Painting for the Shelter Animals

Hello everyone, I'm baaaack! And guess what I did this week? I painted a picture!

Remember last year, when I painted a picture which sold for 100 USD, and I donated all the money to help the Australian animals that were caught and injured by the bushfires? You can read all about that HERE.

Well, this year I am painting for the Coquitlam Animal Shelter. It's a no-kill animal shelter for stray cats and dogs and other critters that live in our city. Here's a link to the shelter website, here.
We want to raise money for the animal shelter so that the animals can have a better Christmas this year!


My human did not take many photos this year of me in the progress of the painting... But, we did get it on video! Please watch this video that my human Lizzy made!


So, are you guys ready to start bidding?! GO HERE! Bidding starts at $0.99!

Duuude, I am so excited about this!
I would be so happy if all of my blogging pals could help spread the word of this painting around.
Oh, and for those of you who are not able to bid on the painting, but would still like to help... There are some Google adds on the side of my blog... For each click on one of the adds, we receive a few cents. Every single cent will be used to help the shelter animals around the world!


Here is a photo of the finished painting...


And another photo of me sitting beside my painting!


Hehe, I think I'm going to have to make this a yearly tradition, painting to help our animal friends in need!
Thank you all SO much for your help! I hope everydog, cat, human, and whoever/whatever else is reading this, will have a GRRRReat day!

Prints the Cat said...

Very neat, Sparky and Lizzy! It's neat you got it documented on video!

My lady and man wish they had helped my Angel sister Hana the Dog do a painting like that. It is something to cherish. But, Hana passed away a month ago. So, to everyone who thinks painting with their pet is a neat idea, don't wait. Do it now before it's too late.

Sparky and Lizzy, be sure you two have a painting that you have for keeps. (in addition to the one on ebay)

Faith and her Mum said...

Wowee you are sure clever; I hope you raise lots and lots of money. My Mum gets cross if I get too near her paints - I think that's cos our cat walked in the green paint one day and left footprints on the white windowsill...

Thanks for visiting my blog; I *am* feeling good now that my eyes are fixed and my weight is right. Us Papillon crosses have got to stick together huh?
