My artist friend Beth Parker made the sweetest painting titled Barbados Beach Shack. I love that painting and I have a card of it in my art studio. It inspired me to create my own little beach shack. Mine is titled “Little Blue Beach Shack” and it is a donation painting I’ve created for the Todos Santos Furball and Art Auction that will be held in February 2011.
The Furball is a fundraiser that has been held over the years and is organized by our friend Angelique in Todos Santos.
A quote from the Baja Western Onion says, “These funds are used for the on-going effort to spay and neuter the dogs and cats of Todos Santos and Pescadero. Local vets perform these operations weekly, both in Todos Santos and at El Refugio in Pescadero. In addition, there is an annual clinic when U.S. vets come to our community and perform surgeries on two hundred or more dogs and cats.”
Angelique’s passion is the animals and especially the kitties!
Angelique runs “Kitty Heaven” which is a refuge for homeless cats in the Todos Santos and surrounding area.
The cats run freely in a sheltered area that she had built. They are well cared for, spayed or neutered and their shots updated. All are up for adoption.
But Angelique needs help with maintaining Kitty Heaven. She can’t do it alone.
There are about 25-30 cats at any one time at Kitty Heaven being cared for.
Angelique knows them all by name. She knows each of their stories. Where they came from and for how long they’ve been at Kitty Heaven.
If you can make a donation to help Angelique with Kitty Heaven, it would be greatly appreciated! See the link below. Thanks!
