One of my main goals with Whiskered Paintings is to fully engage with the dog community and make a positive difference. I'm working toward making a percentage donation from every one of my pieces to a local rescue. This is still a work in process, mostly because there are so many rescues that I want to work with and figuring out how to divide my donations is really difficult!

I try to choose a new rescue every month or so and donate a percentage of my sales directly to them. If a client has a specific rescue they prefer to donate to, I am always open and eager to learn about more Denver area animal rescues. I also love hearing about pet charity events that I can attend!
