Paint Your Pet! A Fundraiser for Magnificent Mutts & Meows Rescue

Paint Your Pet! Elmhurst Animal Care Center happily invited clients, the Elmhurst community and animal lovers to participate in a Paint Your Pet Fundraiser to benefit rescue partner, Magnificent Mutts & Meows Rescue! The three hour class took place in our training room within the hospital where the talented staff at Pinot's Palette Elmhurst guided the class - everything from brush use to color selection. The portraits turned out amazing and are a wonderful keepsake for those participating! A portion of each registration benefitted our hard-working rescue partners at Magnificent Mutts & Meows Rescue. The event also hosted a silent auction for additional fundraising opportunities.

Yoga: Cats & Mats

With the goal of encouraging wellness and developing healthy habits, we teamed up with Magnificent Mutts and Meows Rescue for a couple of fun, feline filled yoga classes! The two classes we’ve held so far have allowed us to raise money for our local rescue friends and we’ve have been having a blast during this fun, beginner level class instructed by a long-time yogi. Many of the adoptable cats and kittens wandering around the room have found their forever homes as well!
