Kati H.
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
I'm a german artist with a great passion for photography, mainly wolves and dogs, though I also occasionally do environmental and people photography. Another profession of mine is art, be it digital or traditional. I've learned graphic design in a technical college and studied computing science in Ireland. My main focus in comuting science is web-design.

Canon EOS 7D Mark II
• Canon EF 70 - 200mm f/2.8 L USM
• Sigma 150 - 600mm f/5.0 - 6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary
• Sigma 18 - 35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art

Photo Usage:
You can use my photos as long as it is not for commercial purpose (this includes commissions and point commissions, too!). If you want to use them for photo-manipulations, roleplaying games, avatars, as drawing references, or private things that's okay with me. You don't have to note me, but giving credit would be a fair appreciation. And feel free to show me what you do with my photos, I'd love to see it!


Q: Do you work in a wildlife park / with wolves?
A: No, I don't. I'm just a usual zoo visitor with a camera. When I get the chance I pester zoo keepers though, to find out things about the residing animals. That's why I know some things. But it's true that I would love to work with wolves if I could. Well, who wouldn't?

Hey guys!
This journal is actually directed to my german followers, but I think writing it in english can't do harm and I suppose my watchers from other countries would also like to know where the following pictures come from. And maybe they can find a way to help as well, who knows!

After my beloved Sammy passed away and I had to return to Ireland I decided I couldn't bear the monotony of my livestyle I was forced into in Ireland any longer and being without a dog in general. I started volunteering at a Dog Sanctuary right away and this was one of the best descisions ever. Maybe an even better descision then studying in Ireland generally. I'm actually sad I didn't do it earlier. On the downside I had to learn how bad life for dogs can be in Ireland and how backward Ireland is in treating their animals. I would have thought that Ireland would be quite close to Germany with animal welfare and protection, but it's definitely not. It is much worse and those people who are standing up for better animal rights actually claim there's almost no protection at all for animals. Cases of animal cruelty happen on a daily basis and dogs that are not wanted any longer are just thrown out of the front door. As a result strays are roaming the streets of Dublin, puppies as well as older dogs. Other animals suffer as well but I will only focus on dogs right now, because I'm volunteering for a dogs sanctuary. Ponds are nothing more than business here, the more animals they can took in the more money they can make. Sometimes they don't even try to rehome them and just put them down after a few days - no matter if the dog is just a few weeks old puppy. Non-kill shelters are very rare and Sanctuaries (non-profit, no-kill, everything will be done for the animals) like I volunteer for even rarer.

I do know quite well that there are many countries that treat their animals even worse, but I was so shocked, because before I went to Ireland I believed it couldn't be much different there than in Germany. But it is (and not only with animal rights but in general. Living in Ireland made me appreciate my homeland much more). In Germany we have a no-kill policy - NO shelter is allowed to put any animal down as long as it isn't suffering badly or is a major threat to others. We also don't have strays.

Having this told the great lady who's running the sanctuary she asked me if there are sanctuaries in Germany what would take in dogs from Ireland. They actually have a partnership with Sweden and people from swedish ponds com over a few times a year to bring some of their rescue dogs to Sweden - where animals are treated much better and I was told that most ponds in Sweden are empty. The thing is, even though we are much nicer to our animals in Germany we still have crowded ponds. I don't know if any pond or sanctuary would offer even a few places for dogs from Ireland. I actually doubt it, but I promised her to ask and it won't hurt to do so.
If any of my german watchers know a pond/sanctuary, are affiliated with one or volunteers as well, maybe you could ask your charity if they would be willing to take dogs from Ireland.

To those who live in Dublin, if you love dogs or consider of getting one, you should definitely think of paying DogsAid a visit. What they do for the animals (also for cats) is gorgeous and they want so little in return. They are always searching for volunteers. And all of the dogs are so lovable and yearning for human attention. This place will definitely be the only one I'll miss when I return to Germany next month.

Pay a visit to or their site on facebook:…

These are just a few. Almost all dogs came in as strays or were rescued from bad conditions. They all have won my heart.
