Howliday Pet Portraits

Howliday Pet Portraits will open for submissions at the end of October!

From 10/30 to 11/10, you'll be able to order a one-of-a-kind drawing of your pet to support The Anti-Cruelty Society’s animals.


Submit a pic of your pet and one of our Artist Volunteers will create a unique drawing! Donate a minimum of $30 per pet to receive a one-of-a-kind artwork while giving animals who come through our doors a second chance at life. Here’s the catch—while our volunteers have many talents, drawing might not be their strongest! They range from children to professionals but, no matter the skill level, you will receive a truly unique portrait of your beloved pet.

Please note: if you are requesting art of multiple pets, you must donate $30 per pet, even if they’re in one portrait. 

Here’s how it works: 

- Registration will open on Monday, October 30.

- Submit your pet’s photo according to the directions in your email confirmation.

- One of our Volunteer Artists will create a portrait based on your pet’s photo. 

- When the artist has completed the drawing (which may take up to several days), a digital version will be emailed to you. The original artwork will be mailed to you within a few weeks, and no later than December 8th.

If you're requesting a gift - gift wrap and direct shipping to your recipient is available! For an additional $10 donation, we will gift wrap your portrait and send it directly to your giftee with a tracking number.

Delivery or Pick-Up? Donors can now choose to have their portrait mailed to them, or they can pick it up at the shelter to save us postage.
