Hercule does not take paid commission requests for his pet portraits. All of the pet portraits he draws are free and just uploaded to his social media pages in return for a discretionary donation to one of his chosen charities: Turning Tides Ending Local Homelessness or StreetVet.
Links to the donation pages and charity websites are below and more information about the commission process can be found on Hercule’s Facebook page, ‘Pet Portraits BY Hercule’.
To date Hercule has raised over £300,000 and counting which has seen him receive a Points of Light Award from the Prime Minister, recognised by The Big Issue as one of their 100 Change Makers for 2021, and named as the ‘Creative Fundraiser of The Year’ at the 2022 Just Giving Awards .
The merchandise and print sales from this site are not direct charity sales, however a minimum of 10% of profits are donated to Turning Tides and StreetVet. On occasion, some items may be sold for the benefit of other charities and are clearly stated when done so.
