Our animal-loving friend and photographer Ellen Zangla sat down to chat with us about her fundraising efforts for Northern Virginia’s neediest animals.
We recently sat down and had a fun and engaging interview with our friend Ellen Zangla, who last year released a book of her animal photography as a fundraiser for animals in need. Proceeds from Tails of Loudoun County — a beautiful coffee-table book featuring shots of various Loudoun-county cats, dogs, and other friendly critters — are being donated to two local animal groups: Friends of Loudoun County Animal Services and Loudoun Community Cat Coalition. For the book, Ellen captured portraits of more than 200 different animals at various scenic and historic spots around Loudoun County. So far the book has raised close to $30,000 to help make the lives of some very fortunate area shelter, stray, and feral animals better!
Ellen decided more than 10 years ago to blend her photographic skills with her love of animals and create her own business: Ellen Zangla Photography, based nearby in Hamilton, Virginia. She shares with us some great tips for taking a good photograph of your pet, and talks about how one local organization is doing all they can to help keep the feral cat population healthy. A life-long animal lover, Ellen feels strongly about giving back to animals in need, and we applaud her passion and her community-minded generosity!
