It’s a cruel statistic, but it’s a statistic we all need to hear. Over 3.9 million dogs will end up in animal shelters across the United States every year. 3.9 million. What’s even more tragic is that around a third of those dogs will be euthanized because there isn’t enough dog owners out there willing to adopt these dogs.

There’s hope, however. Organizations all over the country are thinking of creative ways to shed light on this problem to the public. One of these organizations, The Human Society of Utah, decided to take photos of shelter dogs in order to showcase their loving personality.

It’s the organization’s hope that these photos will show potential dog owners that it’s better to adopt a shelter dog in need rather than buy. What all these dogs need is love.
