Fetch A Sketch

Let us turn your pet into a masterpiece (…or maybe not) to help pets in need! Donate what you can to help homeless pets and submit a photo to our Fetch a Sketch fundraiser. Your pet’s portrait may be done by a professional artist or more likely by one of our less artistic staff members, either way it’ll put a smile on your face. And best of all, your donation will help homeless and abused pets continue to get critical services.
