Culver's Fusaro Is The Photographer For New Book


Lori Fusaro

Lori Fusaro of Culver City has teamed up with Laura T. Coffey for an article called "My Old Dog" in the Paws For Charity Magazine along with a new book. Fusaro is the photographer for the book.

"MY OLD DOG: Rescued Pets with Remarkable Second Acts," is due to be released by New World Library in September 2015. The book will share success stories that show how blissful retirement can be for older dogs that get rescued, and how life-changing senior dog adoption can be for the humans who do the rescuing.

Lori Fusaro is a dedicated advocate for homeless animals that she's been using her photographic skills to help them for more than a decade. She is a regular at overcrowded animal shelters in the Los Angeles area, where she's donated hours of her time photographing dogs and cats to increase their chances of getting adopted.

Lori works as a staff photographer at Best Friends Animal Society-Los Angeles and runs her own business, Fusaro Photography, whose clients include DreamWorks Studios, Paramount Pictures and many animal-rescue organizations, including BAD RAP, Guide Dogs for the Blind, K9 Connection, and Angel City Pit Bulls.

She also serves on the advisory council for HeARTs Speak, a group that connects artists with the animal-welfare community.

Lori has an uncanny ability to capture the personality and spirit of each animal she photographs. Just like people, some dogs are goofy and gregarious, while others are shy and quiet - and a Lori photo immediately helps you to sense what a dog is like. It's easy to see why Lori has been named Best Pet Photographer by Los Angeles HOTLIST for five consecutive years and has earned many other awards, including Top Portrait Photographer for 2008 and 2009 by FOX 11 Los Angeles KTTV-TV and 2010 Readers' Choice Award Winner from Tails' Pet Media Group

She is a former editor of the Culver City News.

Coffey is a self-avowed dog nut and a writer, editor, and producer for, the website of NBC's TODAY Show. A journalist with more than two decades of experience, Laura has written and edited hundreds of high-profile human-interest stories for since 2008.
