We invite you to celebrate all the weird and wonderful ways pets make life totally SUPER! Dogs, cats, bunnies, pigs and other furry, scaly and feathered friends are all featured in paintings, prints, plush, and sculptures from 48 artists. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Home Dog LA, a pet intervention program located at our local North Central Animal Shelter.
* UPDATE: Home Dog LA is now betterTogether Forever *

About Miranda Dressler:
Show co-curator Miranda Dressler is a LA illustrator working in animation (Disney, Cartoon Network, Fox) and product design. She's been drawing dogs instead of doing her homework since she could hold a pencil and loves making animal inspired artwork. Miranda has a big fluffy white dog but wishes she could adopt every dog in need: which is why she's so happy to raise donations for a great cause through this show. Check her out on Instagram! @mirandaright
About Leanna Lin:
Show co-curator Leanna owns a playful gift shop and art gallery, Leanna Lin's Wonderland, where the show will be exhibited! After losing their first pup Richy in 2011, she became more aware of the homeless animal situation in L.A. and she's rescued 3 dogs since.
About Home Dog LA:
Home Dog LA believes that every family deserves to keep their beloved pets, even when they come across hard times. Their mission is to prevent economically stressed families of North Central Los Angeles from surrendering their pets to the shelter by presenting them with alternative options. They offer access to resources, education, and information, all designed to help keep pets in their homes. Ultimately, they hope their work makes the community a more compassionate place to live.
This show is dedicated to all of our pets that have passed away, our true Wonderpets for life! We want to especially pay honor to our artist's pets that have passed away. They will always live in our hearts.
