Could good photography get 100% Animal Adoption rates

Hey Ed,

Vindication for your photographic views on the Adair County Animal Shelter.

I just saw a story on CBS Sunday Morning about how thousands of shelter animals are not being adopted because of poor photography. When the animals are taken out of the cage, cleaned up, put in a "pet setting," and dressed up a little the adoption rate can in many cases go up by a 100% or more.

Excellence is doing everything as good as you can, as fast as you can, as long as you can.

Thanks It's not just a personal issue. Good pet photography, use of available free media could save animals lives, spare the county anymore needless bad publicity, lower euthanasia rates, AND directly affect the county budget in a positive manner. We'd like to have links to the CBS today show.

Interestingly, a preceding segment had Indiana Governor Mitch McDaniels saying that it is amazing how much government we can do without. Liked that. Hope someone will send the link to today's CBS Sunday Morning. -EW
