Shop to help prevent euthanization at Ohio shelters

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - An Ohio consignment shop for fine furniture, home decor, accessories and other items is working to benefit cats and dogs that face euthanization due to overcrowded shelters and raise awareness around the importance of sterilizing pets.

Wags to Riches donates all net proceeds to the mission of United Coalition for Animals (UCAN) to provide professional, low-cost spay and neuter services to end the unnecessary deaths of homeless cats and dogs in shelters in the Greater Cincinnati area including, surrounding counties in Southwestern Ohio, Northern Kentucky and Southern Indiana.

According to UCAN, cats and dogs are abandoned every day and forced to live a rough life on the street or find themselves in a shelter that resorts to euthanasia practices if they are not adopted quickly.

Wags to Riches stated that they offer multiple ways to contribute through the company including shopping, consigning and donating merchandise to their store in Blue Ash, Ohio.

The company stated 100% of the sales proceeds that come from donated merchandise directly supports UCAN's clinic.

Plus, since UCAN is a 01(c)(3) charitable organization, donations and consignments are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
