A feline adds the finishing touches to a canvas to be sold at "Pet Palette," a fundraiser Thursday for the Dorothy O'Connor Pet Adoption Center. Art for sale at the event, which also includes wine tasting, is all painted by shelter animals.

Nowhere else can you whet your palate and snag a pet palette at the same time.

On Thursday, the Dorothy O'Connor Pet Adoption Center will host "Pet Palette," a wine reception and art reception with a twist.

The art on display - and for sale - is painted by the shelter animals.

The event will be from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Marsha Shanklin Education Building next to the shelter, 135 Progress Drive.

Tickets are $35 and include a complimentary glass of wine from Braman Winery and hors d'oeuvres from Sky Restaurant.

"All My Friends are Flakes: Christmas Calories V," created by Dee Lynn Braman and friends will also be available for sale.

Helton Art from San Antonio will be on hand to schedule a portrait of your pet.

Entertainment will be provided by harpist Scott DeVos.
