Art 4 Animals (A4A) was started in July 2016 by an aspiring artist who was working as a Registered Veterinary Technician at a clinic specializing in serving low income families, animal shelters, and a range of animal rescue organizations. She has a great passion for Canadian artists and envisioned creating an organization that supported artists, disadvantaged people, and animals.
A4A works with all forms of art including, but not limited to:
- Physical artists
- Writers, and performers
- Crafters and handmade products
We try to support local artists and crafters through promotion and unique opportunities to showcase and sell their work.
We also share a portion of our funds with like-minded charities and not-for-profits that share our vision and principles.
In November 2017, the Art 4 Animals Adoption Centre opened in Oxbury Mall in London (at Oxford and Highbury). At our Centre, we sell local art and crafts, and display rescued cats available for adoption. The Centre is open each Saturday 11am-4pm. We will also rent tables to local artists and writers for a small fee that becomes a donation towards our life saving programs.
A4A acknowledges its dedicated administrators and volunteers (many commit full time hours) who share a passion for focusing on our unique undertaking. We are building our infrastructure and education programs to teach Canadians how they can be a part of the change that is needed.
