For the past three years I’ve been involved in the Berkeley East Bay Humane Society’s Purrcasso art auction. All proceeds go to the animal shelter to help out the cats and dogs there. The shelter suffered a devastating fire last spring, so we are really trying hard to raise funds this year. If you are an artist interested in donating, please visit for directions. If you are an art (or animal) lover, please join us for the art auction this coming Saturday night or the craft show on Sunday.
