Enter your favorite view or portrait of a pet in your household, friends, strangers in any beautiful arrangement. To show appreciation of having a pet or pets and to all the people who work very hard in rescuing the unwanted and abandoned pets or animals from the killed shelters around the world and transfer them into the safe haven and rescue shelters for adoption. All medium welcome.
The purpose of doing this project, over one million abandoned pets and animals have been killed by killed shelters from New York to especially southern California and it is way out of control. It's about time, it's about change, to put a stop on puppy mills and out of control irresponsible breeders that sells to pet stores and online for one word, greed. We, the artists have the power of conveying the message through our works for the innocent animals. It is up to us to help the rescuers and the non-killed shelters to make life better and easier for them. Together we can make progress, one day at a time. It's our responsibility as a human to use our intelligence wisely and in humane manner to respect the life around us, to live in peace within ourselves in knowing we have done the right thing for our fellow mammals.
