Animal Shelter Staff Draw Bad Pet Art To Raise Money, Have To Shut Fundraiser Down Due To Overwhelming Requests

The Wisconsin Humane Society in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has a lot of animals to take care of!

They’re actually the largest shelter in the whole state, and they see around 40,000 animals every single year.

Being a nonprofit organization that also receives no kind of funding, they really rely on donations to be able to give the animals at their shelter the best care possible.

Just a few days ago, the Wisconsin Humane Society came up with a very clever fundraiser, where they offered to have their staff members draw bad pet art to raise money for their animals.

It was so popular, they had to shut it down, but not before their people made some very fun drawings!

“It’s time to put the “fun” back in fundraising… if you donate $15 to the animals at WHS, we’ll draw your pet,” they said on their Facebook page.

“The catch? We’re a whole lot better at caring for animals than we are at drawing them.”

‘We have a pool of staff and volunteers standing by, eager to turn your animal into a timeless work of art (or at least make you laugh).”

“You *might* get one of our extremely talented artists, but we’ll be honest… you’ll probably get someone who can’t draw their way out of a paper bag.”

“WHS serves 40,000 animals every year and we rely on donations to make that work possible, but it doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun while we raise those funds!”

The Wisconsin Humane Society was absolutely overwhelmed by the number of requests they had from people asking if they would draw their pets.

Hopefully, they bring it back in the near future, as a lot of people commented on their Facebook post asking them to let them know if they would be doing another one soon.

In the meantime, check out some of my favorite drawings from their fundraiser, below!
