Helping out the Animal Shelters
 "Gunner"   6" x 6" Oil on Gessobord

I've wanted to volunteer for the longest time at the animal shelter.  Making the time has been a huge challenge.  Over the past couple of years I've made it down there maybe a dozen times to walk the dogs.  But really, I just can't seem to find the time consistently to be there.

On top of that, it is so hard to walk away.  I mean really, these pups just steal your heart every single time.  I just know I'd end up with several dogs and feeling even more saddened that I couldn't take more.

Anyway, I'm hoping that I can first bring awareness to all the wonderful dogs and cats that are available in the shelters.  I know there are special circumstances, ie, allergies, etc. to purchase a
bred dog, but please if the option to adopt is there please open your heart to these wonderful souls.

I will donate 25% of any purchase of my small paintings of dogs and cats.  This is a huge incentive to push myself to paint and I'm learning so much by working on these paintings.

Here are several of the paintings I've finished and posted on to date:
