Photographer’s Tails of Loudoun Project Raises $26,000

With the publication of her book, “Tails of Loudoun County,” photographer Ellen Zangla has raised more than $26,500 for two area animal welfare groups. 

         The coffee table book features photos and stories of more than 200 pets, including dogs, cats, horses, and lizards, in historic and scenic locations throughout Loudoun County.

         The book benefits Friends of Loudoun County Animal Services and the Loudoun Community Cat Coalition. Both groups work to end animal homelessness and suffering.

         FLCAS plans to use its share of the money to cover veterinary care for shelter animals in need as well as enrichment items for animals awaiting adoption.

         The Cat Coalition will use the money to support its efforts to provide spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations, flea/tick treatments, and microchips for more than 250 community cats. The funds also will be used to support foster care and socialization for seven litters of rescued kittens, according to President and Executive Director Tom Bove.

         Zangla said giving back to the community is important to her. 

         “I absolutely love my job and am glad that I can use my passion and skills to help animals in need,” she said. “I am truly appreciative of all the support I’ve received for this project, from the many people whose pets I photographed for the book to the generous local businesses who sponsored it. This project has truly exceeded my wildest expectations.”
