5. Media using: videos, recording sounds, After Effects to make animated examples of Puppy Mills.

6. Tone/mood that I’m going for: something sounds happy, fun and NOT sad. Even it’s sad about Puppy Mills issue, but I don’t want to let people feel pressure and just adopt pets at shelters because they feel pity for them. I make this project to let people understand that where they should go to buy a pet, which is the animal shelters, and if they do that, they actually can stop the Puppy Mill business, which can stop the Puppy Mill Cycle.

7. Storyboard for my big Videos

a. Me: talking about how myself relate to the topic “Pet Adoption” and how I found East Bay SPCA.

b. Interview of people introducing themselves

– East Bay SPCA: volunteers and staffs-Rita Wilds

– Family that have adopted pet: Jess and Midge

d. Issues of Puppy Mills

– Me: transition from shelters to Puppy Mills

– Staffs or Volunteers at East Bay SPCA: talk about Puppy Mills, how Shelters can affect on stopping the cycle of puppy mills.

(Note: make animation video describing puppy mills)

e. Passion of helping animals

– Staffs or Volunteers at East Bay SPCA: why working at the shelter? what is their motivation?

– Family that have adopted pet: why they want to adopt pet at shelter rather than at pet store?

f. Interview: How to help shelters

– Staffs or volunteers at East Bay SPCA: talking about how people could support the shelter.

(Donation, volunteering, foster care parents,etc.)

Volunteer Opportunity

Last Saturday (Aug. 16), I went to the East Bay SPCA orientation for volunteering. And the good news is I’ll start volunteering for the East Bay SPCA in the next few weeks. This is not only for my project, but also I feel great to somehow support the animal shelter. I hope that everything will be fine and I’m really excited for my first shift at the East Bay SPCA.

The East Bay SPCA

This is the shelter that I will choose for my project (if nothing goes wrong). So, I think I should let people know a little more about this great shelter.

The East Bay SPCA has a very long history. In the October 4th of this year, it will celebrate its 14oth celebration. Here is their site: http://www.eastbayspca.org

Their mission is to commit to the welfare of cats and dogs in the communities they serve. They strive to eliminate animal cruelty, neglect and overpopulation by providing programs and education that support people and companion animals.

East Bay SPCA has 3 locations around the Bay Area:

1. East Bay SPCA, Oakland
Spay/Neuter Surgery Center
410 Hegenberger Road
Oakland, CA 94621
Phone: 510-639-7387 

2. East Bay SPCA, Oakland
Adoption Center & Veterinary Clinic
8323 Baldwin Street
Oakland, CA 94621
Adoptions: 510-569-0702

3. East Bay SPCA, Dublin
Adoption Center & Spay/Neuter Surgery Center
4651 Gleason Drive
Dublin, CA 94568
Adoptions: 925-479-9670
Spay/Neuter: 925-479-9674

I will choose the adoption center in Oakland for my project. I just got the email for their approval on my project last night, so I’ll schedule a day to go to their shelter and update some more pictures on my blog later.

Wish me luck ( ;

Cheers.
