For our Christmas Special this year we’re promoting responsible pet ownership and the #adoptdontshop motto with our ‘A pet is for life’ theme. We’ll be meeting, drawing and learning about a wide variety of rescue animals, all of which are top of the rehoming list in the UK. During the evening we’ll be sketching poor old Bearded Dragons, a common reptile often intensively bred by irresponsible breeders along with Tortoises, Musk Turtles, Leopard Geckos and Corn Snakes – all reptiles that are often given up due to the expensive energy bills needed to heat their tanks. We'll be drawing Ferrets, Rabbits, Guinea Pigs and Skinny Pigs, small animals that are often mistreated due to lack of knowledge about the species. Come join us to celebrate happy pets for life and learn about the best places to rehome animals from in the local area, with 10% of each ticket donated to the South Essex Wildlife Hospital – a wonderful and hardworking sanctuary for both wild and domestic animals.
