"Kitties In Love" is featured on page 68 of the 2010 Paws For Charity Art Book.
Information from Lynn's etsy shop:We are very happy to announce that we have received permission to be an official part of the clean up effort in the gulf through the Louisiana Marine Mammal and Sea Turtle Rescue Program (LMMSTRP). Audubon Nature Institute is the coordinator of LMMSTRP. Audubon holds the Louisiana state permit to rescue, rehabilitate and release marine mammals and sea turtles. Because the animals cannot be released back into their native habitat, they must be housed until the Gulf is safe for release. The rescue and rehabilitation of each sea turtle is estimated at $5,000 for equipment, supplies, medication and veterinary staff time. http://www.auduboninstitute.org/gulf-oil-spill-resources
50% of the purchase price of all "Matthew an Me Turtle" paintings will be donated to this cause.
50 % of the other sales in our shop will help support Etsy for Animals' charity of the month. EFA's September Charity of the Month is Defenders of Wildlife http://www.defenders.org/about_us/index.php
“Companion animals are near and dear to my heart. That's why I'm thrilled to be a part of this project. Over the years we have provided forever homes for a variety of cats who have out lived their humans.” - Lynn
