Poorly Dawn Pets 🥴 Fundraiser!!🐾🐾🐾🐾

Ohh we are not artists by any stretch of the imagination, but staff, board of directors, and volunteers jumped for the chance to draw your pet (probably poorly) 😬 to help raise money for the homeless animals of OCHS!
🪤 The catch: We have a lot of talent surrounding OCHS but drawing is NOT one of them and this very well could get interesting!!
How do you get your very own one-of-a-kind POORLY DRAWN pet portrait?
Between: Wednesday November 15th through November 30th we will be accepting your pet photo submissions.
⭐️1.) Make a donation of $25.00 VIA Stripe or in person at the OCHS Adoption Center.
1 pet per photo please!!
More than 1 pet? Please make an additional donation.
⭐️2.)Post a photo of your pet in the comment section of our facebook post, along with the email address you would like to receive your portrait!
If you are uncomfortable posting your photo and email address, no worries- send them to us by fb message or email adoption@ochspets.org
🎨 🖌 Your artist will get to work!🖌🎨
You will receive your scanned & emailed portrait within the next 2 weeks!
✔️ This is a digital fundraiser
👉How you print it is on you!
♦️You are welcome to your original if we have access to it. Some of our artists are not local.
Sooo your portrait is bad?? GREAT‼️ That’s the point‼️
No redos and no refunds, your pet portrait is yours forever! 🤭🤣
