Grace Han, founder of Towards a Compassionate Nation (TACN), a volunteer-run charity in China, rescued 14 cats and transferred them to Beijing to receive veterinary care and a better chance to be adopted. Some of them were saved from being sold and slaughtered for their meat, skin and fur, while others were previously strays, abandoned due to illness, and were likely ending up being trapped by cat meat traders. Grace and her friend Susana took them to Beijing for a better chance at life.
In aid of TACN, The Art of Compassion Project, an international art collective supporting vegan causes, hosted an online cat art poster auction to feature 50 artworks by artists hailing from the different corners of the globe. The cat art Giclée prints are currently up for bidding starting from £25.00 GBP. The auction runs from 6-13 May 2019. Proceeds from the project will go directly to TACN towards covering the cost for veterinary care, treatment, surgery, boarding, foster care and rehoming of these cats.
