Cutest Dogs: Rescue Dogs Pose for the Cutest Photo Shoot You’ve Ever Seen

With the help of professional photographer, workers at the Humane Society of Utah recently came up with an ingenious way of helping some of their four-legged friends find forever homes.

They placed some of their harder-to-adopt animals in a photobooth to capture the dogs’ winning personalities on camera.

What they recorded was absolutely priceless!

The staff shared the pictures via the company’s Facebook and Instagram pages and we’re delighted to report that most the rescue dogs were quickly adopted.

To help improve the situation, the Humane Society of Utah made a series of whimsical, passport-style portraits featuring their adoptable dogs.

Her goal was to capture every pup’s actual personality; both the serious and the playful sides.

“This photo shoot […] is a much better way of presenting them as opposed to the sad dog behind the metal bars,” Shuster said.

  1. What a remarkable idea ! It’s a beautiful way to show how the personalities differ and the breeds are awesome. If I were not a Cat person (she’s watching. Must be subtle about what I am writing.) She and I watched these pictures and I was just taken. Ms. Shuster is a love for coming up with this idea. She’s an angel. And, what terrific pictures. She was right- a sad dog in a cage breaks my heart. My kitty is a rescue and we’ve been taken with her from the very beginning. Rescue, adopt or donate to help these babies.

  2. Love this,most shelters only take intake pictures which dogs are in shocked after being dump by their family,not helpful in adoption,better pictures better chances of forever homes
