Fashion and portrait photographer Richard Phibbs believes photographs can change, inspire, and motivate. Since 2012, Phibbs has donated his services to the Humane Society of New York to create portraits of dogs up for adoption to help find them "forever homes". The best of his photographs are featured in a new publication, "Rescue Me" (Aperture, 2016), along with the story of each dog on its journey from often shocking circumstances of abandonment and rejection, through rescue and the joy experienced in the new homes these pictures helped them find.

Phibbs' photographs are far more than dog portraits; they are heartwarming stories for animal lovers all over the world.

That is so heartbreaking. To see such a beautiful dog, expressing so much weariness and sad mistrust makes me want to cry :(

He's so stoked at the idea of a nice loving family, and not being kept in a cage. I wish him all the love in the world

God love it, you can tell hew was abused and put into fights, more than likely..hate seeing any dog without a family to love it. Always said if I came into a lot of $$$ I'd work hard to help these furbabies
