Readers of MUTTS can bid for the chance to own the original hand-drawn artwork from one of Patrick McDonnell’s Shelter Stories strips. The strip ran in newspapers on April 30, 2007. Patrick creates his series for two weeks each year, to bring attention to animals awaiting permanent homes. The drawing is also signed by Patrick.
The auction is a fundraiser for The Humane Society of the United States. To the Rescue! is The HSUS’s signature national benefit to support the lifesaving work of the Animal Rescue Team, which saves animals across the country from natural disasters, cruelty, and neglect. The events will be held in New York City on November 15, 2013, and in Palm Beach, FL on January 23, 2014. Learn more about the event and RSVP to attend.
Bids are now being accepted for Patrick’s strip. The auction runs through November 20, 2013 at 3 pm EST.
