The National Geographic channel is airing a new series tonite. The program is called "Dog Town," and it has been filmed at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. BFAS is one of the shelters that the Painting a Dog a Day project supports - in 2007, dog-a-day sales resulted in donations of over $1100 to this shelter alone!
I have a small dog-a-day painting hanging in Dog Town. It depicts a mixed breed dog wearing a bandanna. Mr. Bones' portrait (pictured above) was commissioned by a BFAS volunteer, a woman who lives on the East Coast, but spends her vacation in southern Utah volunteering at the shelter. She asked me to paint Mr. Bones, one of Dog Town's long time residents, and send the painting to the shelter. It will go with Mr. Bones, when he finds his forever home.
If you can, try to catch the program, or set your DVR/Tevo to record it, and see what your dog-a-day dollars are doing to help animals in dire circumstances.
It's always refreshing to hear about The Good that is happening in our world, every day, by regular people, consistantly.
