One Picture Saves a Life

Megan Griffo, for Huffington Post, on the power of photography for homeless pets

A terrified dog walks into a rescue shelter. He’s dirty, disoriented and unsure of what’s about to happen. A person he doesn’t know stands over him with a camera, snaps a photo and posts it on an adoption website.

Most likely, no one will call about him.

Liz Baker of Greater Good and photographer Seth Casteel decided to do something about the bevy of sad shelter animal photography. So began One Picture Saves a Life.

The results are amazing. At least for the animals they photograph, a single picture can truly change everything.
