Join us for the 18th Annual Picasso Pets, one of Birmingham's liveliest events!
Participate in this year's Pop Art theme by wearing your most colorful cocktail attire!
Picasso Pets was created to showcase not only our love for animals, but to celebrate their amazing ability to help people have a brighter day, to heal and to realize their potential.
All funds raised enable Hand in Paw to carry out our mission to improve human health and well-being.
The 18th annual Picasso Pets will take place on Saturday, August 11 from 6-10pm at The Harbert Center. Guests can mingle with our star therapy animals, peruse a top-notch silent auction, sip craft beer, wine, and specialty cocktails, enjoy a delicious seated dinner, and participate in a incredible live auction.
The night's main event is the debut of paintings created by pets belonging to prominent members of our community (with a little help from well-known local artists!)
