Here are the groups I've chosen to receive donations. If there's a group you'd prefer to donate to, just let me know and I will be happy to do it.
Here on the Eastern Shore, the SPCA chapter in Onley helps many, many animals find forever homes. This is a small shelter with a big job, and they do it well. There's not a lot of money on the Shore, so this group can really use our help. For more, click here: http://www.shorespca.com/
When I visited the Navajo Reservation in 2015 to paint, I was moved to tears by the reservation dogs. They roam, scavenging and begging, clearly getting little or no veterinary care. Good Dog Rez-Q helps abandoned animals on the reservation and in the surrounding areas. It's a small operation with a huge mission, and could definitely use our help.

Its mission is to "save them all," help create and foster an environment in which there are no unwanted pets. Its home is in Kanab, Utah, and it is an amazing and beloved institution.
