We recently invited animal lovers of all ages to channel their inner artists by sending us shelter, foster, and adoption stories in the form of written or illustrated MUTTS comic strips.

We’ve loved seeing your submissions, and are so appreciative of the time taken to create and submit your heartfelt stories. Last month, we posted a small sampling of the artwork we’d received so far. Below is another selection of artwork submissions that have inspired us. We hope they’ll inspire you, as well!

Want to join the fun? We’re accepting submissions through August 15. Select drawings will be shared on our blog and social media, and some may even be re-drawn by Patrick for publication in newspapers worldwide!

If you’d like to draw your own cartoon, templates are available here, along with other helpful info. Please send questions or submissions to blog@mutts.com.
