Cincy Chic’s Pet Fashion Show, taking place on September 23 from 6-9pm is right around the corner! All the proceeds for the event will be benefiting Recycled Doggies, who is our feature of the day today on the blog!! (each day leading up to the Pet Fashion show, I will be featuring a different business taking place in this event)
Recycled Doggies is an all-foster rescue that “recycles” unwanted shelter dogs into desirable pets. I picked Recycled Doggies as the recipient of this year’s fashion show proceeds not only because it’s a great organization, but also because their facility recently endured a damaging and deadly fire. The organization needs fundraising now more than ever.
You can read more about the fire, the organization and the founder Shannon DeBra, in this article we wrote in June: Strength Fanned by Flames. After a house fire took her home and the animals she was fostering, Cincy Chic is extremely excited to help her and Recycled Doggies at the upcoming Pet Fashion Show. If you haven’t heard of Recycled Doggies before, here’s what you need to know:
Recycled Doggies is an all-volunteer, non-profit501 (c)(3) tax-exempt organization. All of their dogs come from local shelters where they had little to no chance of being adopted and once they’re with us they live in our foster homes until adopted. This allows Recycled Doggie volunteers get to know their dogs and help make the perfect adoption matches.
Owner of Recycled Doggies, Shannon DeBra, says, “We are honored to have been selected as a beneficiary of Cincy Chic’s Pet Fashion Show, not only due to the fundraiser aspect of the event, but it also raises awareness of our organization and the work done by local animal rescue organizations, especially ours!”
If interested in adopting a dog from Recycled Doggies please visit their website, www.recycleddoggies.org, where you can find an adoption application and dates of their dog adoptions. You can also make a donation to the Recycled Doggies organization at the bottom of this page!
