Creating a world where no
shelter animal goes unseen

HeARTs Speak is a nationally recognized 501c3 nonprofit organization that’s uniting art and advocacy to increase the visibility of shelter animals.

First impressions are our specialty and we’re dedicated to inspiring change for shelter pets across the globe through programs that leverage creativity and collaboration.


All HeARTs Speak programs are powered by the generous support of the Petco Foundation



Together, across 21 countries, our artist members are providing over 15,000 hours of creative service per month to animal welfare organizations — including 1/3 of shelters in the U.S. alone — impacting nearly 350,000 animals worldwide.

Each year, the combined force of our programs has the power to provide increased visibility for over half a million animals worldwide, through comprehensive educational opportunities and expansive collaboration between the art + animal welfare worlds

Since 2013, our Perfect Exposure Project workshops have empowered more than 300 U.S. animal welfare employees and volunteers to more effectively promote the animals in their care. In 2016 alone, the workshops had the potential to impact over 100,000 animals.
