Rescued Dogs Dressed Up In Sophisticated Outfits, Floral Crowns To Get Adopted


Rascal, and her brother Petey, were abandoned as pups near the railroad tracks in Union County, Arkansas. She is a pit bull cross and approximately 6 months old, in Arkansas, United States. These canine portraits will make any dog lover’s day – and they’re helping to get sheltered pups adopted at the same time. Kind-hearted photographer Tammy Swarek came up with the idea of dressing up rescue dogs to draw attention to their stories and help potential owners personally connect with them.

Tammy, from Arkansas, drew her inspiration from Facebook after spotting another portrait project for sheltered animals. So she contacted her local dog shelter, the Union County Animal Protection Society (UCAPS) and has worked closely with shelter manager Tanja Jackson ever since. Tammy now makes headshots of every dog at UCAPS.

“One of the key things I wanted to showcase with dressing the dogs up is their personality. I really wanted to make them look like people, and I want somebody to see that picture and have some type of a connection with the dog that they wouldn’t ordinarily if it was shut in a cage. They get to see the animal in a different light and some of the dogs that wouldn’t have any interest at all have had a dozen applications each,” she shares.
