Dorchester Paws Partners with Selfie Addict Studio to Help Long-Term Shelter Dogs Get Adopted



Dorchester Paws recently sent ten adoptable dogs to the Selfie Addict Studio of Summerville to get their photos taken. In partnership with the studio and Licked Pet Photography, the hope was to shine a light on those longer term residents who are sitting in the shelter and are at risk of shelter deterioration.

Since the shoot, two dogs have already been adopted based on the photos. However, the following dogs are still searching for their forever homes:

  • INKY: 65 days in care, 2-years-old*
  • CREED: 60 days in care. 3-years-old*
  • DUKE: 50 days in care, 7-years-old
  • GAVIN: 60 days in care3-years-old*
  • NYLAH: 45 days in care, 4-years-old*

(*looking for urgent fosters and/or adopter)

“We at Selfie Addict Studio LOVE all animals, especially dogs, which is why it was important for our studio to be pet friendly,” said Kristina & Julie, Owners of Selfie Addict Studio. “We welcome all pets at no additional cost. We absolutely adore Dorchester Paws and what they do for adoptable animals — it was a no-brainer to partner with them. We hope that this event helps these precious pups find a fur-ever home.”

If you want to meet the dogs in person, you can stop by the Selfie Addict Studio during Summerville Dream’s Third Thursday Event on March 15th at 5:30 pm.

From now until March 18th, all adoptable animals at Dorchester Paws will have their adoption fees reduced. Each adopter can pick a coin out of the “Pet of Gold” bucket. Each coin will have a specially priced fee allowing adopters to pick their price.

Each adoption also comes with:

  • A free health exam waiver that allows adopters to use within the first 10 days of adopting
  • 30 days of Trupanion Pet Insurance
  • Free week trial of Good Pup Virtual Training
  • An animal that is spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, on monthly preventatives & vetted
  • 30 Days of free 24/7 Telehealth that can be used for any pet in your home

Plus, from now until March 18th, the public can share the social media posts that Dorchester Paws made on their Facebook and Instagram accounts for a chance to win a night out experience, for four people, at the Selfie Addict Studio (a value of $120).
