Tales of Love is an annual project of the Purr’n Pooch Foundation for Animals and Small Factory in support of the Foundation’s educational initiatives to promote the humane treatment and adoption of animals. Children, ages 5 to 10 from across Monmouth County, NJ are invited to submit their original pet/animal stories or drawings to the Tales of Love contest. 2011 winners included Jacey Schnappauf (age 8) of Oceanport, Katarina Barc (age 9) of Colts Neck, Camryn Osofsky (age 7) of Rumson, Jake Connoly (age 9) of Lincroft, Dylan Palmeri (age 7) of Rumson, AJ Sollecito (age 7) of Little Silver, and Sabrina Sciarappa (age 7) of Eatontown. The winners worked collaboratively to create the Tales of Love cartoon over the course of several production workshops at Small Factory’s studio in Fair Haven, NJ.
