Back in 2012, I was approached by a small non-profit organization at North Carolina State University, called the Turtle Rescue Team. This non-profit group run by students in the College of Veterinary Medicine provides medical, surgical and husbandry services to turtles in need in order to release them back into the wild. They asked me to donate one of my turtle prints to their 2nd Annual Turtle Team Rescue Benefit Sale. I gladly accepted, and since then I’ve made it a goal of my business to help support animals with my art whenever I can.
You can help give back as well. Portions of every purchase at zooettes.com will go to a charity that helps animals in need.
To be honest, I would rather you donate directly to an animal charity, but, if you like my art and decide to purchase from my store, then there’s the added benefit of knowing that a portion of sales goes directly to an organization that supports animals.
