This photographer decided to photograph shelter dogs out of their kennels to help potential adopters imagine them in every possible situation. He did this kind and genuine work to help them be adopted quickly and to increase their chances to have better places.
Imagine leaving your friends, family, everyday life, and your home behind. Imagine being abandoned in a place full of weird people, strange smells, odd sounds, and surroundings. Imagine not seeing your family ever again.
This is almost the full experience of a rescue dog that he experiences before he gets rescued. Whatever the circumstances that they have before arriving, they will definitely feel confused, stressed, anxious, and overwhelmed.
Definitely there are shelter volunteers who dedicate their lives in feeding, taking care, and cleaning these animals. However, sometimes they struggle to find enough food to feed those animals. So, when they need to make people adopt these animals, they also struggle to take a proper photo for them to be quickly adopted. So, these amazing people devoted their life to pets in shelters with all the limited resources, time, and budget. There is just no time for taking pictures in a place full of anxious dogs already!

Nowadays, we are living in a virtual world where people are scrolling down more than they do anything. It’s becoming more difficult to stand out. And for shelter animals, standing out can mean a forever home, a loving family, or a life change! It can literally save lives! So, that was the challenge the photographer took to photograph dogs as he knows that people will not stop scrolling down photos online. It may help them get adopted after people see how much they are adorable.
The most important thing is to make the dogs comfortable when they are shooting. Shelter dogs are usually anxious and nervous. Some of them fear other animals and others fear cars and bicycles. The photographer’s aim is to capture a photo that will make potential adopters imagine them in daily situations. Such as a happy dog in the park, or an excited dog for a walk with the owner, and so on. The photographed wanted to remove the image of distressed, lonely, and depressed dog in the kennel. He wanted adopters to see how incredible these dogs can be with them on normal days. They are regular dogs.
