Why We Rescue: Happily Adopted Pets With Their New Families Across USA

Photographer Theron Humphrey, together with Purina One, spent a year documenting happily adopted dogs and cats with their new families across the United States. The ‘Why We Rescue’ project aims at changing people’s perception of shelter pets, which the mainstream media usually portrays as having significant health and behaviour problems. “It might surprise you to learn that roughly three out of four people acquiring a new pet aren’t considering adoption from a shelter,” points out the photographer.

The series of story-telling photographs were set to shake off these stereotypes and highlight what it really means to rescue a dog or a cat from their unfortunate destiny in a shelter. The introduction of a shelter pet to a loving family, where the pet often becomes the faithful companion and heart of the home, can beautifully transform the lives of all involved.
