The question is not 'Can they reason?' nor 'Can they
talk?' but rather, 'Can they suffer?' -Jeremy
Arielle Morris lives
each day knowing the answer to that question, and its answer is yes. She has made it her goal to help as many suffering animals
as possible. Whether they are homeless, hungry, or in need of medical attention, every animal should have a chance. She hopes
that her clay creations and animal stories (based on true accounts) will inspire others to join her in helping these organizations
make life better for abandoned and unwanted animals.
Arielle lives with her husband, Adam, three cats: Takeo, Spirit and Tiger, and her dog Mia. She graduated
from the University of Delaware and started her artistic career as a graphic designer for a business journal. She became more
involved with animals when she volunteered at a local animal shelter. She also fostered a litter of kittens from that shelter
before realizing that she could do even more. Arielle established Clays for Strays at the age of 26 with the intent of helping
as many organizations as possible help the animals that she loves. She would like to thank her family and friends for all
their support, and most of all she would like to thank you for visiting her site in support of unwanted and abandoned animals.
Carina DeVera has been in charge of marketing the project since 2011. When she doesn't volunteer her skills to Clays for Strays, she
works with animal shelters to help them raise funds and improve their adoption rates.
