The Shelter Shop supports animals in need

ASHLAND, WI– Just off Main Street in downtown Ashland, there’s a shop that supports a good cause.

All the proceeds from The Shelter Shop go to support the Chequamegon Humane Association.

People donate their gently used items, which the store then cleans up and sells.

It raises around $6,000 a month to care for homeless pets in need.

It’s been open for about a year and makes a big difference for the shelter.

“With the new shelter, it’s much bigger, it has much more animals, it takes more money to run, so we’re helping to keep them out of debt,” said volunteer Sue DePerry.

The Chequamegon Humane Association serves both Ashland and Bayfield Counties and the Bad River and Red Cliff Reservations.

It doesn’t get any government funding and relies on donations.

The Shelter Shop is open six days a week, Monday through Saturday. It’s located on 4th Avenue West in Ashland.
