St. Catharines, Ontario – The Lincoln County Humane Society in St. Catharines has launched a series of pup-made paintings – or pup-casso paintings (aptly named after the famous painter, Pablo Picasso).

Stemming from TikTok sensations, the LCHS provided their adoption dogs with a smattering of peanut butter on a plastic sheet, placed over top of some water based paints on canvas. The result are active tongue paintings. The carefully selected colours resulted in artwork fit for the walls of your home.

“After discovering this project, I went to work on making it a fun and enjoyable project for the LCHS dogs” said Olivia Bosey, an Animal Care Technician at the LCHS.

Through hours of work, Olivia put together a terrific video, highlighting the artistic prowess of our canines. You can see her work here:

The artwork and video are also available on the LCHS Facebook Page <https://www.facebook.com/lincolncountyhumanesociety> . The LCHS is working on auctioning of the amazing artwork to raise funds to assist the dogs in the shelter’s care.
