Leashed and well-behaved pets and their owners are welcome to tour the Shemer Art Center’s latest exhibit, “Animal Other,” during a special Pet Day set for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12. The Shemer is located at 5005 E. Camelback Road.
Pet owners can commission a special portrait from artists available in booths on the veranda, or purchase a caricature drawing to benefit the Shemer. In addition, your pet can create a one-of-a-kind paw print and/or painting under the tutelage of Shemer instructors. Refreshments include water and animal crackers.
Consider adopting your own “Animal Other” to take home with you as you visit several on-site animal rescue groups including: AZK9, Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary, Brambley Hedge Rabbit Rescue, Safe Haven for Animals, and Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA.
Special packages from area pet shops have been donated to the Shemer Art Center for a raffle. Tickets will be 3 for $10.
Admission to the Shemer Art Center is free, however, there is a suggested donation of $7. For more information, visit www.shemercenter.org or call 602-262-4727.
