Pets create art at Paw Casso event

Area animals got a chance to show off their artistic side at an event in Niles Saturday.

The Close to Home Animal Rescue held its first ever “Paw Casso” event. Pets, with the help of their owners, created works of art using everything from their paws to their tails.

People made a $15 donation, then received a canvass and kid-friendly paint to create a masterpiece.

The non-profit organization is an all foster-based network and does not have a shelter. It provides food and vet care for people who offer their homes.

“I think a lot of people want to give back because they do see how much heart goes into it and how much money. Because our adoption fees are only $165, and our dogs are fully vetted, spaded, neutered, rabies. So, I think people just see the heart in it all and they wanna come back and give more,” said Amy Quinlan, Co-founder, Close to Home Animal Rescue.

The organization has 23 foster homes throughout northeast Ohio.
