Art For Animals


I discovered Bernie and her mission this morning and am feverishly spreading the word. I'm encouraging all papercrafters, knitters, jewelry makers, painters, and artists of all kind to create and donate. Send along something to help Bernie, an artist herself, and her mission to make a difference. Oh, and she says kids art, too! So why not make it a family project!

From her website:

This is the official call for art for A Place To Bark's Artists Unleashed Auction. An Artful Fusion of Hearts & Hands working together to benefit animals in need. This auction will benefit A Place To Bark Animal Rescue. The numbers of animals I take in every year continues to grow and so, a shelter & funding is needed to help foster the animals and keep our rescue alive. We have 20 acres here and plenty of room to build. Since moving to Tennessee in December of 2005, we have taken in, fostered, transported and found new homes for over 100 animals. We will continue doing as much as we can, but cannot do it alone. Our euthanasia rate in the area I live, is 95 to 98 percent. Animals being put to sleep every 3 to 5 days. Lives needlessly wasted. By coming together and sharing our gifts of art, you will help animals in need and save lives. Together we can do great things!!!

Artwork does not have to be professional, we ask all levels of artistic talent donate, kids too!!! Everyone can contribute in one way or another.. Help spread the word to others.. I hope you'll join in and help me, help the animals...

Specifics to donate art:

Sounds cool and definitely a good cause. I'll have to think about what to send. What will you be sending?
