Programs include: Planned Pethood, which provides low cost or free spay/neuter, Healthy Pets for all provides free pop up veterinary clinics throughout the County, the Door to Door program where Animal Control officers provide a variety of free pet supplies and services, and the One-Stop program provides low-cost rabies vaccinations, microchips, and dog licenses. The Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter is supported by over 400 volunteers and foster families who provide thousands of hours of assistance to shelter staff at both shelters.

About the Painting Experience ~ Simply send us a picture of your favorite fur baby and we will hand sketch your animal's portrait onto a 12 x 12 canvas and walk you through the steps to paint your own portrait!  No experience necessary and all art supplies included.  Proceeds go to the SCC Animal Shelter.  The tented festivities will be held at the SCCAS NEW Benefit Shop at 870 17th Ave Santa Cruz CA (on the corner of Felt).

The iconic Artist Andy Warhol is a Pop Art legend.  He created mass production of images printed and painted over and over again in bold colors.  He used Marilyn Monroe as one of his most popular mass production subjects and he colored her image every color imaginable.

This class is a colorful twist on our classic "old school" version of Paint Your Pet which is more realistic in construction and color.  In this class we will concentrate on all colors of the rainbow and channel our inner Warhol!  Let's PAINT!
