“Every shelter animal is a celebrity waiting for its starring role in someone’s home.”

-Steve Sloop, Founder

Celebrities have studio portraits taken for publicity. Companies use photographs to advertise their products. We believe that shelter animals should be treated with the same amount of importance. In today’s digital age, a vast percentage of adopters are searching online to adopt. For many shelter animals, a photograph is a crucial first impression, oftentimes the difference between being adopted or being forgotten.

All photos in our ‘Shelter Stars’ gallery have been taken by shelter staff and volunteers across the nation who have received Shelter Art Foundation equipment and training.
