Pets That Paint

Is your pet artistic? I keep threatening to whip up some nontoxic pet-safe paints and have my corgis try their paws at art work. In looking around for some ideas, I can across a number of animals who do their own creative artwork. Many of these talented animal artists also raise money for charity.

I also found some pet-safe paint kits that you can buy for your pet. So, if you want to give painting a try with your pet, you can get a kit and let your pet’s creativity flow. See the slideshow on pets that paint to learn more and to see some painting pets in action.

    At the Wild Horse Rescue Center, horses create paintings that are sold to support the center, which is dedicated to the preservation of America's wild horses. The center rescues, rehabilitates, and finds new homes for mustangs and burros. It also provides educational clinics and seminars to the public. 

     

    You can see more on how the horses create their paintings on the Wild Horse Rescue Center paintings page
