AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – COVID-19 has forced a lot of people to cancel fundraising events.
One animal rescue is hoping its event this weekend helps make up for the difference.
Every Dog Matters is holding a big garage sale.
There is everything for sale from dishes, holiday decor, toys and furniture.
All of the items were donated, and all the money raised goes straight to the agency.
“We’re just a small rescue. There are only about 10 volunteers, and to have so many people to come out and donate all this stuff, just to be able to survive, means the world,” said event organizer Amanda Hamilton.
The event is being held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Aug. 7 through Sunday, Aug. 9 at 6385 Fairview Rd. in Austintown.
Every Dog Matters is a nonprofit organization in the Youngstown area. Its mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome unwanted dogs.
