In Baldwin, California, the cries of a frightened blind Siberian husky echoed through the halls  of the Baldwin Animal Shelter. The senior pup howled in confusion and loneliness – where was her family and why were there so many strangers? john-hwang-husky-2

And then John Hwang, a frequent volunteer and photographer so often capturing the most emotional moments of shelter dogs in captivating pictures, offered this sweet dog his gentle hand. John describes the dog’s reaction:

“Even though she was blind, I saw in her eyes a pleading for love and assurance. When I gently placed my hand on her face, she became calm and closed her eyes. She quietly rested her head on my hand, and for a brief time she found solace from her cold, lonely kennel.”
