ABOUT ARTISTS FOR ANIMALS
Artists for Animals, a 501(c)(3) organization, is a group of artists, sculptors, musicians, writers and animal lovers in support of animal rescue charities in North Texas. Originally founded in 2010, the nonprofit’s mission is to bring more art to people and, in turn, help find homes for more animals.

Teresa Berg, a nationally-recognized fine arts photographer, and Erin Hannigan, Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s Principal Oboe and 2018 recipient of the Ford Musician Awards for Excellence in Community Service, first began Artists for Animals by fusing their talents of photography and music in support of animal rescue efforts in North Texas. Since then the organization has grown, attracting more and more artists around North Texas.

Throughout the year, Artists for Animals hosts creative-driven fundraisers including the inspirational Concert for Kindness and an annual dog calendar, where former homeless pets are beautifully photographed. Since its inception, the nonprofit has raised more than $300,000 for several North Texas animal rescues.

ABOUT OPERATION KINDNESS
Founded in 1976, Operation Kindness is the original and largest no-kill shelter in North Texas. Its mission is to care for homeless cats and dogs in a no-kill environment until each is adopted into responsible homes and to advocate humane values and behavior. In its 42 years of operation, Operation Kindness has saved more than 100,000 animals. Annually the shelter assists over 5,000 dogs and cats, caring for an average of 300 animals daily with another 150-200 animals in foster homes. Operation Kindness partners with 47 North Texas municipal shelters and rescues to save animals from euthanasia.
