Amazingly Bad Pet Portraits Offered by Oakland Animal Services

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Every now and again something amazing happens in the world of bad, pet art.  And when that happens, rest assured is on the case!

Oakland Animal Services announced the kickoff of its 4th annual Bad Art Fundraiser!  Meaning you can donate to help sheltered animals in the Bay Area and get a custom, unprofessional, and amazing portraits of your own pet if you donate to help animals.

And let’s face it, many of these portraits are priceless:

“Bigger and Badder: Bad Art 4 is Here!”

Here’s how it works: beginning August 21, for a donation of $50, you’ll receive an electronic masterpiece of your BFF. And for $125, they’ll mail you the hard copy of the artwork.

How to get your portrait

  1. Make an online gift of $50 (or more) to Friends of Oakland Animal Services (FOAS). Your donation must be made August 21 through August 28.
  2. Complete the form that will be presented to you after making your donation. (You will be asked to upload your donation receipt and a photo of your pet.)
  3. Electronic art (gifts of $50 or more) and hardcopy artwork ($125 or more) will be delivered by mid to late October.
  4. Request as many portraits as you’d like! One photo per donation please.
  5. Tell your friends and family so they don’t get FOMO!
