The Orange County Regional History Center (Facebook | Website) is making use of its massive collection of archived photography to support its operations during the pandemic in a fun and unexpected way.

The museum launched its new Pet Portrait initiative on National Pet Day, April 11, where for a minimum donation of $25 you can have an image of your pet added to a historic photograph from the digital collection.

You can feature your pet in one of two ways; “Historic Spy” mode where your pet simply becomes part of the story in the photograph or “Historical Vignette” where it looks like your pet is the center of the story taking place.

Click HERE if you’re interested and you’ll receive a detailed email about how to submit five high-resolution photographs of your pet to work from.
