Adoptable Flower-Loving Pets at Worcester County Humane Society
Recently, I volunteered at the Worcester County Humane Society to help take photographs of the shelter dogs and cats that would allow their true beauty to shine. I created ten different flower crowns and floral collars for the dogs and cats to wear during a photo shoot. With the help of W.C.H.S. volunteers, we photographed all of the dogs at the shelter and some of the cats creating gorgeous portraits in hopes that it will help to get them adopted.
Many shelter dogs are thought to be harsh, violent, or riddled with issues. The idea behind the flower crown photo shoot was to break that stereotype and create images of these dogs in a soft, more feminine, more lovable light.
Once the flower crowns and floral collars were placed on each dog, their personalities shined. It was almost like the dogs were smiling at us because they were happy to be dressed up in fresh flowers. I genuinely think that these dogs and cats realized how special they were when they modeled the floral creations and had their photos taken.
