Wes Anderson wants you to re-home a dog

Yes, you read correctly. To proclaim the release of Wes Andersons' stop-motion animation film Isle Of Dogs, coming out on Blu-ray and DVD on August 6th, the RSPCA and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment have come together to re-enact a scene from Wes Anderson's most recent 'canine caper'.

The purpose of this project is to hearten film, as well as animal lovers, to adopt and rehome a dog. Just last year, he RSPCA received close to 20,000 calls about dogs. That then goes up over the summer months, and it's been found that "July and August see an average of approximately 74 dogs abandoned every day". 

In support of the cause, creative director and photographer Linda Blacker gathered a handful of celebrity dogs to take part, including pups such as 'Steven the Frenchy', 'Cockapoo Marley', 'Marcel le Corgi' and 'Doug the Therapy Dog'. All part in curating an ISLE OF DOGS inspired photoshoot to help raise awareness of the thousands of dogs that are abandoned every year.

Take a look at some of the shots here:
