Frame By Frame: How One Woman’s Pictures Changed Thousands Of Lives

TULSA, Oklahoma — Animal shelters are bursting at the seams. Their intake almost always exceeds adoptions, and they’re running out of room. But one woman is doing her part to get as many of these animals into homes as possible.

You see them behind bars. In cold steel cages, their cries ripping through shelters across the country.

“They need somebody to stand up for them,” said Sherry Stinson. “They need somebody to be their advocate.” Stinson is just that.

She teaches a digital photography class in Bartlesville. Seven years ago someone asked her to capture shelter dogs.

In seven years, she’s snapped thousands of frames. Each is tinged with love and pain.

“It’s rewarding,” said Stinson. “It’s sad. It’s heartbreaking. And it’s joyous. In the seven years I’ve done this, I’ve only taken home one.”

That one was emaciated. She was starving to death. Stinson says 10 simple words from the lips of a child saved that dog’s life.

“We can just feed her and she’ll get better, right?” Stinson said with a tear in her eye. “And I said ‘yeah, it really is that simple’.”

She named her Destiny after the little girl who changed that dog’s fate.
