In honor of paws and paint brushes, Dixie Belle Paint Company has teamed up with North Shore Animal League America. The idea is to blend creativity with warm, furry compassion to make a meaningful difference in the lives of animals in need. This collaboration isn’t just about paint or puppies; it’s about promoting awareness for animal rescue and supporting the world’s largest no-kill initiative.
