RIVER NORTH — The Anti-Cruelty Society is drawing portraits of residents’ animals for a small fee to support the shelter during the coronavirus pandemic.
A portrait costs $20 and requires a photo of the pet. One of the staff members or volunteer artists will create a personalized drawing of the pet.
This fundraiser has replaced traditional campaigns that have been canceled due to COVID-19. Those interested can submit photos of their pets through Saturday.
“This project allows members of the community an opportunity to help care for animals in need while receiving a unique keepsake of their pets, and they don’t have to leave their home,” said Jennifer GoodSmith, vice president of mission advancement for The Anti-Cruelty Society, in a press release.
Pet owners can fill out a form online and receive the mailed drawing in about two weeks.
