Driving Change Through Art

World-class Santa Fe artists have volunteered to create colorful and unique pet portraits for the shelter’s annual art initiative, Driving Change Through Art, for the third year. Talented artists will highlight your companion pet in a personalized masterpiece. 

Get Started

With a donation of $300 for one pet or $500 for two pets, an artist will capture your dog, cat or other critter on one 12” x 12” panel. These portraits will be on display to the public at pop up art venues in Santa Fe September through October, before being made available to take home in November. You may pick up your portrait at the animal shelter or request to receive it by mail by contacting Grace at gmontano@sfhumanesociety.org

“I support Driving Change Through Art because I’m a huge supporter of Santa Fe Animal Shelter.” Ginny Greninger, a longtime shelter volunteer and supporter said, “I wanted to honor a dear friend who passed too early and his beloved bunnies, Archie and Maggie, who were rehomed.”

Get ready to see your pet like you’ve never seen them before! Your pet’s portrait will be the artist’s interpretation and vision of what they see in combination with the information and photos you provide on the Driving Change Through Art submission form.

Don’t miss out on this exclusive opportunity! These portraits are available to a limited number of pets and their guardians and on a first-come, first-serve basis. Your generous donation will help cover the cost of a sick, injured, or neglected animal in need, while showing off your best friend to the Santa Fe community.
