This print is part of a larger solo exhibition titled, "The (Unwanted) Pooch Puzzle," that is currently on exhibition at the SPCA in Wake County, North Carolina. The project was designed to help support efforts underway to raise funds and awareness of the need to support adoption efforts to rescue domestic pets from euthanasia. It is estimated that every 9 seconds, an unwanted domestic pet is put down in the U.S., based on studies from the National Council on Pet Population which estimates that 3.7 million are put down each year in animal shelters across the country.
