Art for the Animals
By: Lynn Lieu
Each year the Riverside County Department of Animal Services hosts this fundraising outdoor juried exhibition and sale. Donated art is sold at the exhibition and in an online auction to help homeless shelter animals. Art pieces will be on display this weekend at the shelter along with vendors and artist booths. Raised funds are put towards life saving medications, veterinary supplies, cat litter, leashes, cages, feed bowls and other items to keep the shelter’s dogs, cats, horses and other animals safe and healthy. Art for the Animals was a fall event that moved to spring just last year. The price of admission is one donated piece (matted and framed, ready to sell) on the online auction fundraiser. Put your skills and talent towards helping an animal!
