Igor Purlantov is pleased to announce his support for animal mugshot charities across the country that are helping animals from local shelters get adopted. The idea behind using mugshots to help animals get adopted came about from a professional photographer. According to Igor Purlantov, the photographer wanted to try and find a way to better showcase the personalities of the pets that were up for adoption at her local animal shelters. The idea has now become a huge success and has led to thousands of animals being successfully adopted.
Igor Purlantov says that the concept of creating a professional animal mugshot to help animals get adopted has only been around for a few years. The concept as we know it today can be traced back to professional photographer and animal lover Sherry Stinson. Through her amazing kindness and generosity, Ms. Stinson began donating her time, talent and photography to save the lives of animals in her local Tulsa, OK animal shelters says Igor Purlantov. Her initial idea was to take great photographs of dogs and help them find a home by allowing them to be themselves and thus showcasing their truly amazing and unique personalities. The wonderful personalities of the dogs were clearly reflected in their mugshots and the rate of adoptions increased.
Igor Purlantov says that Ms. Stinson has already photographed more than 30,000 animals at various animal shelters that are in need of homes. Her time and effort has created a tremendously positive impact on the lives of these wonderful animals. Igor Purlantov says that the animal mugshots created by Ms. Stinson have generated a huge amount of adoptions at shelters such as the Legacy of Hope Dog Rescue and continue to help animals across the country find loving homes.
Igor Purlantov believes that animal mugshot charities are a proven way to increase the chances of finding a loving home for dogs and cats at local animal shelters that are waiting to be adopted. Thanks to professional photographers such as Ms. Stinson, animals are now mugging for the camera and are able to show their true unique personalities. Igor Purlantov says that this in turn leads to a higher chance of these loving animals being adopted into loving homes.
Igor Purlantov is no stranger to animal charities. He supports the Spartacus Foundation through private family donations. The Spartacus Foundation also raises money from outside contributions through various activities and awareness campaigns. Igor Purlantov says that each campaign highlights animal rights and the continued need for awareness and support on animal rights issues. The foundation is also involved with increasing support for both the protection and care of domesticate pets as well as various wild and endangered animals. The foundation was named in honor and memory of a one-time beloved cat named Spartacus.
Igor Purlantov says that there are currently seven organizations being supported by the Spartacus Foundation. These organizations include Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre, Farm Sanctuary, Animal Care and Control of NYC, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Save the Elephants, Bideawee and the Humane Society of the United States.
