0003-lisa-prince-fishlerIf you listened to my introduction episode you’ll recognize today’s storyteller as the photographer who first made me aware of animal rescue in general and inspired me to start volunteering.

It’s an overused expression, but we all know that a photo is worth 1000 words, right? Well today’s guest recognized that what a photo says with all of those words could mean the difference between an animal that gets adopted and one that gets left behind.

Lisa Prince Fishler tells us the story behind HeARTs Speak… listen in to hear how it all began.

Photo credit for Lisa and Iggy’s portrait goes to Geoffrey Tischman (he is yet another wonderful HeARTs Speak member!)
