the dog days of summer



We’re so excited to celebrate our beautiful pets while helping new rescues find their forever homes!

Make a donation of $40 or more
and one of our volunteer artists will create a fun portrait of your pet!

Our volunteer artists range in age and artistic ability. Some lean heavy on the ‘volunteer’ and not much on the ‘artist’, others are professional artists.
All will put in a good effort to make you smile or at least chuckle!

One Of Our Favorites so far

Our artists range from Professional Disney Artists to Passionate Young Kiddos! As part of the artistic process and fun, we pair randomly.

Make sure to share your final portraits on social media and tag Brighter Days so we can all admire them together!

Our Mission

Each dog varies with how much we pay for it…  Some dogs we spend $200 on, and others who come in with heartworm, broken bones, viruses, can cost us $2,000.  Recently, we rescued Pickles, who’s medical bills alone will be over $8,000. Donations make it possible to give these pups the attention they need and keep resucing others.
