Gary, our beloved cat, inspired me to create Portrait Your Pet. He was a rescue and now is an important part of our family, our fur baby! His notable stature is seen in his beautiful portrait (see store profile picture). He is now Lord Gary, a unique furry gentleman, in keeping with how he probably sees himself as lord of the manner and head of the household. Because I think that shelters, rescue groups, and the humane society are so important in not only saving animals but in giving so many of us our very own fur babies, I also want a portion of the proceeds from this project to go to them and help them keep doing their wonderful work.
