COLORING FOR A CAUSE
Our Coloring for a Cause coloring book was introduced in July 2020. The coloring book contains 20 different dog breeds and each has an accompanying “accessory” for you to color in as well! The simplified black and white lines allow for maximum creativity as you color! Create your own mandala pattern, stripes, spots, rainbows, or anything else you can dream up!
We have also included some facts about each dog breed featured! The only thing better than a coloring book is one that also teaches you a little something too. The information we have included may inspire how you color each page as well!
You also have the option to customize the back cover of your coloring book! We can create a black and white line drawing of you, your significant other, your child, your pet, almost anything! We can draw one face per coloring book. Just upload a photo, or a few, with your order!

Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue - August 2020 Partner
Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue was founded in 2009 and is a 501(c) non-profit. This rescue is 100% volunteer based and is working to change the perception of pit bull type dogs. Their mission is to find solid homes for the dogs in their program and require obedience training to help strengthen the bond between dog and owner. This non-profit operates solely on volunteers, foster homes and donations. They have approximately 100 volunteers in the organization and 20-30 foster homes on a full-time or temporary basis. Many of the dogs entering their program have come from Texas where they have far fewer resources than in Minnesota. Many of these dogs come with worms, intestinal parasites, and other varying medical conditions which can require veterinary care such as surgeries, limb amputations, blood transfusions, and medications. Since adoption fees do not cover all of their expenses, the rescue relies heavily on support from the public. To learn more about Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue, click here.
