Johannesburg, South Africa (16 November 2021) – Emma O’Brien is a portrait photographer specialising in human and animal photography. She is a champion for animal rescue and decided to use her talent to promote some underrated shelter animals.

Emma loves photographing black shelter animals. After doing some research, she found that black shelter animals have the slowest rate of adoption and the highest rate of euthanasia. The last time we featured Emma, she had asked rescue pet owners who had adopted black shelter animals if she could photograph their happy faces. The hope was to try to help boost their adoption rates in South Africa.

The most recent photoshoot was for CLAW (Community Led Animal Welfare) to promote their November dogs up for adoption. Emma takes incredible images and we adore the adoptees for this month.

CLAW (Community Led Animal Welfare) has been phenomenal in caring for animals during the pandemic (and always). People lost incomes and had to focus on the day to day meals, animal needs became a second priority, but at CLAW, they made sure to get food into the most desperate communities.

They have also continued to find loving homes for the animals in their care. If you are looking to adopt, this is the post for you. If you are unable to and still want to help out, you can reach to offer food or monetary donations, and you can even volunteer your time and skills, like Emma does with her photography. To find out how you can help, reach out here.

Take a look at some of the pups up for adoption and if you want to see even more, check out the full album here. Each photo shares a little information about the pups.
