What if pet shops use its exhibitors to put animals for adoption?

According to the World Health Organization, there are an estimated 30 million dogs and cats abandoned in Brazil. All waiting to get adopted. Due to this issue, the country’s shelters are overcrowded. Yet, most people still prefer to overpay for an animal than adopting one. To decrease this problem the Priceless Pets project was created.

Reptiles – Life On White

1
Most probably wouldnt think of snakes, spiders and lizards as beautiful animals – but these photographs could change some minds. The images show the reptiles seemingly playful sides, from a gleeful looking Budgetts frog, a cheeky leopard sticking out its tongue at the camera and a stack of four colourful iguanas. Contrasted against a white background and shot with a Canon EOS 5D Mark 2 and macro lens, photographer Mickael Leger really made sure they could be seen in all their glory. The photographer and Zookeeper, 28, from Dammarie-les-Lys, France has always had a passion for these less-favoured, but actually incredible intelligent and interesting, animals and wants other people to change their minds. Here: Iguanas. (Photo by Mickael Leger/Caters News)

Beautiful Bald Cats

A photographer has captured the bizarre beauty of sphynx cats in a series of intriguing portraits. Creative Alicia Rius snapped them from different angles showing off their unusual flesh, colourings and bones. In the images the cats can be seen curiously playing, observing their surroundings and even grooming themselves. Alicia first photographed a sphynx in 2013 but it wasnt until spring this year she further explored the breed. The cats belong to different girls who participated in the project, who Alicia met through Facebook after reaching out to Sphynx owners. The photographer, who lives in Santa Monica, California, USA, admits she chose sphynx cats because she is drawn by their alien look. (Photos by Alicia Rius/Caters News)
