Abandoned Kittens Are Now Raising Awareness For Pet Adoption, Lookin' Cute Doin' It

These are more than just lovable kittens, they are living reminders of the importance of adoption.

In May, Israel-based photographer Alex Greenshpun and her partner found a box containing five abandoned kittens, according to her post on Behance. They took in the tiny creatures, who couldn't have been more than a few weeks old, and nursed them back to health.

Greenshpun photographed them constantly, and decided to use the photos as a way to draw attention to the need for animal rescue and adoption. So far, three of the five 2-month-old kittens have already been adopted.

"The goal of this photo project is to raise awareness to the beauty and significance of animal rescue and adoption, as well as to the importance of spaying/neutering pets," Greenshpun told The Huffington Post in an email. "There are countless cases of orphaned and abandoned animals each year. Most are not as lucky as our little kittens have been."
