Little Studio On The Mesa Hosts Espanola Humane Paint Paw-Ty Fundraiser/Adoption Event

Española Humane will bring pets of all ages to a special event Saturday, Feb. 18, that features a unique paint your own pottery fundraising festivity. The 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. adoption event at Little Studio on the Mesa, 113 Longview Drive, White Rock, NM, spotlights adorable foster puppies and kittens, along with other pets. Participants may also paint their own ceramic cats and dogs for $15 each, with all proceeds benefitting Espanola Humane. The ceramic figurines will be kiln-fired and picked up at a later date, while the pets can be taken home the same day. Kittens and puppies are available for an adoption fee of $25; all adult pets at the event are fee waived. All pets are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and ready to go home to loving families. Joanne Kozuchowski, owner of the studio, said both children and adults enjoy coming up with creative colors for the ceramic animals. All paints are provided at the studio. A child might spend 15 minutes painting one, while an adult could take up to an hour if they wanted.
