These cute creatures are looking for a home. How could you say no to Cano?
If you've never thought about owning a pet, you'll do a 180 after seeing—and reading—about the adorable animals up for adoption at the Humane Society of New York. Fashion and celebrity photographer Richard Phibbs took a break from making models look even more beautiful to work with these little furry creatures currently seeking a home and a best friend.
Studies show that animals up for adoption will have a hard time finding an owner if their photographs are taken poorly—with bad lighting and unappealing backdrops. So Phibbs classed up these pups, rabbits and kitties by adding accessories like bow ties and handkerchiefs. The wonderful portraits below show these potential companions for who they really are, and paired with some background about their personalities, it's hopeful they'll find a lovingly place to call home faster than you can say "woof."
