During the summer holidays, while all the other college students were having fun and relaxing, a young student photographer named Maggie Epling decided to use this time to good use.
After learning that good photographers play a big role in adopting animals, she decided to contact a local shelter to see if they needed free help.
They were very grateful and, of course, accepted Maggie’s help.
The young photographer decided to focus on black animals. Because, due to some stereotypes, they are less likely to be adopted than animals of other colors.
Black cats and dogs are at greater risk of euthanasia, than any other animals.
Maggie has been photographing black cats and dogs for a very short time. But the shelter is already seeing a significant increase in adopters.
The shelter receives a huge number of calls from those who want to adopt exactly those pets who posed for Maggie’s portraits.
Most of the animals in Maggie’s portraits have already been adopted.
“When I came to the shelter today, the workers ran up to me and said that their visitors come with my photos and say that these portraits made them come to the shelter,” Maggie proudly states.
