch, is the spokesdog for the fund and helps raise money.  You can visit his facebook page at www.facebook.com/butchthecrazymcattledog.  You can also donate to help us at http://www.gofundme.com/crazymcattledog.
