Doggy Glamour Shots!

7 Feb

We’ve all seen those heart-breaking photos of shelter dogs and cats cowering in the back of their kennels on animal rescue websites. I’m sure the sad the photos compel some people to adopt, but it seems that happy and more polished photos are helping find homeless pets their fur-ever homes!

The Humane Society of New York enlisted a fashion photographer (Richard Phibbs) take glamour shots of their available animals, instead of just showing them in their cages or dog runs. The photog has done three different shoots, and the first time, the shelter saw a 50% increase in adoption applications.  The second time, it was 75%.  About 60% of the animals he recently photographed were adopted.

Check out some of these amazing photos:
