I’m proud to be a professional artist member of HeARTs Speak, providing web design, graphic design and community engagement consulting services pro bono for animal welfare organizations! 

HeARTs Speak is a nationally recognized 501c3 nonprofit organization that’s uniting art and advocacy to increase the visibility of shelter animals. They are dedicated to inspiring change for homeless animals across the globe through a variety of programs that leverage creativity and collaboration to ensure more animals are Seen and Saved each year while simultaneously elevating the image of shelter animals everywhere.

They do this through a variety of programs that offer resources and education to both artists and animal sheltering professionals to help increase adoptions and lifesaving impact…

  • Artists Helping Animals
    Artists Helping Animals is HeARTs Speak’s flagship program, made up of professional and hobbyist photographer and artist members who offer their creative services pro bono to animal shelters throughout the world. This program seeks to transform the image of shelter pets and ultimately save more lives. Each year, the Artists Helping Animals program impacts over 350,000 animals who are awaiting homes across the globe. Monthly, HeARTs Speak artist members are giving more than 15,000 hours of time and working in 1/3 of the animal shelters in the U.S. alone!
  • The Perfect Exposure Project
    HeARTs Speak’s Perfect Exposure Project was developed to increase the creative workforce in animal sheltering. This wonderful program empowers animal shelter staff and volunteers to provide positive exposure for the pets in their care through better photographs and new approaches to marketing.
  • HeARTs Speak EDU + Petblicity
    EDU is a program inspired by the need for marketing education and access to skill-building within the animal welfare community. EDU is an online library for content like downloadable guides, tools and templates, and video tutorials and webinars to make photography, social media, adoption promotion, and all-things-marketing available to anyone working or volunteering in animal welfare, no matter the skill set or background.
