The Silent Auction continues….

“Pure Joy” will be displayed at Chelmsford Animal Hospital later this week through the end of June.
You can come by to see it anytime they are open, or at their Open House on June 27.

This is the oil painting version of the acrylic dog park painting Leslie did for the dog park mural benefit!!
The painting is a 36X48X1.5 oil on canvas. $1200 is the advertised retail price, but the silent auction will start at $200.
Leslie will donate any amount over $200 to benefit the upcoming dog park on Richardson Road in Chelmsford!

Proceeds will benefit the Chelmsford Dog Association & The Chelmsford Dog Park at 54 Richardson Rd.

Please share and promote the dog park!!

A huge thank you to Chelmsford Animal Hospital & Markus & Leslie Lewis for giving us this great opportunity!
