Helped SPCA (Penang) to do a shoot for their 2010 calendar a few months back. Rounded up the cute puppies and strobed them one by one. Was quite a fun session and each puppy took about 3-5 mins to shoot so the whole session lasted just a bit over an hour including setup time.
If anybody is looking for a pet, the first place you should go to should be your local animal shelter. You may also do volunteer work there as it is quite relaxing and fun playing with the doggies :)
