Dog painters get creative to save UK rescue centre

Bristol (United Kingdom) (AFP) – Faced with an influx of stray and surrendered pets, an animal rescue centre in Bristol, southwestern England, has had to get creative when it comes to raising funds, turning to the animal artists in their ranks. “We get a canvas… put some non-toxic paint on the canvas, clingfilm on top of that, and then we put their favourite treats” explains Jodie Bennett, the centre’s community and engagement officer. The artworks, created by the animals licking and playing with their materials, will be auctioned at a “Mutt Gala” in December.
