Over 100 inclusive stock images for animal services organizations were donated by Portsmouth Humane Society after they made an effort to diversify the images they were using to tell the story of their organization’s work in a way that more accurately reflects their community. These images are not exhaustive, but now include two years’ worth of images (updated in June 2022) and we hope they serve as an inspiration for your own organization to invest in how we are showing people and pets in marketing and communications. Do you have images you’d like to share with other organizations and add to this collection? Get in touch!


To learn more about how Portsmouth Humane Society decided to make more diverse and inclusive imagery a priority, watch this 30-minute Marketing Inspiration interview with their Executive Director, Alison Fechino.
