One of the Foundation's primary missions is to support artists who feature animals in their work. Often, the Foundation received portfolios from artists. This series contains those portfolios that are not linked to grants or Triangle Animal Awareness. In addition, this series contains exhibit catalogs and a collection of slides of prominent works that feature animals. In addition to visual arts, the Foundation also supported musicians, scholars, and playwrights that feature animals, and portfolios from these individuals are also included in this series.

As a non-profit organization, the Foundation also seeks grants to fund its many activities.
