HeARTs Speak is a 501c3 international nonprofit organization that’s uniting art and advocacy to increase the visibility of shelter animals.

First impressions are our specialty and we’re dedicated to inspiring change for shelter pets across the globe through programs that leverage creativity and collaboration.


Artists Helping Animals
Artists Helping Animals is a community-building program, uniting more than 600 creative professionals across the globe who provide pro-bono services to save and support animals. Together, they’re contributing more than 15,000 hours of service monthly to animal welfare organizations.

Perfect Exposure Project
The Perfect Exposure Project is a program anchored in collaboration, innovation, and creativity. Through hands-on instruction, animal shelters are given photography equipment, training and inspiration to positively and effectively promote the animals in their care.

Since its inception in 2014, more than 250 animal welfare staff and volunteers have learned skills that have the potential to impact more than 100,000 animals each year. By the end of 2016, we had delivered this program to over 15 communities in the United States.

Images With HeART
Images with HeART is stock photography for good, powered by the artists of HeARTs Speak! The program is a fresh spin on image licensing, merging the promotion of pet adoption with a sustainable and ethical platform for artists to license their work.

HeARTs Speak EDU
EDU serves as an online library for content such as downloadable guides, tools and templates, video tutorials and webinars to make photography, social media, adoption promotion, and all-things-marketing available to anyone working or volunteering in animal welfare, no matter the skill set or background.

Here you can create the content that will be used within the module.
