You Won’t Believe These Dogs Are Wearing Costumes Made From Trash

A dog photographer from Baltimore, Maryland put together a series of puppy portraits featuring rescued and adopted pit bulls to help raise breed awareness and funds for a local nonprofit dog rescue rescue.

The photographer, J.B. Shepard, said that the goal of his series Paper Hats was “to show that all anyone or anything needs to shine is a second chance”. To demonstrate that he raided his recycling bin for materials and designed elaborate headdresses and collars for rescue dogs.

Regardless of what he made the costumes from, we think his Paper Hats are adorable.
