Los Angeles photographer Lori Fusaro has a major soft spot for animals. In addition to being staff photographer for Best Friends Animal Society, she volunteers her time taking photos of rescue pets.

An eye-catching photo shared through social media or posted on a shelter website can really tug at people’s heartstrings. In fact, a beautiful photo is often the key to getting a pet adopted.

Fusaro shared a few of her favorite portraits of rescue pets happy and loved in their new homes — see the gallery above. They are lucky pets indeed!

She also teamed up with journalist Laura T. Coffey to publish My Old Dog: Rescued Pets with Remarkable Second Acts (New World Library, 2015). From celebrity stories (like that of George Clooney’s Cocker Spaniel, Einstein) to everyday people, My Old Dog just might inspire you to adopt an older pet.

“The joy of adopting an old dog absolutely outweighs the fear of losing them too soon,” Fusaro said. “Age doesn’t diminish the love you can share.”
