If you’ve been paying attention to our Artists for Animals benefit show series, then you have no doubt seen numerous mentions of the fantastic art show portion curated by local Art Professor Ryann Casey. Today we are very excitied to make the official art show announcement!
Over 50 artists are donating their time and work to Philadelphia’s largest no-kill shelter.
Every year over 30,000 dogs and cats enter Philadelphia’s animal control shelter. An estimated 12,000 don’t make it out of the shelter alive. PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society) has worked vigorously since 2005 toward decreasing that number. The largest no-kill shelter in Philadelphia, PAWS also operates as a high-volume, low-cost veterinary clinic for pet owners and rescue organizations that do not have access to affordable basic veterinary care. PAWS is a privately funded organization which means community support is a vital part of sustaining their mission.
On May 10th – July 10th Homeward Bound: A Benefit for PAWS will give people the opportunity to not only give to PAWS’ efforts but also view and acquire artwork from various mediums donated to the show by over 50 artists. Curated by Ryann Casey and hosted by Grindcore House, Homeward Bound will also feature a display showcasing a few of the many cats and dogs available for adoption through PAWS. If you don’t leave with a piece of art perhaps you’ll leave with a new pet companion in mind.
