Avery Ryan, 5, loves to draw, paint, and color....and she loves kittens! Together with her mom, Ashley, Avery fosters kittens from local shelters and rescues. Avery helps with all aspects of caring for foster kittens, from feeding, cleaning up messes, helping with weight checks, and of course, her favorite part, socialization!
Avery wanted to do more for kittens and cats beyond the ones she was fostering. She asked her parents if she could sell her artwork and give the money to kittens who needed it.
Together with Avery, RARF has created the Art by Ave initiative! Although only in its beginning stage, Art by Ave aims to engage and connect with children from all over to create artwork that will, in turn, raise funds for animals (cats & kittens specifically) nationwide. Stay tuned for updates as this initiative grows!
All donations made to the Art by Ave initiative will be restricted to supporting programs and needs relating to cats and kittens nationwide.
