I have been photographing shelter dogs for a few years, as a volunteer, to help the adoption process. I created Striking Paws, a project about Photography Helping Homeless Pets. Turns out, photography saves lives!

Today I celebrate over 150 dogs I photographed at Animal Haven, a New York shelter, since October 2013.

The serious ones

The ears

The fluff

The melancholic ones

The naughty ones

The underbites

The dreams

The adorable ones

The smiles

The amazing transformations "Before"


More fluff

The low-riders

The unforgettable ones
