PAWS and the artists of the Joseph House Art Gallery are putting together a special exhibit, "Dog Days of Summer -- a Celebration of Animals in Art." The exhibit begins July 4 at the Joseph House, 828 Broadway.
The artists have painted dogs, cats, horses, farm animals and wildlife in a variety of media.
There will also be hand-painted cookie jars filled with doggy or kitty treats.
A silent auction for a framed, limited edition giclee print of "How About a Hug," a portrait of Dodger, is up for bids.
Roseanne Marie will paint a portrait of your pet for a $500 donation or a portrait of your pet and yourself for $2,000. Anyone who makes a donation to PAWS, buys art or a cookie jar, will receive a coupon from Country's.
PAWS will also have a booth for anyone interested in adopting a pet.
All activities begin at 11 a.m. July 4. A reception for the exhibit will be 6-8 p.m.
