Man's best friend! What better way to showcase adoptable dogs than by letting their true personalities shine in a photo booth! Often seen as sad, rejected, and behind cold metal bars, it's no wonder people would avoid images of shelter dogs awaiting forever homes. From talented photographer (and now public figure and adoption champion) Guinnivere Shuster comes Shelter Dogs in a Photo Booth, a guaranteed-to-make-you-smile photo book featuring shelter dogs in a brand-new light. Get ready to see the cutest canine portraits you've ever seen! Guinnevere's fantastic photos went viral and have been featured on websites, in magazines, and on television programs all over the world: Good Morning America, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, The Huffington Post, Time, The Daily Mail . . . even celebrities have gotten in on the action: Amy Poehler, Cesar Milan, and Zooey Deschanel have made statements and posts declaring their love of Guinnevere's work. After the adorable and up-for-adoption photos of these furry friends were seen and enjoyed by millions, adoption rates at Utah's Humane Society skyrocketed. The book features 100 dog photo booth style photographs, each accompanied by a short story about the dog's personality, how the dog ended up in the shelter, and the adoption date. A follow-up will conclude the book, with photos of some of them with their new families. A portion of the proceeds of this book will benefit the Humane Society of Utah and Best Friends Animal Society.

 

Review:

By now, most animal lovers have seen or heard of the photos of shelter dogs taken in photo booths.  “Shelter Dogs In A Photo Booth” is a collection of these photos, along with the stories of how they came to be in the shelter and their adoptions.

It’s wonderful to get to see the dogs’ personalities show through.  All too often they cannot show their true nature in shelters, and it causes many wonderful animals to be passed by.  The photos are a true delight and the book will make a great addition to any animal lover’s collection.  It is also a wonderful gift idea for those in your life who have dogs.

An added bonus is that a portion of the proceeds go to the Humane Society of Utah and Best Friends Animal Society.  If you’ve never heard of the latter, it is the home of the Vicktory Dogs who were unable to be adopted for various reasons.  The ones who were adopted went through rehab there and much was learned about how to rehabilitate fighting dogs, which will save many lives in the future.  The work they do is extraordinary.

This review is based upon a complimentary copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
