Art UnleashedThank you, thank you, thank you!
Art Unleashed, a live and silent auction of original art, netted over $130,000! The event was held on Saturday, August 20 at the Ritz Charles Overland Park. These much needed funds will go towards saving and improving the lives of the thousands of animals who receive care in our shelter, clinic and programs each year. If you attended Art Unleashed, we'd appreciate you taking a few minutes to fill out our Art Unleashed Survey to help us make next year's event even better!
