In early 2009 I was shooting an ad campaign and catalog for Chef Works at a Bulthaup kitchen showroom. The owner’s two French bulldogs, Gaston and Napoleon, kept wandering onto the set and into the picture. Rather than ask the...
Honor your pet. Be a hero. Save a life.
Immortalize your best friend while helping rescues
Every year millions of cats and dogs enter shelters in the USA. An estimated four millions pets are euthanized every year. That's one death every 8 seconds. Those heartbreaking statistics prompted commercial photographer, Andrew Grant, to act.
The result was Rover - a beautiful coffee table book of heartwarming and soulful portraits of dogs in stunning detail. A timeless tribute to man's best friend that continues to raise meaningful money for rescues and awareness to this tragedy.
Now you can team up with your best friend and join in our effort to help more homeless pets find their way home. Being a hero has never been easier...
Step 1. Honor your pet!
Have your best friend's unique personality captured by Andrew Grant in a studio at one of many Rover tour stops across the country.
Step 2. Be a hero!
Make a donation of $5,000 to one of the many deserving rescues we support. This program has already generated donations of nearly $2,000,000!
Step 3. Save a life!
Your best friend will be featured on a page in the next edition of Rover. Andrew will also photograph and include a homeless pet to overcome the lingering shelter dog stigma and beautifully illustrate that healthy, smart, beautiful and loving purebreds and mixed breeds are available for adoption everywhere.

The perfect luxury gift for pet lovers
Want to give the pet lover in your life an extraordinary and unique gift they'll never forget? Many donors have surprised their loved one's by having their dog "secretly" photographed by Andrew then presenting them with a copy of Rover featuring their dog!
All dogs are welcome
All purebreds and mixed breeds are welcome! Since the goal of Rover is to raise money for rescue dogs and showcase the type of dogs available for adoption, most of the dogs in Rover once lived in shelters or rescues. However, we also strive to convey that approximately 30% of the dogs in rescues are purebreds. We hope this inspire people with a penchant for purebreds to, at the very least, visit a rescue before buying from a breeder or a puppy mill.
Sponsor additional homeless pets – Add $1,000
Andrew will photograph a homeless pet and feature him or her in Rover when you include your dog. An additional homeless pet will be included for each additional $1,000 tax deductible donation you make to a rescue. Not only will you be helping to promote that quality pets are available for adoption, you just might help a pet find its forever home.
Set up at your home - Add $1,000
We will set up the studio and photograph your dog in the comfort of your home for a fee of $1,000. Requires a wide open space measuring no less than 14' x 23'. Please contact us for more details.
National cover dog – Add $50,000 (SOLD!)
Want to make your dog really famous? See your best friend featured on the cover of the nationally distributed Rover book and on two pages when you make a $50,000 tax deductible donation.
The book Ellen DeGeneres made famous
In 2009 Ellen DeGeneres gave Oprah Winfrey a copy of Rover, a huge coffee table book of dogs on her Christmas show. Ellen's support turned a photographer's one-year book project into an effort to reduce the homeless pet population across the country. Andrew has since produced four editions of Rover. Each of the museum quality coffee table books include pets that once lived in a shelter to convey that healthy, smart and beautiful purebreds and mixed breeds are available for adoption everywhere.

Rover to the rescue!
How Rover helps rescues
RoverWorks.org (formerly RoverToTheRescue.com) has generated donations of nearly $2,000,000 for rescues across America. More importantly, we have bridged countless relationships between generous donors and deserving rescues that live on after Rover. We’re proud to be able to offer rescues with an extraordinary and unique opportunity to engage existing donors and to attract new donors to rescues.
We also donate hundreds of copies of Rover, which can be used for fundraising and auction items.
We primarily support organizations with comprehensive spaying and neutering programs already in place. Their efforts provide the most effective way to reduce the homeless pet population. We vet each organization before we advocate for donations.
Would you like to use the unique and extraordinary Rover opportunity to entice your existing to participate in a fun project and to attract new donors in your community? Email us for more information about how we can raise money for your organization.

One of my favorite things to do is to take shelter dogs out of their kennel and spend some time photographing them in the studio. It's a great way to illustrate that there are healthy, smart, beautiful and unique purebreds...
