Bunny art show and adoption
Submitted By Joan Wegner
It's time to treat rabbits and other small animals with as much love and respect as dogs and cats. Many people buy small animals at pet stores because they are unaware that they are available at shelters and from rescue groups. PetFinder lists over 500 rescue bunnies in the Bay Area.
The Bunny Art Show showcases the work of professional artists and young art students who have created portraits of adoptable bunnies offered by the House Rabbit Society, Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary, individual rescues and volunteers from local shelters. Artists create portraits of our rabbits looking for forever homes and help show rabbits as unique, worthwhile pets.
Held at the East Bay SPCA throughout the month of September, the show is not an adoption event; rabbits are only available for adoption on the first Saturday of the month.
Eleven artists - Michelle Chan, Eileen Crowley, Valerie Daft, Carol Hart, Kathleen Hill, Lenore Kreit, Diana Marion, Christine McCall, Linda Ryan, Marcy Schaaf and Shelly Yen - have created more than 60 portraits.
Artwork can be purchased during regular business hours at the East Bay SPCA, Tri-Valley. The SPCA will receive 20% of all sales to support their work.
