re(fur)bished photography

re(fur)bished photography is an animal-focused photo project that mainly centers around shelter or otherwise "recycled" pets. We try to showcase each animal's individual personality in a photo (or two...or three!).

We believe in positively portraying shelter animals, and do not condone terminology such as "death row," "urgent - dies tomorrow," etc. We also believe that humane societies have already, in a sense, "rescued" these animals. Humane societies often "save" animals from neglectful homes and/or abusive situations, then work with the animals to adopt them out if possible. We do not condone bashing animal control officers, humane societies, shelter staff, or anyone else involved in the humane care of homeless animals.

You can view a sampling of the project below (some of these are up for adoption!). The animals are located at the Thomasville-Thomas County Humane Society (www.thomasvillehumane.org).
