An Arkansas photographer has captured attention for homeless dogs who just need some social media help to find their new homes. Meet Tammy Swarek, who teamed up with the Union County Animal Protection Society, (UCAPS) and dresses up rescue dogs in amazing costumes to highlight their stories and their extraordinary beauty.Tammy Swarek Midnight

According to Mail Online, Tammy’s inspiration came from other dogs dressed up who had been posted on Facebook and other social media outlets. From ever since she could remember, Tammy had been dressing up her own pets.  And now with a more unique spin, Tammy tries very hard to match the costumes with the dogs’ personalities. So from the shelter to a star studded photography studio, Tammy who says part of the reason for her successful project is a form of “therapy,” as she watched her mother deal with Alzheimer’s Disease, the “inner pooch” is captured on camera.

Featured in the most eye-catching array of outfits, ranging from flower pooches to farm dogs,  there is one distinct and beautiful personality for everyone. From the moment the dogs’ photos started appearing on Facebook, adoption offers began to pour in.
