T A J • A R T
A For-Profit Social Enterprise
TAJ • ART is one of the first benefit corporations (B-corp) functioning as a For-Profit Social Enterprise art gallery wherein a portion of all proceeds will be donated to animal welfare groups around the world, creating a positive impact on society and the environment and to meet higher standards of accountability and transparency.
Trace Johansson's love for animals and her belief that they are kindred spirits and sentient beings of light and love, is what compelled her to make this gallery her vision and structure it as a benefit corporation.
“Because dogs and cats still live in the original state of connectedness with Being, they can help us regain it.”

"Founded in 2003, Soi Dog Foundation's mission is to improve the welfare of dogs and cats in Asia, resulting in better lives for both the animal and human communities, to end animal cruelty, and to ultimately create a society without homeless animals. Soi Dog Foundation is fighting the Asian dog meat trade and thanks to overwhelming support from people like you, the trade has been almost completely wiped out in Thailand. Our work with street animals consists of spaying and neutering to prevent unwanted puppies and kittens being born into short lives of suffering, along with the rescue, vaccination, medical treatment, sheltering, and adoption of those that cannot be returned to their territory. Soi Dog also campaigns for an improvement in animal welfare rights across Asia, and helps animals affected by natural disasters, such as the severe flooding in southern Thailand in 2017 and prior to that, the Bangkok floods of 2011 and the Asian tsunami of 2004."

"Founded in 1995, Wildlife Alliance has implemented cutting-edge conservation programs in Southeast Asia, Russia, South America, and the Western Pacific. Wildlife Alliance is the leader in direct protection of forests and wildlife in tropical Asia. Our mission is a comprehensive approach – Direct on the ground intervention by working with government rangers to ensure strict law enforcement and good governance. We build rangers’ professional capacity and provide full support for their livelihoods. This enables them to focus completely on their duties to take strong action, with no exception. In this way, we fight corruption, which is one of the main causes of underdeveloped countries failing to enforce wildlife laws."
