W+K Loves Dogs

LostDogs 

 “Lost Dogs” Fundraiser Found at W+K, June 5th


In a world brimming with trouble, can street dogs actually be a ranking concern or cause? On June 5th, filmmaker Vanessa Schulz will be in the building to convince you of that fact. Join Schulz and a heavy hitting line-up of world animal advocates to preview a teaser of her latest film “Lost Dogs,” and to learn about the global stray dog crisis.

“Lost Dogs” profiles 8 dogs and the volunteers who struggled to rescue them. Five of these international adoptees will be on hand to tell their story in the way that only the eyes of a dog can. (Speaking of eyeballs, One Eyed Lily, belonging to former W+K copywriter Janet Champ, will be one of the five guest starring canines).

Our very own, Jim Riswold will contribute an evening highlight – two new works created for the event. With Riswold’s captivating hand at inappropriate appropriateness, he’ll offer BAD DOG bowls BLONDI HITLER and SOBAKA STALINA for sale with proceeds benefitting Lost Dogs.

Allison Lance of SPECIEES (Society to Prevent Exotic Contamination of Island Ecosystems & Endangered Species) and Dr. Byron Maas of Animal Balance will also speak on their efforts to increase sterilization and humane canine population management around the world.

Come meet grateful dogs, eat, drink, learn, question and drop a few dimes in the coffer on June 5th at 6pm. Fear not, this isn’t a ‘beat ‘em till they give’ event. Just friends exploring possibilities while having a heck of a good time.

    I met Vanessa near the beginning of this project and have been impressed by her determination and touched by stories from her time in Chile. This film will help people see the reality facing free-roaming dogs in communities around the world; greater awareness leads to compassion, care, and a willingness to embrace sustainable, humane methods for managing “street dog” populations.
