New Yorkers will have an opportunity to see the world premiere of ‘Shelter Me: Hearts & Paws’ on April 7.
His various trips to the ACC, along with the dogs he met were featured in his week-long comic series called “Shelter Stories.” From doggy playgroups to pet adoptions, each comic had an end goal to encourage people to adopt from shelters.
