THE REALITY... Millions of shelter animals, puppy mill dogs, lab/research dogs, Chained Dogs, and those used in dog fighting rings, are at deaths door and without a voice. But because of the compassionate, life saving work of rescue groups, no kill shelters, fosters and transporters, many of them will live to know love and experience a happy life.
Our project was created to fund the needs of these animals and all of the groups involved in saving them. Sadly, these crucial organizations are severely underfunded and cannot afford to save them all without our collective support. After they have pulled animals to safety, the costs to keep these animals healthy and with good medical care, can run into the thousands for just one animal.
HOW WE AIM TO SAVE LIVES... We are creating beautiful products from the 5500 shelter dog portraits and saving lives through our "Rescue Rewards" program. Every time you buy one of our products, we give rewards of $55, $50, $25 or $10 from your purchase to a rescue organization that you choose from our drop down menu at checkout.
Ultimately, when we get the exhibit up and the Museum of Compassion is open, we will be the epicenter for national/international conferences and a platform for "Ted-like" talks on animal welfare and practical ways we can cultivate more compassion, as well as a place for kids and artists to come and paint for a particular animal charity/cause that they are passionate about, be it Dogs, Cats, Tigers, Elephants, Dolphins, Gorillas, and such like, and we"ll turn their paintings into beautiful merchandise and raise money and heighten awareness for that particular cause. The time has come for art to lead the way for social change!
As we are just two people doing everything, we would gladly accept volunteers for a variety of needs that we have and encourage you to step up, donate your talents to our organization and join us in our quest to save the rest.
