What is the Imperfect Pet Portrait event?

It’s time to put some more “fun” back in fundraising… if you donate $20 to the animals at Humane Society of Hobart, we’ll draw your pet. The catch? We’re a whole lot better at caring for animals than we are at drawing them. We have a pool of staff and volunteers standing by, eager to turn your animal into a timeless work of art (or at least make you laugh). You *might* get one of our extremely talented artists, but we’ll be honest… you'll probably get one of us who haven't drawn since 8th grade. HSH takes in over 2,300+ animals every year and we rely on donations to make that work possible, but it doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun while we raise those funds!

How do I get a drawing of my pet?

Visit our special fundraising Facebook page. Simply click the Donate button on Facebook and submit $20 per photo (maximum of two pets per photo). Once you’ve paid, comment below the post with the photo of your pet and their name(s). Our team will then work their magic and reply with a picture of your homemade masterpiece as soon as we can. Email petportraits@hshobart with any questions.

There’s no limit to how many drawings you can purchase; the more donations we receive, the more we can support animals in our community! Of course, if you feel compelled to give more than asked, we’d be so grateful for your generosity. Our supporters are truly the best!

Shoutout to BARCS Animal Shelter and the Wisconsin Humane Society for their inspiration and dedication to pets in need ❤
