2023 Paws for Life Draws for Life

Fourth Annual Fundraiser

It's once again time to have some fun at our fur-babies' expense. Think about all the times they walked across your keyboard or barked during a conference call, woke you up by pouncing directly on your bladder or by yelping right in your ear.

If you're new to our game, here's how it works:

  1. Find your favorite photo of your pet (any species)

  2. Donate at least $10 to this fundraiser, then upload your pet's photo to it

  3. Wait patiently while our amateur artists recreate your very own, exact, possibly, maybe close, potentially good, but more than likely, very bad resemblance to your pet's portrait.

  4. Laugh and share when we publish the masterpiece back to the fundraiser for all to enjoy

If amateur renditions are not for you, you can donate $50 to the fundraiser and your photo will be assigned to a professional artist.



Donate $10 and it's a roll of the dice. Will you get one of our volunteers who is a pretty decent drawer? Or will you get one of our volunteers who couldn't draw a circle to save their life?

There are a limited number of slots reserved for a pet portrait by a professional. $50 per portrait, one pet per photo. Slots will be reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis and to the highest donors, so get your photo in now

Our "artists" are creative and are able to use the medium of their choice - crayon, pencil, pen, marker, sharpie, paint - sky is the limit.

It's all about having fun while raising money for homeless dogs and cats.
No matter what, we promise to put a smile on your face, plus your donation will go directly to the homeless pets in our care.


While $10 is the minimum to receive a perfectly priceless relic of your pet, like all of us, Paws for Life's operations and finances have been significantly impacted by COVID-19 for the past three years, especially as corporate donors like Petco and Amazon have ended their charitable giving programs. Donations have taken a serious down-swing, but animals still remain in need. Any support is greatly appreciated!

Facebook pays all the processing fees for you, so 100% of your donation goes directly to Paws for Life.

If you'd like to volunteer to draw and help raise money for homeless pets (no skills, no talent required), email It's a blast!
