ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Help animals in need of new homes while experiencing art! The St. Louis University Museum of Art is hosting the sixth Junior Rescuer Kid's Day, which includes works of art created by artists, as well as rescued companion animals. Each artist depicts a Stray Rescue dog or cat in their medium of choice, ranging from photography to painting to sculpture

You can purchase artwork via an online auction. All proceeds from the event go directly to Stray Rescue of St. Louis and will help abused, neglected, and abandoned dogs and cats. You can even bring your pets so they can join in the fun, too, creating paintings with their paws, tails and noses!

Junior Rescuers Day at SLU Museum of Art will be held July 9, 2016,  from 12 PM to 3 PM. Learn more about the event at
