Animals with Disabilities: Pets have a way of being absolutely adorable regardless of their appearances, and award-winning Australian photographer Alex Cearns is out to show the world just that. Cearns is the creative director, photographer and owner of Houndstooth Studio, a photography company that allows people to see their pets photographed “in a new light.”
One of her many incredible animal photo collections is called “Perfect Imperfection,” which features dozens of disabled animals. Her work proves that despite their setbacks, they are still precious and in need of love and affection.
“Social responsibility and philanthropy [are] integral in our work,” Cearns wrote on the studio’s home page. “We are proud our images help make a difference to the lives and welfare of rescued animals.”

“I love every animal I have the privilege of photographing, but those perceived as ‘different’ hold a special place in my heart,” Cearns told Metro. “The tenacity of animals to overcome adversity never ceases to amaze me. They make the most out of life and from them I have learnt so much about always seeing the positive in every situation and never giving up.”
Her gallery features pets with their eyes removed, with only three legs and a few animals with skull injuries. And yet, despite each of their flaws, we can’t help but want to snuggle every one of these precious little animals.
