Girl Scout Megan Winters earns Gold Award for photo center project

Megan Winters recently completed her Girl Scout Gold Award project by constructing a new photo center for the Sugar Land Animal Shelter to use to photograph animals that are up for adoption.

Animals available for adoption from the shelter have profiles that potential adopters view online. Taking a good “cute” photograph of a pet improves the chances of adoption for the animal.  Studies show that the style of a photo can affect the perception of the animal shelter and the animal. The shelter now has the capability to take good, quality photos in an efficient manner.  The photo center is easily broken down to lessen the storage space yet is sturdy when assembled.  Currently, the photo center has seven different backgrounds for photographing adoptable animals, as well as an assortment of props to use the neatly cataloged and stored.

The Sugar Land Animal Shelter does not do out right adoptions. It has a trial period where you can take the animal home to see if it fits in with your family before you decide to adopt.  This “sleep over” is helpful for the potential owner to make sure the animal is a good fit.
