Art For The Animals
ART FOR THE ANIMALS is dedicated to increasing awareness
of the treatment of animals through artistic expression and education

Who We Are:
Artists and animal lovers who are taking action to increase awareness of our human responsibilities
(and the rewards) of respectful and compassionate treatment of our companion animals and wild creatures everywhere.

What We Do:
Our first project brought together professional artist/teachers with groups of children for day-long workshops whichl focused
on creating individual works of ‘animal’ art. Each child created their own artistic interpretation of the ‘feelings’ of a cat
or dog when it was abandoned - or when it was loved; when it was neglected or abused - or when it was protected and cared for.
The culmination of the project resulted in a group Art Exhibition with Awards Certificates for all participants.
The Exhibition was located in the Humane Society of Greater Miami’s new building on North Miami Beach
during the month of September 2005. You can see all of the children's art on the following pages.

How You Can Help:There are many ways you can participate.
You can help with fundraising, hosting informative gatherings, making calls, distributing literature, gathering materials...
You can donate money. You can donate towels and bedding for shelter animals,
printing and mailing services, banners, advertising, publicity...the possibilities are wide open.
We are flexible and very open to creative ideas!
The more people that become involved, the more children and adults we will reach and save more animal lives!
We hope you will join us in this exciting and creative project of creating ‘Art For The Animals’ and eventually ... .
a better life for all animals and humans ;-)
