Steel Dog Project

Steel Dogs Helping Real Dogs….and Cats:

POP 11 2FETCH a Cure’s steel dog sculptures were created as the signature piece of our pet cancer awareness campaign and annual fundraiser, Pets on Parade Benefit & Auction, held every June. The sculptures are sponsored each year by businesses, veterinary practices and individuals. In partnership with area artists , these sculptures are transformed into community works of art and serve to raise awareness of pet cancer. Every year, a few of the dogs are also available at the benefit and auction, usually designed by known Richmond artists. Mini pups (and cats) are also at the Pets on Parade event in the popular “Pick of the Litter” auction!

Each year, the new litter of dogs debuts in early spring and is displayed around town leading up to The Pets on Parade Benefit & Auction in June. Through FETCH a Cure’s Steel Dog Project, #steeldogshelpingrealdogs, there are currently 200+ steel dogs out in our community!

When you see these sculptures, it is FETCH’s hope that you: think about pet cancer, check your pet for early warning signs of cancer, and if your pet has cancer, you are filled with hope, knowing FETCH a Cure is here to help.
 
 

 

About the Dogs Sculptures:

One-of-a-kind sculptures are created every year, every one is different! The dogs are created by Bruce Mickelson, an extremely gifted metal crafter. He designed the FETCH dog to represent all dogs and to stand proudly to raise awareness for pet cancer. The steel dogs  are 42 inches tall and 40 inches from nose to tail made of everlasting steel. The sculpture represents the pet community with pride and strength.
