start seeing black dogs

In 2008, my friend, Heather, started the website Start Seeing Black Dogs, as a resource for rescues and shelters to get and give information about “Black Dog Syndrome” and how to increase their adoption rates. Summed up, Black Dog Syndrome refers to the low adoption and high euthanasia rates of black dogs in shelters. I was honored to photograph Heather and her black dogs {and one chocolate dog} for People Pets a couple of weeks ago. Check out the article here. If you know of any shelters {or anyone!} who could use some of the free marketing provided by startseeingblackdogs.com, please pass the site along, and let’s get more black dogs adopted!
