Artist Mark Barone has set up his Act Of Dog site, the sales go to rescue shelter dogs. It’s a sad and yet wonderful group of paintings. Over five thousand portraits of shelter dogs killed in the system. PBS is doing a documentary on the exhibit and it’s truly eye opening.
I’m sharing your link with my sister, who has The Shiloh Project in VA, and is passionate about saving pound and shelter dogs.
Fascinating and beautiful story:

I love old dogs. As I distributed chondroitin/glucosamine the other evening, I realized how few dogs needed it compared to the number who did. My Bloodhound needs more exercise – her hips, with atrophied muscles already when I adopted her just over a year ago, are worse and she is toeing over occasionally. My vet has her at 10. I was called and personally asked to adopt her, because her time was up – the hound person wept when she knew she was saved. So, one day I go out with the “speedsters,” and the next day, I go out with the slower, though certainly not tottering, dogs. Two at a time. I took my foster mini Dachshunds to the vet for their yearlies, then watched them enjoy being out of the yard. They, too, are older, 11 and 12, I think. We went to Panera where they shared a four cheese soufflé. And yet, I have a couple younger dogs who make me smile with their antics and yard zooming. The two younger Beagles “hunt” under the trees in the field, sounding off so I can hear each one. The photo you have with this post is absolutely lovely.
A nice quick video from Baytown Animal Shelter volunteer that shows a scared dog that perks right up after being removed from the shelter.
