In Russia, the social initiative "Thing of Kindness" and the animal rescue "Happiness in the House" recently launched a collaborative effort named "My guy abandoned me, but I will still adore him."
The basic goal of the initiative is to get people to adopt odd-looking canines. So, with the assistance of photographers Nikita Zhurnakov and Kirill Laptev, the dogs ready for adoption were shot wearing donated clothing to give them a personality based on their experiences before to arriving at the shelter.
"The concept of clothed dogs came up a few years ago (there's an entire Instagram account dedicated to dogs dressed in men's attire), but I never got around to properly implementing such an idea. We took really stunning photos as a result of the team's efforts! Because it is so crucial to locate the appropriate individual, I feel that our friends will finally be able to find a home as a result of these images.
The most difficult aspect of this shoot was not taking all 50 dogs home with me. Of course, the dogs aren't some obedient giant boars, but we were well prepared for the whole session. Some dogs required over 150 shots to acquire the proper photograph, but they didn't grumble and were extremely pleased during the procedure."
