Thanks to my monthly collaboration with the Kentucky Humane Society, I recently picked up a commission to paint a very large family of dogs (nearly all of which are Pomeranians). The canvas itself matches in size the enormity of this commission, which wouldn’t even fit in my car. 37 dogs take up a lot of space!
I promise you, there is a nonprofit out there for just about anything, even Pomeranian dogs! Although this painting was for a private client, it still serves as an ideal illustration to highlight the work of one such niche animal welfare organization, Ponderosa Pomeranian Rescue Inc.
Since starting this “art-meets-activism” website, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by several of my readers who have sent me links to animal rescue organizations that focus on a particular breed (James, the basset hound organization is still on my radar). Dallas based Ponderosa Pomeranian Rescue Inc. takes in, and cares for these mini dogs, and eventually finds adoptive homes for them. Their website is full of useful info about the breed, the adoption process, and success stories.
So, for all of the Dallas people I connected with while touring nonprofits in Texas earlier this year, this one’s for you.
