If you're a pet owner you know that dogs and cats are notoriously tough to catch on camera. Waggy tails and panting tongues aren't very conducive to a point and shoot.

But pair those pets with sexy models and professional photographers, and the results are pretty remarkable.

That's the concept behind Project Fashion Tails, an advocacy project that's using the sex appeal of models and celebrities like Real Housewives of Miami's Joanna Krupa to bring attention to South Florida's adoptable animals.

The brainchild of fashion designer Eva Danielle, Project Fashion Tails is an effort to help end the killing of approximately 22,000 homeless dogs and cats every year at the Miami-Dade county pound. Abandoned, abused, or misunderstood, the animals end up bagged and tagged. And while Miami-Dade county did adopt a No Kill resolution earlier this year, there's still a long way to go to reach that goal.

After hearing the truth about the fate of all these homeless pets, Danielle made it her mission to help. With a background in fashion and photography, she dreamed up the concept of Fashion Tails, a unique project that would pair high fashion, hot models, and needy animals for artsy photo shoots.

"I really wanted to try and do something that would help alleviate the problem and inspire Miami to create no-kill shelters," she told Cultist.

To make the project happen, Danielle had to recruit animal rescues (including partnering with, photographers, models, and other volunteers. After emailing all her contacts and starting to spread the word, she received a flood of offers for people to donate their time and energy to the cause. More than 15 rescue groups have been involved and over 200 volunteers have participated.

"It just spiraled into something amazing," she said.

Miami photographers including Tom Clark, David Siquerios, Jeffrey Salter, Andres Hernandez and John Landers, among lots of others, offered up their snapshot skills to frame unique shoots. Each photographer created his own concept, and shot models and animals to match.
