Volunteers and staff at the Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) is creating drawings of animals belonging to their many clients in a wonderful effort to raise money to care for their resident shelter animals. Clients are asked to donate $15 to the shelter along with a photo of their pet, and in return they receive a hand-drawn portrait of said beloved pet.
The WHS is very candid about the artistic prowess of their staff members, but it’s all for a good cause.
If you donate $15 to the animals at WHS, we’ll draw your pet. The catch? We’re a whole lot better at caring for animals than we are at drawing them. We have a pool of staff and volunteers standing by, eager to turn your animal into a timeless work of art (or at least make you laugh). You *might* get one of our extremely talented artists, but we’ll be honest… you’ll probably get someone who can’t draw their way out of a paper bag. WHS serves 40,000 animals every year and we rely on donations to make that work possible, but it doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun while we raise those funds!
The WHS will continue these drawings until they raise $10,000. As of today’s date, they’ve raised $9,806.
