Combat Black Dog Syndrome worldwide; a portion of all proceeds from Black Dog Project will be donated to black dog rescue.
One of Tumblr's most viral blogs of 2014, the Black Dogs Project is a stunning photo series by animal photographer Fred Levy. Known as "Black Dog Syndrome" in animal shelters and rescues, it refers to the unfortunate phenomenon that black dogs are frequently the LAST dogs to be adopted and the FIRST dogs to be euthanized in rescue shelters. Animal photographer Fred Levy couldn't believe that it was true, so he began talking with shelters. Not only does the phenomen exist, but he discovered it's an epidemic. Levy decided to turn his camera lens to black dogs, showing the world how beautiful they truly are. He called the photo series, The Black Dogs Project, and the stunning photographs have been shared worldwide, spreading awareness and attention to the problem. A portion of all proceeds for Black Dogs Project will be donated to black dog rescue.
Don't you forget about me...Animal photographer Fred Levy was with his own dog in the local dog park when he first heard about "Black Dog Syndrome," the phenomenon that black dogs are frequently the FIRST dogs to be euthanized and the LAST dogs to be adopted in rescue shelters. After talking with shelters all across the country, he quickly learned that this was not just a random phenomenon. It was an epidemic. With camera in hand, Levy decided to showcase the beauty and tenderness of black dogs everywhere. His photograph series became known as "Black Dog Project," and awareness of this condition in shelters has begun spreading like wildfire.
