Every week thousands of abandoned dogs and cats are picked up from city streets and put into shelters, where they wait for people to adopt them. Those lucky enough to find a home leave the kennels within a couple of days; those who do not are euthanized. In Animal Shelter Portraits, photographer Mark Ross turns an unflinching eye on the unfortunate animals stranded at kill shelters. Animal Shelter Portraits provides deeply compassionate and haunting portraits of our furred friends.
