Rod Stewart sang about it and anyone who loves animals FEELS IT! You have to...if you are owned by and loved by an animal...spots or no spots, mind you...then you know PASSION.
Who greets you like you've been gone for months when you just got back from a 20 minute errand?
Who keeps track of your every move and adores you in a good way (and is not a "stalker") and thinks you are all that and more?
YOUR ANIMAL COMPANION!
You want to help?
You feel compelled to assist the Homeless and Helpless animals that are abandoned and dumped into shelters and in rescue coast to coast?
You can't foster or adopt?
Visit Art Helping Animals and find a charity that you CAN support. The charities that the artists paint and create for are trying their best to assist a variety of homeless animals find "forever homes" or be cared for in sanctuaries, in the case of wild or exotic animals. These charities are located from coast to coast as are the artists! These animals all need our help to survive.
Art helping Animals is a small artist fellowship where each independent artist provides original art for auction or sale in a variety of media and prices to donate a portion of every sale to these helpless and homeless animals.
The mission is clearly stated...
"Saving one animal won't change the world... But, surely the world will change for that one animal... "
Our Mission is to help Animals by telling their stories and by raising funds through the sale of artwork to help animals in need.
This mission is passionate and the vision the artists share for these animals is making a difference. The support they are helping to give through art is mounting with the generous support of collectors of fine art and lovers of animals. In the last 5-6 months Art Helping Animals has raised almost $ 8000.00!
Come meet the artists and the charities with a visit to http://www.arthelpinganimals.com. There is always something new to see, read the newsletters, and coming soon new ideas for gift giving and a way for children to get involved, too!
Come find your passion while opening your hearts to creatures great and small!
