Adobe Fur-tography

The Santa Cruz SPCA along with Portia Shao, our amazing volunteer photographer, were featured in a spectacular promotional video put together by Adobe.  Adobe Elements has launched "Fur-tography", geared toward pet photography and they used US to spotlight how high quality photo's can play a vital role in animal adoption.
