Members of the Muncie Artists Guild donated their time and talents to paint a wall mural in the entrance of the administration building of ARF (Animal Rescue Fund), 1209 W. Riggin Road, Muncie, IN.
Susie Burns, Debra Brown and Jean McCauley painted a rural scene entitled “A Promise of Love,” the title of a book co-authored by ARF Founder Terri Panszi and John Carlson, former Muncie Star reporter. The mural depicts animals who have been or currently are living at ARF, including a cat, dog, a lamb and a pig. It also features a large tree of life.
The mural was painted for the ARF Homecoming Celebration Oct. 29, which was a rededication of the ARF facility.
Founded in 1998 by animal activist Terri Panszi, The Animal Rescue Fund (ARF), Muncie, is a private non-profit, no kill-shelter that provides housing, medical care and rehoming to abused, neglected and unwanted animals.
