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!

Announcing the Artists for Animals Concert: March 14, 2014

Welcome! We have a new name, a new website and a new mission for the new year. We are an organization of artists founded by Erin Hannigan, Principal Oboe of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and Teresa Berg, Dallas photographer and animal activist, in 2011. Our previous concerts (called An Evening for Dog Lovers) were held to benefit a 501(c)3 named Paws in the City.

This year’s live multi-media event is sponsored in part by DSO (Dallas Symphony Orchestra) and reaches out further in to the community, drawing student artists in for a poster contest and local artisans displaying one-of-a-kind pet beds — all available in the silent auction.

All proceeds from this year’s event benefit Operation Kindness, the oldest and largest no-kill shelter in Texas. Live classical music from some of DSO’s finest musicians paired with 9 x 12′ projected photographic images leave attendees with a multi-layered appreciation for the beauty and spirit of the homeless dogs and cats that are featured. This year’s event will be held at the Addison Conference Center, in Addison Texas. Tickets will be on sale shortly!
