Art for Arf’s Sake is going PUNK! This year’s Auction will take place on Saturday, October 12, 2024 at our Humane Pennsylvania Lancaster Campus! This year’s auction is an opportunity for us to showcase all the new and exciting things happening in Lancaster including a new state-of-the-art cat adoption center, spacious and affordable dog and cat boarding kennels, and enhanced space for community programs and services. The vibes of our new Lancaster Campus will be heard throughout the community and beyond, which will also match this year’s theme!

Just like the music vibes of 1977 were full of diverse and unique sounds, Humane Pennsylvania embodies this same way of thinking by crafting unique programs and services to meet the needs of pets and caretakers throughout the community. This year’s Art Auction theme will pay homage to a great year of music – 1977 punk rock!

We are looking for talented artists to create original pieces of art tailored to this year’s theme for us to auction off at this year’s event – all to benefit the animals! Last year, we were able to raise over $76,000 – that was our highest net profit in over a decade!

If you are interested in donating an original piece to this year’s auction, please download, complete, and submit an Art for Arf’s Sake Artist Form. Please email completed digital forms to or mail completed physical forms to 1729 N. 11th St., Reading, PA 19604.
