There’s a dog with a broken jaw about 375 miles away at an animal rescue in Arizona. He has been there for almost 2 years. He was kicked in the face by a neighbor, then placed at a shelter under a court order for 60 days until the dispute between the neighbors could be settled in court. His owner never came to pick him up. He was facing euthanization until someone took him to the no kill rescue in Phoenix. He has a crooked smile and is self self conscious when someone looks at his face. I’m about 6 hours away from going to get him to join with my 95lb Great Dane Lab that I rescued a few months ago.
If you couldn’t tell already, I’m one of those dog people – as is Hungarian photographer and photo manipulator, Sarolta Bán. Sarolta is well known for her fantastical landscapes and Photoshop composites, shown in galleries around Europe. She will sometimes layer over 100 images just for one composite. Her meticulous work has garnered numerous accolades and over 100k fans on Facebook alone. Sarolta is now using her skills for a new project to raise awareness for abandoned pets who need homes.
Abandoned dogs sadly have really few chances to appear on a photo that will help them get out of the shelter. A photo that stands out from the crowd, and ‘speaks’ to a person. I would really like to help sheltered animals, and for sure, a good picture can be worth a thousand words.
For the project, “Help Dogs with Images,” Sarolta has asked her fans to share a photo of a dog, cat, or other animal that has no home. She will then turn the images into photo montages to hopefully increase their visibility and chance to find a forever home. The future owner will get a free print of the image. The project ends mid April.
