Photographer Takes Portraits of Black Shelter Cats to Help Them Get Adopted

Casey Christopher, a 31-year-old photographer, has made it her mission to help the black cats at the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter find new homes. She’s been volunteering at the shelter twice a week, photographing its feline residents — and has suspected that black cats have a harder time getting adopted because they’re harder to photograph. "You just can't see the black cats as well, especially not when they're in a dark cage," she said. So, she’s been taking them out of their cages to take their pictures in better light — and it’s resulted in some great photos. — See more photos at Today
