I came across this website called an Act of Dog: http://anactofdog.org/An_Act_of_Dog/Home.html where an amazing artist is using art to save animals.
The artist and colleagues are seeking to raise $20mm to help put an end to the 5500 dogs each in shelters throughout the country. He has committed to painting 5500 dogs in shelters and creating a memorial to use art to bring attention to the cause. In his words, a painting can capture the emotions of the dogs stuck in shelters and bring the moment to life so they aren’t forgotten.
They are going to create an exhibition and their ambitions are very large and real. They have already garnered an enormous amount of press coverage and there is a documentary being made of what they are doing. Their goals and cause are amazing to say the least, and I wish we had more people like this out there. I can’t wait to see how this effort progresses-they are doing a tremendous amount of good.
