This Pet Rescue painting is inspired by my cat Taco. If ever you could label a cat a “hippie cat” it would be Taco…she is all about peace and lovin’ everybody up. Taco is named Taco because she was found in a dumpster behind a taco joint. From the moment I brought her home she was a relaxed and happy cat…she loves to meet new people and pets and lives under the assumption that everyone wants to be her friend. When she needs it she has just the right amount of sass in her too.
Pet Rescue Art is my passion, it is how I can work at spreading the word about how important it is to rescue pets instead of purchasing them. Every day 8-10,000 healthy cats and dogs are killed in our country because they have no home, that works out to about six per minute. My husband and I purchased our first dogs many, many years ago…we just didn’t know how many animals were dying in shelters every day. My introduction to pet rescue was my lab Sparky…once Bret and I learned more about how many pets need rescue not only did we choose to rescue a house full of pets but we believe that sharing the rescue message will motivate people to choose to rescue vs. purchase animals like it did for us. Check out my Art Gallery to view other Pet Rescue paintings I have done.
This painting is available at my Shop where I have a variety of fun pet rescue themed paintings and gift items for the pet lover. If you are a rescue advocate consider following my blog…I blog about all things pet and pet rescue!
I leave you with a picture of our sweet Taco who inspired this painting.
Pet Rescue: Pawffiti…acrylic on canvas…pet rescue art!
This is my latest Pawffiti…important messages from the cats we love. This pet rescue art is an acrylic painting on mounted canvas so it can be hung on the wall as is. I paint the picture to continue on to the side of the canvas – see pictures below. The painting is 12×12 inches (on a 1.5″ canvas). I use masterpiece collection canvas, high quality paints and a final varnish (matte) to make my paintings a lasting addition to any home.
This painting is two cats admiring the moon and sitting patiently on a fence waiting for their forever home. It is also depicts their propensity for mischief as they are painting a pawffiti message on the fence they are sitting on.
I do not make prints of any of my paintings, each is an original. While I may paint several versions of a design I like, none are exactly the same and make a unique addition to the pet lover’s home!
The copyright does not appear on the actual painting…only on the photos. Many of my paintings are available at my ETSY shop.
Pawffiti is beginning to take it on…I like to think of it as a way to “paw it forward” . Last month three of my paintings were auctioned off to raise money for a local rescue group here in Georgetown. Last week a man in Arizona bought two of my Pawffiti’s for his wife…turns out she gave up a lucrative job to work full time at a shelter in Arizona (a no kill shelter…woo hoo!). I donated 10% of my Pawffiti sales to her shelter…and the art will hang somewhere where it can promote the message of saving homeless pets…SIX A MINUTE… that is how many healthy cats and dogs are killed each passing minute in the US, simply because no one wants them. The more we talk about it…the more chances we have to save them all.
I hope you enjoy this …I just love this painting 🙂 Check out my Art Gallery to see other paintings I have done…if you love all things pet and pet rescue subscribe to my blog and get to know our pack better!
