HHS Receives Two New Paintings from Williamsburg Artist

Heritage Humane Society is attempting to find homes for cats and kittens with an adoption special this fall. Ironically, two new cats found a home at the shelter on Tuesday courtesy of local Williamsburg artist Carolee Vitaletti, who presented Heritage Humane Society with two new pieces of cat artwork to adorn the walls and welcome visitors.

Eighteen prints of Vitaletti's animal artwork have been hanging throughout Heritage Humane Society since last year. The addition of the two latest prints, which depict a kitten and a young adult cat, brings the total number of paintings in the shelter to 20. The prints, which are available in a variety of sizes, can be ordered through forms available at the shelter. Mention Heritage Humane Society during your purchase to have a percentage of each sale benefit our animals.

Vitaletti's presentation of the new prints coincides with Heritage Humane Society's current adoption special, which features 50 percent off adoption fees for cats older than 9 months and two-for-one adoption fees for kittens younger than 9 months.

"Carolee Vitaletti's artwork has brightened our shelter, and we are thrilled to add two more wonderful pieces of art," said Heritage Humane Society Executive Director Kimberly Laska. "The new paintings are positioned strategically within the shelter to be plainly visible to the guests who walk through the front door or to those patrons walking down our cat hallway."

Heritage Humane Society, which is at near-capacity for cats, encourages the public to visit the shelter to view Vitaletti's artwork in person and perhaps find a new furry friend to join the family.
