Win a Custom Painting - Help a Dachshund!

See this little guy?

His name is Jerry. A 2nd Chance Dachshund Rescue furbie, Jerry recently underwent an expensive surgery to remove a life-threatening blockage. 2nd Chance Dachshund Rescue is a small, volunteer-run organization (like most rescues), and most of the expenses of the rescue are paid for by the rescue angel who started it (like most rescues). 2nd Chance Doxie is hoping to raise money to cover the costs of Jerry's procedure. 

To help them continue their rescue efforts, DawgArt is donating an 11x14 inch custom portrait for raffle fundraiser. (This will be a painting of YOUR pet!) Imagine your pet (or some lucky recipient's pet) captured on canvas in the brilliant colors of DawgArt. Here's a photo to help you imagine it:

Painting shown is 18"x24". Raffle painting is 11"x14".

$5.00 will buy five tickets.
$25.00 will buy 30 tickets.
$100.00 will buy 125 tickets.

To purchase tickets, just visit the 2nd Chance Doxie website and click their "Donate" button. You can enter your desired amount and the purpose for the donation (DawgArt raffle).

2nd Chance Doxie will hold the raffle drawing once they reach their goal of $700.

Here is a chance to win a custom DawgArt portrait for a fraction of the normal cost!

Look at this face:

This little guy and others like him need your help. Together, we can make a difference!

RIP Marius

Marius, the young, healthy giraffe publicly dissected in the Copenhagen Zoo, touched the hearts of many when he was killed. His death, attributed to his lack of genetic desirability, and despite offers of rescue from other sanctuaries, was seen as an outrage by many in the animal advocate community. This image is a tribute to Marius, who proved that one creature, even a silent one, can unite thousands in a common purpose.

DawgArt show in Winter Park

The lovely and atmospheric restaurant Sleeping Moon Cafe in Winter Park, Florida has been hosting a show of DawgArt pieces.

The Sleeping Moon Cafe brings artists and musicians to the public in an eclectic venue, featuring new American, vegetarian, and vegan cuisine. So fun to see a collection of the brightly colored paintings hanging together. I hope the restaurant patrons have been enjoying the artwork! Those in the Winter Park area, be sure to stop by and have a look.

(The turtle and the hummingbird aren't DawgArt, obviously.)
