Iconic Obama poster artist teams with Adopt-a-Pet.com

By jim Published: March 16, 2009

Adopt-a-Pet.com, North America’s largest non-profit pet adoption website, and Artist Shepard Fairey announced the sale of a limited edition run of 400 signed and numbered ADOPT silk-screen prints. Shepard Fairey, the artist whose iconic Obama print was recently declared a national treasure when inducted into the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, created the ADOPT image to support Adopt-a-Pet.com’s efforts to get adoptable animals out of shelters and into homes.

According to Adopt-a-pet.com’s Dr. Pia Salk, who first approached Fairey with the idea for the ADOPT image, “Shepard really gets it! He shares our belief that this country’s four-legged shelter residents deserve hope and progress too. And with five to seven million adoptable animals killed in the U.S. each year, it’s long overdue!”
