A portion of Richard Boyd Art Galley’s net income from the sale of art works featured in the exhibit will be donated to the MSSPA Buy-A-Bale campaign to help feed horses at River Road farm in Windham, Maine. The Society receives no local, state, or federal funding. MSSPA relies on funding received from individuals, businesses, bequests, grants, and fundraising activities to offer their services free of charge.

MSSPA promotes the humane treatment, training, and use of animals through education and hands-on experience.
