Art and Dogs, Dogs and Art! PAWCASSO!!!!!!!!

The Homeward Trails Animal Rescue and Animal Welfare League of Arlington will be pawing the 8th Annual PawCasso Event Charity Art Auction to benefit local shelter animals!

The event will be held on Saturday, November 7th from 6 p.m.-11 p.m. at the historic Terminal A at Reagan National Airport. All proceeds from the event will directly support Homeward Trails’ Medical Fund and will provide food, shelter and medical support for animals at the Animal Welfare League of Arlington.

Barking pawsome, the event features a live auction of 35 original pieces of art from local artists including paintings, prints, ceramics and quilts. A silent auction will feature nearly 100 donations from businesses to include a variety of prizes from spa and restaurant certificates, doggy and kitty gift baskets to an African safari travel package. Dr. Katy Nelson host of The Pet Show on News Channel 8 and Scott Thuman, reporter will assist with the live auction.

Pawcellent news- this year, event attendees are welcome to bring their dogs to PawCasso. Four-legged guests will enjoy a doggy treat bar courtesy of Dogma Bakery and will be pampered by volunteer dog walkers.
