Seeking Animal Angels

I painted 5500 shelter dogs to show what we extinguish every day in the USA and to ensure that each soul is honored and remembered. Thankfully, a PBS documentary captured that arduous and emotionally challenging 4-year journey.

The travesty that degrades our humanity is that they didn't get the chance to be adopted. So, I need you to be their ANGEL and adopt one of the 5500 paintings of promise to help us save tomorrow's animals from the same fate. Without you, another life is lost.

Every portrait saves a life and allows our partners at the Humane Society Naples to rescue dogs & cats from around the nation. Thank you for belonging to our 5500 collector's circle for as little as $1-a day!

Art from the Heart

We paint with purpose. We make our mark!

The Highest art is created for social impact

Paving the way, Mark Barone painted 5500 shelter dogs to depict the number destroyed, every day in the USA.

Social impact art, ignites the spark for deeper conversations and potentiates more compassion.

It’s crucial to our well-being and safety to have our voices heard in society and maintain the freedom to express different ideas, without fear of being silenced or oppressed.

Because art has the power to illuminate what is hidden and bring it to the light, it can forever change the status-quo.
