Shannon Johnstone's Landfill Dogs

Raleigh, NC-based photographer Shannon Johnstone has published her book Landfill Dogs, portraits of dogs who would make great pets but who are incarcerated in shelters and -- unless they are rescued -- are on the way to the landfill. 

This book documents the tragedy of the careless overpopulation of dogs that results from our thoughtless treatment of dogs as property, as well as celebrating the infinite variety of joyful dogginess. 

Johnstone loves dogs, and is a genius at capturing their spirit. This book is for dog lovers, and lovers of stunning images of our canine best friends.

You can get the book here. Ten dollars from the sale of every book goes to Have a Heart, a fund that provides treatment for heart worm disease to shelter dogs.

  3. Dogs will address our desires for society and feeling and that they ar thought-about as presumably the simplest different to having a person's ally. Dogs have a singular compatibility to humans, keeping their masters happy and showing emotion healthy for years to return. http://dogsaholic.com/training/best-therapy-dogs.html
