RSF resident Lynn Moon’s Art for Barks is a unique nonprofit that creates an online community to showcase animal artists and writers, and offers services to assist pet parents while supporting local animal charities.
The organization’s first big charity fundraiser was held Sept. 21 at the San Diego Polo Fields. The event featured polo matches, an animal fine art show, an Arabian horse demonstration, a wine tasting and an after-party social hour.
Fashion Week San Diego put on a fashion show at the event with service dogs walking alongside the models.
Leading up to the event people were able to vote through social media in a Hero Service Dog contest and the winning award was given at the Sept. 21 party.
