Animal Shelter Portraits

Photographer Mark Ross has captured some truly beautiful, and touching, photos of animals abandoned at kill shelters. The book, Animal Shelter Portraits, captures just a small glimpse of what our furry friends experience in shelter situations. The photos in the book made me want to reach out and save each one of them.

The faces say it all, the sadness of being at a shelter, the hope that maybe there will be a second chance for a happily ever after. From dogs to cats, kittens, and even birds and rabbits, there are all kinds of animals to be found at shelters. The book is a great reminder that our decision to adopt them is the difference between life and death.

I have 4 copies of Animal Shelter Portraits to share with 4 lucky readers. If you would like a chance to win a copy, just leave a comment on this post before midnight on April 6th. The winners will be contacted by email.

    I’ve adopted several dogs and cats over the years from our local animal shelter and unfortunately this could be a very sad book but also a reminder of the many years of love my adopted pets gave to my family.

    Congratulations on spreading the word about this book. I am the Executive Director of a non profit rescue in Canada. We also operate an animal food bank and have a lending library of books related to domestic animals. This will be a worthy addition and I shall source out several more copies to sell at our storefront “Beverly C’s Critter Connections” that enables us to help fund our organization.

    Bye … Janet
