CALL FOR ART
START PLANNING FOR OUR
MARCH FUNDRAISER!
Special call for art: FAAS/FBCA Fundraiser
 

We have done a lot of running in circles chasing our tails to get ready for the big online FBCA fundraiser with Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS).  There are many tricks to learn for an online event, so we are postponing the event until March 2021. This means that our 2D and craft artists will have more time to prepare too! 

CREATE your own stunning art for our online auction. Whether it is pet-related or scenes of Alameda or California, you can submit your original art for this wonderful cause. Deadline to submit art is February 15.
