The second annual ‘Painted Pets’ auction presented by Pets In Need of Greater Cincinnati features 20 one‑of‑a‑kind works of art by local and regional artists. The online auction is now live and continues through Pets In Need’s annual fundraising event, Petcasso, on Saturday, November 18.

The Painted Pets are on display at various locations throughout Cincinnati including Indigenous, The Bonbonerie and English Traditions in O’Bryonville; as well as Cockerill, Eye 1, Poeme, Castle House, Miller Gallery, and Khakis in Hyde Park Square.  For a complete list of locations go to‑pets/.
