Photographer Gets Dogs Adopted With Stunning “Cones of Fame”
These pups may not have found their respective forever homes if it weren’t for the ingenuity of Erin Einbender.
Erin is a photography student at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago, Illinois – and she is a self-proclaimed dog fanatic.
The 30-year-old student knew that she wanted her final portfolio project to somehow be canine-related; so, she hit the craft store, spent $200 on colored feathers, glitter, and rhinestones, and she got to work.
For her photography final, Erin redesigned “cones of shame” that dogs wear after they’ve undergone surgery into “cones of fame”. She figured that by transforming those sad, plastic shapes into fun and fancy crowns, it would make dogs feel less ashamed.
Additionally, since dogs are made to wear the cones after they have been spayed or neutered, Erin believed that the cones would raise awareness about the importance of getting dogs fixed.
And it makes them more likely to get adopted when they look so cute and colorful.
