Dogs are a gift to us all. Let's give something back.
I offer my services to shelters and rescue organizations at no charge. If making a beautiful pawtrait of a homeless dog or cat helps him or her find a loving family, money is meaningless by comparison.
In addition, a portion of my profits from You Lucky Dog goes to support Animal Aid Unlimited, AAU is known the world over for its free treatment of sick or wounded street animals in India. The organization is big on education and holds frequent spaying / neutering and vaccination drives. Animal Aid works 365 days a year toward a future in which all living beings are treated with compassion and love.
Below are two videos that show the kinds of cases AAU takes on. Fair warning: the footage is upsetting at first, but it gets better. Just try to keep in the happy tears when you see how life and joy soon return to these wonderfully resilient animals.
If you have the means to help rescue the next victim, please consider making a donation.
