Flagpole Photographers Camera Club, Sandra Lynn Photography and Newtown Cultural Arts Commission have joined together to present images of the dogs and cats available for adoption from Newtown Animal Shelter in an effort to spur adoptions.

The photographs, which will be replaced as animals are adopted, and others become available, will be in a permanent location in Newtown Municipal Center, located at 3 Primrose Street. The Adoptable Animal Gallery will be near the southern entrance to the building, off Simpson Street.

The four dogs and 12 cats currently available for adoption were photographed by professional photographer Sandy Schill, of Sandra Lynn Photography, who donated her services. Ms Schill is also a member of Flagpole Photographers.

Accompanying commentary on the animals was done by Laura E. Lerman, chairman of Newtown Cultural Arts Commission. Rhonda Cullens, of The Flagpole Photographers Camera Club, coordinated the project.

The Newtown Animal Control Center is located off Trades Lane on the Fairfield Hills Campus. An appointment can be made to view prospective pets by calling Animal Control Officer Carolee Mason at 203-426-6900.
