Pet Portrait Fundraiser for Stafford Animal Shelter


We all know our pets are one-of-a-kind masterpieces,  and now you can have an artist paint them!  Stafford Animal Shelter has joined with artists from the B. Hive Artisan Co-Op in Livingston, MT for a fundraiser to help support both homeless pets and working artists. For $60 you will get an original 8 x 10 painting of your pet on canvas illustration board ready for framing. $35 from each painting will be donated to the shelter and $25 will go to the artist.

We are keeping these paintings affordable and fun in hopes of raising spirits and funds during this difficult COVID outbreak. It’s a great idea to buy one now and save for future birthday, adoption anniversaries, or holiday gifts.

This is a safe fundraising opportunity for the shelter as we can handle the orders online and will have safe local pick up.  We can also offer it to out of town supporters and ship it to you for an additional $10 for USPS Priority Mail Service.    We’re making it as easy as possible to get your “paw-casso”!

Here’s how:

  1. Pay $60.00 online through “donate” link on Stafford website:   ($70 if you’d like us to ship to you –   Be sure to include your mailing address at checkout.)
  2. Email photo of your pet & preferred background color to (Artist will try their best to paint in color scheme requested).
  3. Feel good that you supported homeless pets & working artists.
  4. Wait 7-10 days for your masterpiece – we will contact you for pickup at the shelter or email you with shipping tracking number.
