For a few lucky dogs, the dreaded cone of shame is no more.
In its place is the Cone of Fame, a beautifully decorated cone courtesy of artist and animal center volunteer Erin Einbender.
Einbender began her Cones of Fame project to help dogs get adopted at Chicago’s One Tail at a Time, as well as to highlight the importance of spaying and neutering pets a cone-worthy procedure for furry friends.
After she and volunteers designed and crafted the stylish cones, she photographed adoptable pups at One Tail at a Time wearing them. For example, here’s Ellie wearing the “Bubblegum” model.
So far, Einbender’s effort have paid off all her initial dog models have since found new homes.
“Be Free” – Miguel- UPDATE: Adopted!! is a volunteer favorite at @onetailatatime! He’s been at the rescue for a year and a half which is way too long. Being a pitbull or a pitbull mix in a shelter/rescue is hard, being this breed with separation anxiety makes it even harder to find a forever home. Because of Miguel’s separation anxiety he is part of One Tail’s “Good Dog Forever Program”which includes a free adoption fee, a foster to adopt period where a trainer will work with you in your home and training for life! Otherwise Miguel is a super sweet and playful boy that just wants to be with his humans. If you’re interested in adopting or fostering a dog visit onetail.org
According to NBC Chicago, Einbender eventually wants to make another round of Cones of Fame and this time, she wants to get designers involved.
Cool with us. We could probably look at fashion cones forever.
