The Wisconsin Humane Society has come up with a very popular initiative to encourage people to donate - offering hilarious portraits of pets in return for donations. Scroll on for our favorites.

Giving to charity is a noble thing.

Selflessly offering what you have for those more in need has an undeniably positive impact.

And one popular style of charity?

One that looks after animals in need. Helping those who can't help themselves is the essence of charity, after all.

But sometimes, people need an extra push.

Charities can often offer incentives to encourage donations and help from the general public.

And the latest to go viral is particularly ingenious.

For a $15 donation, people can receive a custom portrait of one of their pets.

There is one slight catch though.

These portraits are bad. But, like, so bad they're good.

So this adorable pooch ...
