Fundraising the Fun Way!
We were paws-itively thrilled to team up with the Oregon Humane Society to celebrate their 150 year anniversary. Close to 600 painters joined us in the studio to paint their furry (and in some cases hairy and/or scaly) pets on canvas and canvas totes! These special OHS #PaintYourPetPDX fundraising painting parties sold out as quickly as we could schedule them, helping us raise $5,260 for the wonderful people and animals of the OHS animal shelter. And of course we made some great memories along the way.
Each painting party, we featured two adoptable pets, and celebrated as they found their fur-ever homes. Some painters were joining us to pay tribute to a lost pet, and others were celebrating new adoptions. We got to hear stories about dogs, cats, lizards, birds…we even had a ferret in formal wear! Make sure to check out the tag #PaintYourPetPDX on Instagram to see all the excitement. We’re feline pretty great about all the finished masterpieces.
In addition to the fun paint nights in the studio, we ventured out into the community for the Doggie Dash and Canines Uncorked where we celebrated our love of pets with commemorative paw print keepsakes and a giant Pollock-inspired paw print mural.
Stay tuned, we’re not done yet! There are still many pets to be painted. Check out our calendar for your next party with us here.
