OMG, our hearts: Photographer dresses up abandoned dogs to help them get adopted

If you’re in the market for a canine companion, there are a quite a few factors to consider before adopting a dog, like which breed works best with your zodiac sign or how the dog looks when dressed up in an adorable outfit. If you can’t quite imagine what color tie brings out the hue in your potential pooch partner’s eyes, Arkansas photographer Tammy Swarek has you covered.

According to Uproxx, Swarek is on a mission to help abandoned dogs find new homes by dressing them up in outfits because if clothes make the man, they certainly couldn’t hurt in this case, right?

Well, of course not because LOOK AT THIS PRECIOUS FACE:




Apparently, using spiffy duds to attract potential adopters has worked wonders. Swarek told Barcroft TV that the project that aims to enhance the connection between the dogs and potential pet owners caused an immediate increase in adoption applications.

Additionally, Swarkek hopes to change the general perception of shelter dogs as diseased or less worthy and encourages pet owners “to choose a shelter over a breeder or pet store.”

From treating rescue dogs to Starbucks to dressing them up in adorable outfits, we so appreciate animal lovers using their creativity to find loving homes for our furry faves.
