A dog photographer has started a movement to improve the quality of photographs at pet shelters, leading to a massive uptick in adoption rates.
Pet photographer Teresa Berg noticed a major problem with some of the photos at her local dachshund rescue shelter — they were horrible. If you've ever gone looking for a rescue animal through website, you'll know exactly what she found. Out of focus shots taken with crummy compacts or cellphones, often with abysmal lighting and cluttered backgrounds. And let's not even go into what a dog looks like if you photograph them using a flash.
