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. Check her out on Instagram! @LeannaLinsWonderland
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 betterTogether Forever:
betterTogether Forever offers resources and referrals to at-risk, under-resourced, under-served, housing-challenged pet parents in Los Angeles, California so that they can keep their pets, keep them safe and healthy and NOT have to surrender them to an animal shelter, give them up, or abandon them on the streets. Check them out on Instagram! @PeopleAndPetsBTF
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.
