We had a blast at PawCasso 2014 on October 4!  Many thanks to all who came out and joined us for this fabulous event and the countless volunteers, artists, and silent auction donors who made it all possible.  Your generosity and support helped us raise more than $25,000 for the Homeward Trails medical fund!

We are thrilled to announce that PawCasso 2013 raised $25,000 for the Homeward Trails Medical Fund. This fund allows Homeward Trails Animal Rescue to take in animals with correctable, but often expensive medical needs.

Two hundred art and animal lovers joined the festivities to make it the most successful PawCasso event to date!
The evening, held at The Washington Post, featured the live art of more than 30 local artists, which alone generated over $10,000! Julie Carey, Northern Virginia Bureau Chief for NBC, emceed the event, which also included the live auction of four fantastic non-art items including trips, private catered dinners and wine tastings.

The evening ended with dancing to the music of Bad Hair Day!

We thank all of our wonderful artists, donors, volunteers and attendees! See you next year on April 26, 2014!
