Young artists needed by midnight; must love dogs

Lori Schmidt

The Franklin County Dog Shelter wants help making the world a more colorful place for the canines currently in their care. That’s why they’re asking for budding artists under the age of 16 to draw one of their adoptable dogs

All such drawings emailed to [email protected] by 11:59 p.m. will win what a shelter spokesperson called “a small prize.” 

Emails should also include the name of the artist and that of the dog they are portraying. 


Once all submissions are received, they will be hung around the building, and if the dog in the picture is still housed there, the artwork will be used to decorate their specific kennel. 

Fortunately, though, dogs are being adopted quickly. There have been 653 dogs that have found new homes since June 1.  

So if you know a young student who needs an art project today, or you just want to encourage the next Puplo Picasso or Ruffael, have them email.

(Note: All dog photos accompanying this piece are dogs that were available for adoption as of Monday morning.)
