The Manchester and Cheshire Dogs' Home required a document that outlined the positive work the organisation had been doing in and around the Manchester and Cheshire community. They had a new initiative that tackled not only the welfare of stray and abandoned dogs but also the causes of abandonment, through offering training, education and support, and working with owners to help keep dogs in a loving home. The report will also help to encourage people to donate and support the charity. In order to strike a chord with the public and get them to relate to the plight of the dogs, we drew parallels with the suffering of human homelessness and destitution. The photographic stories give the dogs an almost human characteristic and, in turn, can be linked to the new initiatives that the dogs' home is implementing.
