The day Obama stated his interest in adopting a dog from the shelter was a slightly brighter one for the approximately 7 million adoptable dogs & cats killed each year in this country. The staggering reality is that for each one sold at a pet store or by a breeder, another perfectly worthy one is killed.
Our nations shelters are filled to capacity with all kinds of amazing adoptable animals including, as Obama put it, “Mutts like me.”
On the heels of Obama’s comment, I got a call from Pia Salk, an animal advocate
who works with North America’s largest non-profit pet adoption website, Adopt-a-Pet.com.
Pia simply asked if I might be willing to collaborate on a way to have my art help these
I’m all for adopting from the shelter! My wife and I share our home with 2 pooches, George and Weezie, who is a rescue. They are the happy canine siblings to our 2 human daughters.
I have created a limited edition run of 400 signed and numbered silk-screen prints that will be available soon at MuttsLikeMe.com.
The proceeds will go to getting the furry non-partisan U.S. residents, who share our country, saved and into homes.
