Shelter Kitten Inspires Local Artist

Great partnerships are often inspired by a shared passion and for local artist, Myke Irving, and Friends of Norfolk Animal Care Center (NACC) that passion is animals. Irving approached Friends with the idea of doing a benefit painting for Norfolk’s largest animal shelter.  The finished work captures a tender moment between a dog and cat.  To learn more about the inspiration and how you can order copies to benefit NACC, click here.
