Artwalk for the animals

Press release from Alachua County

The third annual “Artwalk for the Animals” is on Saturday, April 18, 2020, from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Alachua County Animal Services (3400 N.E. 53rd Ave, Gainesville). Proceeds from the Artwalk for the Animals are used for the Heart 2 Heart program, which provides medicine for heartworm-positive animals. 

Irby Elementary School students have painted original portraits of shelter animals, and the shelter animals themselves have created their own original artwork, which will be on display in the shelter lobby. Community artists will also be onsite to sell their art during the event. There will be chances to win prizes throughout the day.

Donations of non-toxic acrylic paint, canvases, art supplies, and prizes for the event can be dropped off at the shelter during normal business hours (Tuesday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.).
