Los Angeles-based artist and animator Lili Chin's personal project "Dogs of the World" features canines grouped by their areas of origin. Chin began the series in 2008 as a way to fund a local dog rescue called Boston Buddies.
Since the project's inception, its scale has expanded greatly, and its existence has proved beneficial to a number of pet rescue organizations. As Chin says,
"In the past five years, Doggie Drawings has evolved into a full-time (one-person) pet portrait and illustration business. So far, I have drawn over 800 unique pet portraits and donated a total of $13,242 to many dog rescue groups."
