For one day, open your heart to some of the greatest works of art in our local community both painted and living as you meet and greet some of Sarasota’s artists and cute four-legged pals. The Muse Galleria and The Humane Society of Sarasota County will collaborate on September 1 in an effort to raise awareness about pet adoption through the encouragement of the Sarasota arts community with The Dog Days of Summer Event. The event will run from 3pm to 8pm at the gallery and provide HSSC’s mobile adoption bus on-site to educate and promote pet adoption.
Alongside the bus, visitors can meet some of the local artists featured in the gallery, snack on appetizers and beverages, receive discounts for artwork and participate in the raffle. All proceeds benefit the Humane Society, which shelters almost 4,000 pets every year and offers not just pet adoption but obedience classes, affordable neuter and spay services and programs to benefit seniors and children with special needs.
