Students Paint Pet Portraits for Paws-itive Cause

Students in Cricket Maiden's art class at Forest Park Academy have recently been painting pet portraits for a cause!
Students have painted pictures of animals for adoption at Angels of Assisi and Franklin County Humane Society Planned Pethood & Adoption Center to help raise awareness of pets in need of loving homes. Many students are also donating a copy or original of their artwork to the shelters to raise funds for the adoption and/or care of the animals. Some of the animals have been in the shelter anywhere between 8 months to almost two years, with one dog being there for almost 7 years.
We are so proud of Forest Park for making a positive impact on the community, and thank you to Ms. Cricket for creating this innovative project!
Interested in adopting an animal, purchasing artwork, or sponsoring an adoption? Call Angels of Assisi at (540) 344-8707 or Planned Pethood at (540) 489-3491.
