Animal art up for grabs Friday at SPCA Wake open house
Posted November 21, 2013
Animal lovers in the Triangle can start the holiday shopping season a bit early Friday at the SPCA of Wake County's 9th annual Kitten & Puppy art show and open house.
The event, which raises money for the animals at the adoption center, will be held from 6 to 9 p.m.
Organizers will sell original art and accessories painted by puppies and kittens from the SPCA, and refreshments will be served. Paintings are paired with a portrait of the artist who created them, then framed and hung on the wall.
Prices typically range between $12 and $50.
Of course, those in attendance will be able to visit with animals available for adoption. Officials won't accept adoption applications during Friday's event, but staff and volunteers will be available to answer questions.
People will also be able to meet the SPCA's new executive director, Kim Janzen.
Janzen began her work at SPCA Wake on Nov. 4 after spending 10 years at the Kansas Humane Society. Janzen also serves on the board of directors for the Society of Animal Welfare Administrators.
