Check out Dogs for the Deaf. It is a great non-profit that trains dogs for the people with hearing disabilities and rescues dogs from around the Northwest and California. Dogs for the Deaf (DFD) resides in Central Point, Oregon. Central Point, Oregon is about 5 miles away from Jacksonville where I live. Dogs for the Deaf is one of my favorite local charities.
Recently, I answered a call for local artists to donate artwork to their cause. Today I was blessed to deliver three dog portraits to Kristine at DFD. Soon the portraits will be available as a set of cards—and possibly more—through DFD. Hopefully my pet portraits will help raise money for a cause I believe in—nothing gives me more joy than to help others. You may also purchase prints of these three dogs on my Zazzle website: http://www.zazzle.com/hollyherick. (prints coming soon)
If you have never visited Dogs for the Deaf, I urge you to drive on out the the base of the Table Rock Mountains and take a tour. visit the Dogs for the Deaf web page for more information.
If you are interested in having your own pet painted in this style head to Holly Herick Design and contact me. Or send me an email for more details firstname.lastname@example.org
