artists for animals

It’s Grant Time!

If you run an animal rescue not-for-profit in the North Texas area (and you don’t have any paid employees), you’re eligible for a grant from Artists for Animals. Starting September 1st, you can fill out a simple form with information about your organization and we will present it to our Board of Directors at the fall meeting. The groups chosen will receive a check from AFA.

We are open for submissions during the month of September only, so if you can’t return the grant form before midnight, September 30th, I’m sorry but we will be unable to consider your request. Email us for the form you need: artistsforanimalstx@gmail.com and we’ll see if we can help!

It’s time for some music!

Join us for an intimate chamber music concert at The Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center Lobby on March 27th at 4pm as we celebrate the animals that add so much to our lives. Your tickets can be purchased online, here, and each ticket includes wine, savory nibbles and their famous bread pudding.

After the purchase, your name will be added to the list at the door (no paper tickets will be sent) Only 120 tickets will be sold, so don’t wait!

But you can always help save a life by making a donation!  With your help we raised over $7700 dollars.  The 2017 Tiny Dog Calendar is available here  and a portion of each sale benefits homeless dogs in the Dallas area. So grab your holiday shopping list and fill a few stockings early.

And don’t be surprised to see some of these dogs pop up in an art display in some public space around Dallas — they are ready to show off and tell their rescue stories!  Helping encourage people to adopt and not over look the beautiful animals waiting for homes is a big job, so help them by sharing the times and dates as the exhibitions are scheduled?  Thank you!

And the winner is…

Pandah!  By a nose and a half.  The competition was fierce and every one of these dogs deserved to win — so our deepest thanks to the families who fought hard and campaigned for their pets. Each dog will receive a gift print of their calendar shot and a copy of the calendar. Best of all, the homeless pets of Dallas win as Artists for Animals continues to fight for their welfare. Thank you!

Announcing our KICKSTARTER campaign! 22 days left!

Artists for Animals may seem like just a once-per-year event but we’re busy saving dogs and planning ALL YEAR LONG.  And with the new KICKSTARTER Campaign we’re even busier!

In a few weeks our visits to the classrooms at Booker T Washington School for the Arts start up again with the new school year — that means more beautiful relationships being created between students and their “models” and more beautiful artwork. But wait, there’s MORE!  Here’s the video explaining our expansion:

We’re reaching out to more people with larger, better venues and more concert dates — but we need your help!
