Designing World Spay Day shirts for Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County was truly an honor. I developed the theme, sketches and designs for these shirts, and have a deep admiration for the people who wear them at the shelter. 

After participating in some Spay Day trapping and transporting, I realized what a huge collaboration this was. There are teams of people setting traps, transporting, feeding, cleaning and not to mention performing surgeries and monitoring recoveries. Then they all have to be returned to their colonies, where teams are feeding them and checking up on them regularly. 

So a sports-themed shirt naturally made sense. They sold for $35, which sponsored a surgery. I can't even imagine a more meaningful way to use my design than to prevent kittens and puppies being born into homelessness.
