There is power in numbers. United in our efforts as artists helping animals, we can reduce the number of adoptable animals unnecessarily euthanized each year. We are about coming together to save the lives of millions of animals in need and educating the wider community. We help strengthen relationships between member artists and animal welfare organizations. We offer financial support. We support our artist members though grants, stock photography work and other programs that help you to provide more services, pro-bono, to help animal rescue efforts.

HeARTs Speak’s Member Lounge is your online community.

HeARTs Speak’s online resources include:

  • Thriving members’ online community
  • Guides for how to connect with shelters and rescues and how to “get the word out” on adoptable animals
  • Various Letter, Contract and Release Templates for download
