where celebs create animal-themed artwork to help save lives!

What's Draw for Paws all about exactly?

Rock Stars, Celebs & Motley Zoo go hand-in-hand!

You may have heard of Motley Zoo for pioneering backstage meet and greets with artists and the animals we’ve named after them! We play on the music theme to make animal welfare fun and empowering, rather than depressing and hopeless. Many awesome artists have helped represent our cause through these meetings and our message that they share with their fans (see some by clicking here.)

What we've come up with is a super cool, fun way to help us continue to give animals a second chance at life: a line of custom t-shirts designed by celebs, which will help us raise these crucial funds.  Awesome, right!?

Here’s what we’re thinking:

  1. You provide a signed drawing of your pet
    or an animal of your choosing

  2. We’ll print your drawing on a shirt!

  3. These shirts will be sold to raise funds which will
    help Motley Zoo save animals!

Sound like something you're down with doing?!  Rock on!

Keep on reading for the details / guide - it's pretty easy, and won't take up much of your hectic schedules whatsoever!  The rescues (and all of the Motley Zoo Crew) thank you so much for your consideration!


Motley Zoo has become synonymous with the

backstage meet & greets, where we bring adoptable animals to meet celebs, rock stars and musicians!  The celebs love having sweet fur-babies to love on, while getting ready to go on stage!  Rob Zombie is shown here with adoptable roadie, Corey Taylor, at Pain In The Grass 2019.

Motley Zoo's Draw for Paws Guide:

Here’s how to make sure your effort pays off!

1.     You do NOT have to have art talent to participate!!!

2.     You can use any kind of medium: traditional or computer-generated.

3.     Please video a portion of the time and effort it takes you to create the piece. Not only will this provide good marketing ops to share on social for us both, but it will authenticate the drawing.

4.     Videos can be sent to info@motleyzoo.org (use a link share, large file transfer such as Hightail or Dropbox which offer free options, or worst case, a thumb drive).


Videos can be posted publicly (be sure to tag us!) before we actually have the art, but that does put a little more pressure on you to complete it. However, it also creates excitement and anticipation among your fans too…


Just don’t do the whole reveal publicly before we can launch the shirt design on our store!!

Traditional art parameters:

  • An 8.5”x11” piece of standard paper is fine to use, preferably unlined- but feel free to go bigger if you’d like!

  • Create how ever you feel most comfortable! Pencil, pen, marker, chalk, paint, etc- anything goes

  • Any animal will do, we only suggest a pet if you have one.

  • Send your artwork securely. Utilize a piece of cardboard inside a 9x12 envelope and mark “Do Not Bend” on the outside or roll your drawing up in a tube & mail to:

Motley Zoo

16725 Cleveland Street

Redmond, Washington 98052

  • Please provide an e-mail address and phone number where you / a manager can be reached if we have questions - and to schedule the launch of your design!

Digital art parameters:

  • Make sure the drawing is at high resolution of at least 300dpi and 12”x14” or so

  • PNG files are best, but we can convert other file types (.jpg, .psd, .pdf, etc.)

  • RGB is best vs CMYK (.png file is automatically RGB)

  • Any animal will do, we only suggest a pet if you have one.

  • Send your artwork via Hightail, Dropbox, or other large file transfer to info@motleyzoo.org - or send a thumb drive to the above address.

  • Please provide an e-mail address and phone number where you / a manager can be reached if we have questions - and to schedule the launch of your design!

** This is an ongoing project so you can send artwork any time **

Shirts will be put online for pre-order as soon as they come in. As they are created on demand, customers can expect delivery approximately 10 days after they order.

This doesn’t have to take more than a few minutes of your valuable time, but the impact it will make on rescue animals' lives will be ENORMOUS!

Thank you!  

You Rock!!
