Official Opening of Humane Society Silicon Valley

The brand new site of Humane Society Silicon Valley is hosting its grand opening event this weekend. As their event photographer, I had the opportunity to document the opening ceremony with delight and with lots of sweat (the valley was at 91 degrees).

Christine Benninger, the President of HSSV, shared her words of appreciation and encouragement to all the attendees.

How long can dogs pay attention to speeches?

Some awesome donors who have helped to make this 25-million project come true. See even the dogs smile!

Generosity. Talent. Time. Love. Smile. Do what you can to give back to the community.
