If you're visiting this site and reading this post, the chances are pretty high that you're an animal lover with a particular fondness for dogs or horses. Seeing furry friends in need can be especially heart-wrenching for anyone with an affinity towards animals.
Each year I commit some of my art to charitable events that benefit causes close to my heart. Enter Sit With Me Dog Rescue. Sit With Me, a registered non-profit organization, works hard to take in deserving dogs and to give them the best possible chance to be placed into new forever homes.
Partnered with the Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue, Sit With Me will be hosting their fourth annual Rescue Chili Cook-Off later this month to raise money to help dogs and cats in need. Besides sampling the 12 amazing chilis available (including vegetarian), a silent auction, bake sale, 50/50 draw, entertainment and even psychic readings will be part of the event as well.
I'm pleased to add that my portrait of Kenzie has been donated to this year's auction. All proceeds from admission tickets and auction sales will go towards helping the animals.
