MIDDLETOWN, RI — Amid the coornavirus crisis, Gov. Gina Raimondo has repeatedly called for Rhode Islanders to be creative in their ways to make it through the shutdowns. Middletown’s Potter League for Animals is doing just that.

On Thursday, the shelter announced that it is “putting the ‘fun’ back in fundraising” by offering to draw pictures of pets in exchange for a donation.

“If you donate $15 to Potter League for Animals, we’ll draw your pet. The catch? We’re a whole lot better at caring for animals than we are at drawing them,” the organization said.

Staff and volunteers are ready to make their best effort at artwork, with skills ranging from talented to … not so talented.

To take part, make a donation through the organization’s Facebook. Then, post a picture of your pet and a comment saying that you’ve donated, and the staff will get to work on a masterpiece.

There’s no limit to how many pictures can be purchased, and the organization asks for $15 per pet face.
