We assist low income individuals, employed in the arts, in covering the cost of medical care for their animal companions.
According to the new report, Artists in the Workforce, issued by the National Endowment of the Arts in May 2009, those employed in the arts comprise a significant portion of our workforce yet earn less- despite advanced education.
The report stated: “They make things and perform services, just like other workers, and these goods and services have value- not merely in lofty and spiritual terms but also in dollars and cents. Without denying the higher purposes of the artistic vocation…artists play an important role in America’s cultural vitality and economic prosperity.”
Our passion lies in the arts and in animal welfare. This organization is an attempt to show that devotion to all of our artist and animal friends. Many artists are not able to afford health insurance for themselves never mind pet insurance and often have to choose caring for themselves or their animals. We provide financial assistance to low income artists directly to their veterinarians to help keep their pets happy and healthy.
Support the arts through supporting animal welfare!
Your financial support will enable us to acquire administrative, office, and promotional supplies and start testing the animal care reimbursement process with local artists and vets. They are waiting!
