Join Memphis Pets Alive! and Seize the Clay for a painting party! Just in time for Christmas, come make your own custom dog or cat bowls to keep for your own furry friend’s stocking or gift to a loved one.

The plain dog bowls are $35 apiece, plain car bowls are $30 apiece, dog bowls with feet are $45 apiece, and cat bowls with feet are $40 apiece.

You can also paint two dishes and receive a $10 discount off of the total price, thus making your Christmas shopping even easier!

Choose from more than 100 paint colors to paint your pottery piece(s). Take advantage of Seize the Clay’s huge selection of stamps, stencils, sponges, paper punches, and more ways to perfect your personal artistic creation!

Once you are finished painting, simply leave your piece with us, and we will do the rest. Pottery will be ready in 3-5 days and is food safe and dishwasher safe once it is fired.

Thank you Seize the Clay for partnering with us for this fun event!

You may order your tickets here. We look forward to seeing y’all on December 4th!

Upcoming: The Champions

We only have a little more than 4 days to sell 66 more tickets so this event can happen!

You can reserve your tickets here. Your credit card will not be billed until we meet our quota.


The Champions is an inspirational story about the pit bulls rescued from the brutal fighting ring of former Atlanta Falcon’s star quarterback Michael Vick, and the organizations who risked everything to save them, despite pressure from PETA and The Humane Society to euthanize the dogs. It is a story of second-chances, redemption and hope. This uplifting documentary takes us on a journey about much more than just dogs—about prejudice, being misunderstood, the power of resilience, and the significance of the relationship we as humans have with animals. Featuring the lifesaving work of Best Friends Animal Society.
