Description

Paws and Pin-Backs, Busy Beaver's 2018 Button-O-Matic Artist Series will benefit our pawsome friends over at Chicago's One Tail at a Time. This year's series features the purrfect pins from 10 talented artists that you'll go mutts over!

Since pinback buttons were patented in 1896, people have used them to express their opinions and rally support. Buttons start conversations, advocate for causes and promote projects. Wearable expressions are a simple but powerful way for anyone to convey their beliefs.

Every year, One Tail at a Time starts the conversation about pet adoption. In 2017 the no-kill, all breed dog rescue saved 586 dogs and 26 neonate kittens from euthanasia, served 450 pets at vaccine clinics, and kept 875 pets out of the shelter with their Shelter Diversion Program.

It's time to join the conversation!

Bring your friends to Busy Beaver November 15th to learn more about adoption with OTAT's Adoption Station (THAT'S RIGHT, A PUPPY PARTY!), enjoy refreshments from Off Color Brewing, and to collect all the pet-tastic buttons in this series!
