Nanette Martin is a professional photographer who has set her lens on shelter pets ever since Hurricane Katrina. After photographing many of the stray pets that were left behind, she saw how much impact one quality photo could have on a shelter pet's life, and started Shelter Me Photography. We've partnered with Nanette to bring quality photos to more and more shelters and the pets they help.
Meet four pets who found homes thanks to Nanette's work.
It can often be rough for a pit bull to get adopted, no matter his background or the circumstances that brought him to the shelter. In Scooby's case, it wasn't his fault, and it wasn't related to his personality. Thanks to Nanette's photo and the shelter's avid attention, Scooby managed to find a loving home.
It can be hard to place two littermates in a home together, but for Lavern and Shirley, this wasn't an issue. Nanette's photos quickly drew a loving owner to a shelter to adopt both of them at once.
Puppo had spent five years in a New York shelter without even one visit. After this photo came out, he was adopted within four days.
