Flower Power: Adorable Portraits of Pit Bulls Waiting to Be Adopted

 

According to the ASPCA, approximately 1.2 million dogs are euthanized in the United States each year. Sadly, pit bulls make up a notable percentage of them due to their unfair reputation as a scary and dangerous breed.

Photographer Sophie Gamund wants to change that perception in an ongoing series entitled, Flower Power: Pit Bulls of the Revolution. Since starting the project last summer, Gamund has photographed over 150 pit bulls in shelters across the US, adorning them with homemade flower crowns to ‘infuse a softer energy into their imagery’.

To date, 114 of the pit bulls Gamund has photographed have been adopted but there are still many more still hoping to find a forever home. I’ve included a gallery of pit bulls below still waiting to be adopted. Each ‘adopt’ link beneath each dog will take you directly to the dog’s adoption agency.

A 2016 calendar is also available along with prints and posters.

You can find an ongoing and updated (adopted/still available) list of pit bulls Gamund has photographed on her website.
