Two of the things that the regular readers of Just Something love more are photography and animals, and we are glad to have the opportunity to write about an artist who uses her talent to help homeless dogs find a new family.
Sarolta Bán is a photographer most known for her incredible photo manipulations, often filled with symbolisms and hidden meanings, and now she is using her skills to create incredible pictures that help dogs from all over the world to find a new home.
Another beautiful thing about her project is that she sells these photos, and donates a part of the income to the shelter of the dog portrayed in the picture.
In the gallery below you can see some of the before/after images she posted on her Facebook page and other amazing photos of the dogs she helped in the past.
“Bounder is a senior Lab mix. He has lots of energy, and needs a very secure yard to run and play in. He’s up to date on shots, neutered, and great on a leash. He’s located at the Regional Animal Services of King County in Kent, Washington (USA).”
“Sami is a beautiful, sensitive and lovely young dog. In her shelter in Jumilla she is well known for her acrobatic tricks. She likes to walk around on different things. Sami is compatible with other dogs, obedient and careful. So far she was only taken for a walk outside the animal shelter twice. It would be ideal for her to find a new home with experienced dog owners or a secure and relaxed dog. Sami has not experienced much in her life so far and will learn new things quickly.
Currently she is still afraid to leave the shelter and gets very nervous and afraid when she is to put on the dog harness.”
“Ringo is a very active mutt. He was born in the streets and was rescued when he was 40 days old along with his 2 other brothers (both adopted). Ringo is now 7 months old and is still waiting for a family. He has been vaccinated and neutered.
He is playful and full of energy, but also loves long naps on the lap of loved ones.”
“Jasmine is among those kind of privileged dogs who live in the main office and its surroundings where there is always someone. As well as some stealable food as well, so she put on some weight. Here she quickly became friends with the people, he works hard for caresses, constantly wriggles his butt and loves to chase fleas. She is a real house guardian, if someone comes uninvited into the gate, she tends to catch their ankles. Otherwise she is phenomenal, but harder to make friends with men. We also highly recommend her as a home dog.”
“This is Patti, directly from Thailand.”
Zè and Phebo
“Zé: He is 2 years-old beautiful and smart dog, very sweet and cheerful. Zé was born by accident, as his mother underwent a surgery to be castrated by the State Veterinary Service. However, during the proceeding, the vets stated that she didn’t need the surgery, as they concluded that “she had already been operated before”. Three months later, though, she got pregnant and had Zé and his siblings, Tom and Flora.
Phebo: A castrated half-breed Dachshund of 5 years-old, taken away from the streets. She’s very meek and obedient, really sweet with any person. Loyal, she is always around when her favorite people (and dogs) need help. Phebo waits for a home where she can spoil her new family with all the kindness and care she is able to give. Btw, she LOVES to cuddle. Seriously.”
“Tucker is a big boy and weighs about 100 pounds! He was not walked on a leash before he came to Northwoods, and is just getting used to having a collar on-we practice each day. Tucker requires a patient home that is willing to teach him how to walk on a leash and some other basic manners.”
“Tanya has been homeless her entire life, 7 1/2 years. Abandoned at no-kill shelter in New York at 6 months old, no one has ever come for her until Mr. Bones & Co. pulled her into their rescue program.”
