Our 2019 Concert for Kindness was a big success — thanks to our wonderful donors, art lovers, musicians, artists, music lovers and the many volunteers who worked on this event. We raised over $68,000 in total –and because we have no salaries or overhead, that money all goes to saving more cats and dogs!
Our hearts are full as we plan for future events. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
We made a visit to Kyle Clark’s Advanced Drawing Class at Booker T. Washington School for the Visual and Performing Arts as we do on a regular basis, and as usual were completely amazed. The creative energy of these wonderful young artists makes every minute there an real treat. The artwork they are doing for this year’s Concert for Kindness Silent Auction is nearing completion and so beautiful.
Deck the Paws only happens once a year! Don’t miss it!
It’s time for Puppy Yoga at Northaven Trail, and what could be more fun? This event has really grown over the past two years and there are now more tickets available for the October 20th class. And look at all the cool sponsors who are participating! Ticket sales benefit Artists for Animals and Operation Kindness.
Don’t wait to reserve your spot because these classes always sell out. Read the details and purchase your tickets online here.

Are you part of a local (north Texas) animal rescue organization? If your group would like to apply for grant money from the Artists for Animals Community Grant Program, now is the time!
Email us for the simple grant form, fill it out and get it to us by November 1st and our board will meet and start sending out checks. Last year’s grant recipients represented a variety of efforts and initiatives that we were proud to support – maybe your group is ready to launch a new program but just need some funding to make it happen?
But don’t delay — email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you the form you need to apply. And remember, we must have the form back by November 1, 2018.
Thanks for all you do for the pets that need us.
Our Tiny Dog Calendar contest is complete and we sold a record number 15,695 votes! This money will be distributed via grants to a variety of local animal rescue groups within the next couple of months. This is how we all save lives and help relieve overcrowding in local area shelters — SO THANK YOU FOR YOUR VOTES- and congratulations to our winners!
If you’re a member of an animal rescue group in the north Texas area and would like to apply for a grant, please email us at email@example.com with the subject line that reads: GRANT PROPOSAL REQUEST and we will email you the appropriate form!
Voting is almost half over and we’re a whisker away from 6000 votes! What’s your voting strategy? Waiting until the last minute might and then spending the whole amount? That might sound like the thing to do, but you’re voting blind that last evening and hanging back doesn’t incentivize the pack!
If some of our dogs in the middle of the race think they’ve “got it made” they might not try as hard — and we all need a dangling carrot (um, er, bone?) once in a while. So why not do half now and save half for the finish line?
Whatever your strategy, we’re so very grateful for your support — and may the best dogs win!
