So if you have followed my work you know I do this zine called Summer of Shred every summer.
This year has been the most busy for me when it comes to travel / shooting for this thing. Its a mammoth and sadly I can’t publish it on my own this year because I refuse to edit photographs that deserve to be in it.
That being said Summer of Shred is twice the size this year so after much trouble with different fund raising sites I have happily started this IndieGoGo page to help me push this issue of SOS into production.
I really have put everything I have into this years issue and I am trying my hardest to see it printed and in peoples hands.
So please, check out the video on the page of me awkwardly describing this project and making myself look like a goof.
It would mean the world if you would share this post, share the page, and even more if people donated to help this thing see the light of day.
I have lined up some awesome rewards for people so check em out and if you like what is given then please donate!
Thank you so much a head of time if you share this.

People need to realize the significance of this post, because when I reblogged it it was just blank so I think some people may not understand what this is trying to say
Adopting an animal (or buying from someone close to you who has recently had puppies, kittens, etc) is not like simply going to the store and buying a toy. You do not just get to throw it away once you are done with it and it stops being cute in your eyes
This is a real living thing that has emotions, needs, and wants, not something to be thrown away when YOU are done after YOU entered at commitment to raise and care for this animal.
What’s just as bad as dumping the animal off just anywhere you want, whether it be on the side of the road or in a shelter, is that a lot of these animals end up dying after that. Animals are NOT always adopted and strays are not always picked up. Animals can get put down, run over, tortured, and a list of other things
People should really think about what they are responsible for before they bring an animal into their life
Not to mention that that animal loves you, you are his world, and when you drop him off at the shelter - or worse, in the street - you are abandoning him. He doesn’t know what he did wrong, he thinks you’ll come back, maybe you just dropped him off for a bit and you’ll come back to him.
Not only did you make a commitment, but that animal loves you and throwing them away isn’t just breaking that commitment, it’s throwing away someone who doesn’t understand why you don’t love him anymore and where you went.
This is so important. Animals are NOT toys you just can’t return them because you got bored. Think first before you buy a cute little puppy for your stupid girlfriend or sister or whatever. Okay. This just make me so mad that I can’t keep talking about it. Seriously you have no heart if you do this. Seriously
This shit pisses me off
How could you be so hateful to that poor puppy who loves you
I fucking hate people like this
