PET TAGS PERMANENT INSTALLATION FUNDRAISER

ABOUT THE PET TAG INSTALLATION PROJECT
C.A.R.E.’s New Pet Tag Project Adds Art & Shimmer to Adoption Center Entrance—And Helps Animals
At C.A.R.E.’s Adoption Center, an installation of silvery Pet Tags in the building’s foyer offers people a way to honor special friends, family and pets.
Community Animal Rescue Effort’s newly opened Adoption Center has added a dramatic art installation that doubles as a way of financially supporting the organization’s animal rescue work. The installation, created by C.A.R.E. volunteer Karey Uhler, consists of an array of engravable discs, or Pet Tags. The silvery two-inch tags are securely attached to hooks and mounted in a grid on a matte-black wall. Every time the Adoption Center doors open, air movement causes the array to move and catch the light.
Karey’s inspiration behind the piece was found during a tour she took at the San Francisco SPCA. While the inside was bright and cheery, “a detail on the outside of the building caught my eye,” Karey recalls. “Up high, a large wall of red pet tags was reflecting the light of the setting sun.”
When Karey began thinking of a similar wall for C.A.R.E., she used her San Francisco experience as a launching point. “Normally pet tags are a way for lost pets to safely find their way home,” Karey adds. “I love the significance of this wall for C.A.R.E.’s lobby because the pets inside our Adoption Center are seeking their forever homes. At the same time, the wall serves as a way for supporters to be recognized in our new space.”
“I like to think that the tags will offer a glimmer of hope and one day all pets will have tags that will lead them back to loving homes,” Karey says.
Engraved C.A.R.E. Pet Tags serve as a unique way to honor special people or animals. Businesses can use tags to show their support of animal rescue. And with the holidays drawing ever nearer, Pet Tags make the perfect gift for that hard-to-buy-for person.
A donation of $250 is all it takes for your inscribed Pet Tag to be placed on permanent display at C.A.R.E.’s Adoption Center. When the tag has been installed, you – or your designated honoree – will be notified.
Funds raised by the Pet Tag Project go toward care of the rescued cats and dogs under C.A.R.E.’s charge.
