Paint me like one of your French Bulldogs.

For one day only, RSPCA Victoria are doing pet portraits to raise money for The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Victoria). For just $20 a pop, you can get a delightfully ruff (sorry, I had to) artwork of your furry, feathered or scaly friends.

All you need to do is make your donation here and then head over to the RSPCA Victoria Facebook page and post a picture of your pet/s along with confirmation of your donation.

The artists will then begin “the highly complex and creative process of drawing your pet poorly”. It may take up to 72 hours for you to receive your portrait, but hey, you can’t rush art.

RSPCA have also been posting all the pet portraits on Facebook, and they’re actually not poorly drawn at all. But hey, even if it does end up looking a bit shit, a) you were warned and b) at least you’re supporting a good cause.

Submissions for RSPCA Victoria’s Poorly Drawn Pet Portraits close at 9pm tonight. 

Never miss a story. Sign up to Beat’s newsletter and you’ll be served fresh music, arts, food and culture stories three times a week.
