The North Wake Landfill District Park in Raleigh, North Carolina, doesn't look like a burial ground.
The grass is green and fresh. There are wide paths where families take afternoon strolls. There are biking trails, clean playgrounds - even a picnic area.
But Landfill Park used to be an actual landfill - where the bodies of over 25,000 unwanted shelter animals were dumped.
James DeAlto Park visitors are met with a sobering message, etched in chalk by activist James DeAlto: "This landfill is the permanent resting place of over 25,000 unwanted shelter dogs," it reads. "If that bothers you, please adopt one today. #AdoptDontShop."
It's a truth that photographer Shannon Johnstone knows all too well. In 2010, she started photographing rescue dogs in Landfill Park.
