Painting for Paws


Animal lovers who also love art will want to check out Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary’s Painting for Paws Art Show and Silent Auction this Saturday from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. at the Pavilions Shopping Center (in the space formerly occupied by The Sharper Image). On hand as part of the event’s silent auction: painting masterpieces created by the Happy Tails cats and dogs, along with pictures and bios of each four-pawed artist. Animal paintings not your thing? The silent auction will also include restaurant gift certificates, jewelry and more with proceeds supporting Happy Tails, an all-volunteer, no-kill animal sanctuary whose mission is to rescue abused and abandoned animals and find them loving homes. Admission is $10. Want to help out even more? Dine before or after the event at Piatti—also located in the Pavilions. Mention that you are attending Painting for Paws when you make your reservation or tell your server upon arrival, and 10 percent of your bill will support the animals. For reservations call (916) 649-8885.
