DOGS TO THE RESCUE > What it is: Stylish key rings, necklaces and note cards from artist Martha Cares, who exhibited the colorful dogs in a much larger form at 2012 ArtPrize. Her 2012 entry, “My Rescue,” and this year’s entry, featuring cats, were located in front of Gerald R. Ford Museum. The artist from Sawyer, Mich., wants her work to raise awareness of the millions of shelter animals in search of “forever” homes. But wait, there’s more: She sells large dog sculptures that are 4 feet high and weigh 200 pounds. Made of steel, they come with stands, are durable enough to be outdoors and can be linked together with other dogs. She also sells 8-inch versions that can be placed in the home and will consider special requests. Fetch it: Jewelry-quality key rings and necklaces are $20; note cards are $12 for an eight-count box. Eight-inch dogs are $150, 2-foot dogs are $1,280 and large dogs are $2,800. For more information, go to myrescuedogs.org.
