These images were taken during my time volunteering at Goofy, a shelter for bunnies and guinea pigs
     in Oldenzaal, the Netherlands. Through photographing these animals, my aim was to show their personalities,
     to give a face to these animals that were no longer wanted or could no longer be cared for. And in doing so,
     giving them a better chance at finding a new home. Goofy has since been closed, but there are many more
     shelters like it and they are often over full. It is so easy to buy small animals and often there is a lack of
     knowledge about their needs. Research is important when deciding whether to take in a pet, and please
     consider to adopt at your local shelter, because look at these lovely faces!
