a bit about Change Unleashed!

Twin Cities Caricatures has made giving back to organizations and communities a priority. The Caricatures for a Cause program was developed in the fall of 2018. We are proud to expand it by having an ongoing presence at Downtown Dogs and Dog's Day Out and lending a paw to their Change Unleashed! initiative.

Each quarter these two sister businesses partner with a different, nonprofit animal organization to raise awareness and funds for their work in our community. Downtown Dogs and Dog’s Day Out’s first quarter 2024 Change Unleashed! partner is The Street Dog Coalition.

“Caring for lives at both ends of the leash” is Street Dog Coalition’s motto. Their mission: To provide free veterinary care to pets of people experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness. Everything The Street Dog Coalition does is “done with love and kindness, without judgment or conditions.” Volunteers host pop-up street clinics every 4-6 weeks to provide dogs and cats physical exams, vaccinations, preventative care, spay/neuter vouchers, and more. Since they started in Minneapolis in 2019, Street Dog Coalition has helped more than 1000 pets. By ordering from Caricatures for a Cause you will be supporting Street Dog Coalition’s commitment “to protecting the human-animal bond by caring for the pet and their person.”​

Ruff Sketches are an even sillier way to capture you or your pet. These sketches are done in less than half the time of our traditional drawings and are meant to be as silly as possible!
