Arctic Blast Leaves Dogs Out in the Cold: WebThriftStore Launches "Coats for Canines" Drive

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - January 09, 2014) -  WebThriftStore, an online charity fundraising platform, today announced its Coats for Canines drive.

With record-breaking cold hitting the U. S. this week, WebThriftStore wants to help keep its furry friends warm! WebThriftStore is encouraging supporters to donate dog coats and sweaters to any of its dog-related charities, which include the ASPCA, the Bark & Meow Foundation, Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network, Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation, Internet Miniature Pinscher Service, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), RedRover, and Spay-Neuter Assistance Program.

All doggie duds are tax-deductible, just like everything donated to WebThriftStore.

"We're all concerned about the safety and well being of our pets in this record-breaking cold," said Doug Krugman, CEO of WebThriftStore. "WebThriftStore's Coats for Canines drive is a great way to encourage animal lovers to keep a dog warm and safe, and to support a good cause at the same time."

WebThriftStore turns people's excess stuff into cash for charities, tax deductions for donors, and bargains for buyers. Any nonprofit can open a "virtual" thrift store without holding inventory, and with no financial risk. When a supporter lists a donation, it becomes available in the WebThriftStore marketplace, and its sale proceeds benefit the selected nonprofit.
