Puppy Tales Our Giving 1 scaled

Since the beginning, it’s been our mission to make a paw-sitive impact. Through our gorgeous photography of dogs and through helping pet parents live their most pawsome lives, of course.

But beyond that too.

We’ve always supported many local organisations. We’ve now taken this a step further by becoming carbon negative and a business for good with global and local impacts.

Global Giving

As we’ve travelled we’ve become increasingly aware and saddened by the impacts of climate change and of people on the environment. Glaciers in Svalbard that are becoming significantly smaller. Bushfires that have erased beautiful forests we’ve photographed in like the Sugar Pines. Plastics that have washed up on pristine beaches we’ve camped on (in too many places around Australia).

2022 is the year we decided to do more. And we continue that this year.

Every time we photograph a dog, something pawsome happens around the world!

Through partnering with B1G1, we are committed to playing a part in the global community’s effort to protect the planet we live on; take action on climate change; care for dogs, animals and wildlife; and encourage entrepreneurship & economic growth in developing countries.

Our Giving Tales

Puppy Tales’ Giving Impacts include

  • We operate Carbon Negative – that is we offset more than we use in our home/home office, travels, business and personally. 
  • Planting trees, supporting reforestation and saving rainforests. We plant trees following every photo session and for every copy of Dog Tales of Australia sold (printed & digital).
  • Providing feed and medical care for street dogs and rescued animals.
  • Saving and caring for wildlife
  • Providing loans, training & equipment to give others in business the opportunities we’re lucky to have.
  • … just to name a few!
