NEW YORK—Fashion photographer Richard Phibbs has found a way to make taking glamor shots of cute animals into a good cause. People are more likely to bring animals home from shelters if they have appealing photos, so Phibbs stages portraits of cats and dogs from the Humane Society of New York. Head to Paper for a full gallery of his work, and do note that every single animal in the slideshow is currently up for adoption. [Paper Magazine]
