LAPA is one of this year’s charities, and they have come to the party with this beautiful art they have from a fundraiser they ran previously. All the artworks were inspired by real animals that LAPA helped.
Maria Soboleva – Fidgy, 2016
See, there is a man. And what is this man holding in his hand? It’s not a shovel. It’s not a broom! Good Lord, it’s a ball and we can play!
Fidgy (short for fidget) is an abandoned greyhound. She was found in Engels, Saratov region, Central Russia emaciated and very scared. Whatever had happened to her left her scarred for a long time. The volunteers spent months and months running after her trying to catch her!
This is a small town, without the equipment or medication to shoot sedative darts to catch animals. Finally, almost 6 months to the day the volunteers managed to catch her! Fidgy is gaining confidence, and weight day by day, which is just great to see. We think Fidgy will need a very active owner!!
