Volunteer Spotlight | Jeanne Taylor

Volunteering at an animal rescue is transformative, life-saving work. 

Dorchester Paws volunteers contribute to our organization in many ways and we offer many opportunities for people to get involved, including dog walking, fostering, donation sorting, and more. We encourage everyone to find a way to use their skill sets to volunteer at Dorchester Paws. Some people organize, others clean, and some get to be creative. One of the animal-lovers who helps us at Dorchester Paws is Jeanne Taylor. 


While during the day, Jeanne is the award-winning photographer of Jeanne Taylor Photography, the animal shelters of Charleston know her for her amazing pro-bono work with our animals. “I am proud to say that over the last several years, I have photographed adoptable animals reaching into the tens of thousand snow, across a number of different rescues in both Virginia and South Carolina”


Jeanne Taylor is the dog-mom to two Catahoula Leopard dogs, rescues Roux and Gracie, and those two are just the beginning of her love and heart for the four-legged creatures. “As far as pets go, well, it’s always been about the pets for me. It’s not an add-on service, it isn’t supplemental. It’s my priority, my specialty and my niche.” 


Since working with our animals at Dorchester Paws, we’ve been able to see an elevated portrayal of our animals, specifically Jeanne helped change the game for our cats.
