Art and dogs seem to go well together. And since The New Barker is the art of dog, celebrating all things dog in the art world just makes even more sense when coupled with animal welfare.
Murals for Mutts is a grass roots, non-profit organization that wants to help shelters and rescue groups across Florida through art. If you’re a business with your own building, all you have to do is donate a wall. Murals for Mutts will do the rest, including coordinating with the local shelter or rescue group of your choice for the fundraising part. Murals for Mutts will also promote your business and coordinate all media and events associated with the project. The public will be invited to memorialize their pets by having portraits painted on the wall for a donation. Murals for Mutts artist, Anna Hamilton first tackled this dream when she painted a wall in Dunedin for Dunedin Dog Rescue. Currently, Murals for Mutts is working on a mural at Gas Plant Antique Arcade. Proceeds will benefit Pet Pal Animal Shelter and Save Our Strays.
