Art Fur Animals benefits Friends of the Cleveland Kennel’s efforts to care for and re-home neglected, abused and stray animals. This past Friday’s 8th annual event, which took place at the 78th Street Galleries SmART Space, was its most successful yet, raising an estimated $25,000 between admission, the silent auction of art and other donated prizes, and a live auction. It more than doubled what it previously made in its live auction, which features ceramic dogs designed by area artists. In previous years, $600 was the top bid. This year, Linda Radak’s “Steam Pug” was the top-dollar item, going for $1,400, while Sean Kelly’s “Twenty-7” went for $1,100.
