9781493025091: Finding Shelter: Portraits of Love, Healing, and Survival

The healing, beauty, and joy of the animal shelter system

Without volunteers, our nation’s animal shelter system simply would not exist. Volunteers speak for those that cannot speak, pick up the pieces for abandoned animals that have been let down by previous owners or unfortunate circumstances, and do whatever it takes to heal the deepest of wounds.In Finding Shelter, award-winning photographer Jesse Freidin shows the softer side of this story. He witnessed firsthand how many of the volunteers were able to mend their own emotional hurts with the love the shelter animals gave back to them, and how the power of these relationships transforms shelters into places where humans and animals can heal together. This realization propelled him to take a two-year journey across the country to document the tenderness and healing, beauty and joy he encountered within the shelter system. The result is a heartwarming inspiration for people to look differently at how to save shelter pets. In Finding Shelter, Freidin sparks a new discussion about animal rescue and what it feels like to truly love an animal.

Review:

“Jesse's portraits beautifully capture the unconditional love between people and their pets. Being in love with four shelter mutts right now, I love that the animals in this book are rescues. If you ever need a pick-me-up, just page through these photos. It's truly uplifting to see joy, friendship, and the best of humanity, including Jesse's work.” –Kristin Bauer, star of True Blood

People who work in animal shelters are a special breed. In Finding Shelter Jesse Freidin gives us more than just beautiful portraits of these heroes; he gives us a glimpse of the kindness and compassion that leads one to this work. (Cyrus Mejía, Co-Founder, Best Friends Animal Society)

Images of homeless dogs have become, unfortunately, an all-too-familiar sight. Finding Shelter offers a new point of view, and uncovers the relationship that develops between a rescue dog and a volunteer. In the same way that dogs rely on human generosity, we turn to abandoned animals for our own sense of love and security. Candid, engaging, vulnerable... looking at these images, we find ourselves reflected back. And that’s just what a great portrait does. (Marta Roca, Marta Roca, creative director, Four and Sons Magazine)

Finding Shelter tells the unsung story of shelter volunteers and their symbiotic relationship with animals in a beautiful, new way. Freidin captures the often thankless work of caring for and loving an animal, only to hopefully send it off to a permanent home. Your heart will break and burst while flipping through the book’s pages and by the end of it, you’ll have learned something new about the human capacity—and need—for love. (Kate Bratskeir, journalist, The Huffington Post and Mic)

These soulful portraits remind us what it is to be human, and to share our love with animals. Jesse Freidin captures these shelter heroes brilliantly. (Cameron Woo, publisher of The Bark)
