Photographer Theron Humphrey is known for his dog-focused photography projects, so it makes sense that he joined up with Purina One to create 'Why We Rescue.' This heart-warming series focuses on people and their rescued pets, showing viewers how adopting an animal in need can make a difference. These shots feature cats and dogs of all shapes and sizes posing playfully with their loving human counterparts.

Research shows that most people looking to acquire a new family pet don't even consider adopting animals from shelters. As an animal lover, Humphrey hopes to change that by raising awareness and reminding potential pet owners that they can dramatically improve the quality of life for cats and dogs in shelters.

These adorable photos prove that a loved animal is a happy animal. Stats for Adopted Animal Photography Trending: Older & Average
