Donation call for art

My good friend Bernie Berlin does animal rescue and wants to build a shelter facility. She currently keeps animals in her home, and even though she has a large house-space is limited. She wants to build a facility, so they can rescue more animals and be able to do more. She is looking for art donations. Her blog is if you would like to see some of the furry faces she helps and read their stories.
Here is the info:

This is the official call for art for A Place To Bark's Artists Unleashed Auction.An Artful Fusion of Hearts & Hands working together to benefit animals in need.

This auction will benefit A Place To Bark Animal Rescue. The numbers of animals I take in every year continues to grow and so, a shelter & funding is needed to help foster the animals and keep our rescue alive. We have 20 acres here and plenty of room to build.Since moving to Tennessee in December of 2005, we have taken in, fostered, transported and found new homes for over 100 animals. We will continue doing as much as we can, but cannot do it alone.

Our euthanasia rate in the area I live, is 95 to 98 percent. Animals being put to sleep every 3 to 5 days. Lives needlessly wasted. By coming together and sharing our gifts of art, you will help animals in need and save lives. Together we can do great things!!!

Artwork does not have to be professional, we ask all levels of artistic talent donate, kids too!!!Everyone can contribute in one way or another.. Help spread the word to others..I hope you'll join in and help me, help the animals...
