Artwork Guidelines

We're thrilled that the animals of Catskill Animal Sanctuary have inspired your artwork! In keeping with our anti-animal exploitation philosophy, we kindly request that you include some information about Catskill Animal Sanctuary and the animals depicted in your art wherever it appears (in galleries, online, your portfolio, etc.) and that this same information accompany any piece you sell.

It would be wonderful if you're able to donate a portion of the proceeds to Catskill Animal Sanctuary, or donate a piece to one of our auctions, but we understand many artists can't afford to do so. By including links to our website or Facebook page, and by letting your fans know how to support a cause you love, everyone benefits. If you would like additional information on any of the animals who have inspired you, or would like to donate a piece to one of our auctions, please email our Outreach Manager Michelle Alvarez.

Professional Photographers

If you are interested in coming to Catskill Animal Sanctuary to photograph the animals, please contact us to schedule a visit. Please understand that we may be unable to accommodate your request due to timing or staff availability. Photographers who have never shot at the Sanctuary before must be accompanied by a staff member on their first visit. We require that all photos taken be shared for the Sanctuary's use (credit will be given as appropriate to the medium).
