Join host Robert Forto as he welcomes, artist Mark Barone and Marina Dervan of an organization called An Act of Dog.
Barone singlehandedly painted 5500 Shelter Dogs, fronting the revolution for compassionate solutions. We had Barone and Dervan on as guests several years ago when they first got started with this project and after all these years, and following their progress on social media, I thought it was time to have them back on to talk about their amazing work.
“We’re creating the first Museum of Compassion in the world, designed to illuminate, educate and lift our animal welfare consciousness to new heights. This Museum will allow us to build a stable, forever fund, that will distribute 100% of your donations towards the salvation of shelter animals only.
Our charity is committed to the immediate salvation of all healthy and adoptable animals and will be the only fund in America, giving 100% to support to shelter reform, rescues, fosters, rehabilitation centers, groups fighting BSL and compassionate education.” ~from their website
Stay tuned for an upcoming special on PBS and the opening of a museum to showcase this very admirable cause.
