Kaye Ness is a photographer in Kansas City. She has always loved animals and has a dog and cat at home that are smothered with love.

In 2012 Travis Patenaude and his wife were blessed to be rescued by a Galgo named Leena. This scared little white Galgo inspired them to start Love Hope Believe Galgo Adoption in 2013. When their group was first starting out, they were lucky enough to have a member of Hearts Speak, Marna Niebergall De Rojas, photograph their adoptable Galgos, and offered him tips to improve his own photography as well. Now he is paying it forward by telling the story of the Hunting Dogs of Spain through his own photography. Travis and his wife have made seven trips to Spain to volunteer at the shelters and have transported 90 Galgos back to the US for adoption.
