T & Z Pawtraits, the creator of Simon’s coloring page, is one of the artists who will be contributing line art to Coloring for the Dogs! (Simon colored here by staff member River.)

We’re going to let you in on a secret…

The SPCA staff all agree – none of us ever quite grew out of coloring. After a stressful day at the shelter, we love to go home and pull out our favorite pens, markers, or colored pencils and make something pretty happen. And our favorite subject to color? Animals, of course!

So we’re making a coloring book! It’s going to be a very special coloring book, and we’re going to need your help to create it.

What if we told you that your favorite picture of your pet could be transformed into a coloring page? What if we started a rumor that there’s going to be a photo contest in the spring to find out who gets to be in the coloring book? Would you save up your best photos? Would you enter your pet?

We sure hope so! We can’t give out too many details yet… but we’re not just making a coloring book. Coloring for the Dogs is going to be something big. It’s going to make a lasting difference for the dogs here at the shelter.

Stay tuned!
