April Howland Fine Artist-Featured Pet Expert

Introducing our incredibly gifted and talented pet expert!Fine Artist; April Howland



A native of Sedona AZ, April Howland can't help but be inspired by the many animals she has connected with.
Having covered corners of the globe as remote as the African safari to the Alaskan tundra to your very own backyard, April makes excellent use of an extensive color palette to capture the spirit of her animal subjects. Ultimately she strives to evoke a connection with her collectors, her art, and the wildlife she encounters.



April began her studio as a commissioned artist painting domestic animals and has since expanded to many creatures and subjects although animals are her passion.


She has been featured by:

Adopt a Senior Dog Month-2013

November is adopt a senior dog month.

Why Adopt an old dog?

Prospective families looking to adopt a new dog or puppy typically focus on one thing and that one thing is usually about adopting puppies! They want one that “can grow with the family” or “is cute and cuddly”. Understandable in some situations, but what about the older generation, or the young couple looking to add to their young family? Is it really a good idea for an elderly person to adopt a young puppy that may live for 17 years? What happens if they pass away and the pet is only 6 or 7 years old? I know what happens; often that pet ends up at the pound. It’s an awful lot of work raising a new puppy. If you’re retired and set on adopting a new puppy rather than an older dog, make sure your retirement is not going to get in the way of providing all the needs a new puppy comes along with.
