Who We Are
Wags to Riches is Cincinnati, Ohio’s premier nonprofit fine furniture, accessory, and jewelry consignment shop. Our boutique has an ever-changing inventory of quality furniture, home accessories, handbags, antiques, artwork, and fine jewelry. The inventory is carefully selected. You will always find one-of-a-kind pieces at our store, many pieces from top manufacturers at a fraction of the original retail cost.
Best of all – you can shop at Wags to Riches, or donate or consign items you no longer need, with the added satisfaction of knowing that you are benefiting a very worthy cause. All net proceeds from the store support United Coalition for Animals (UCAN), a non-profit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization. UCAN’s mission is to provide high-quality, low-cost spay/neuter services to decrease the number of dogs and cats unnecessarily put to death in Greater Cincinnati shelters every year. Please visit ucancincinnati.org for more information about this wonderful organization.
Wags to Riches could not operate without its crew of dedicated volunteers. Over 40 volunteers provide excellent customer service and serve as our sales staff, pricers, decorators, and perform other important duties to keep the store running efficiently. They find it a very rewarding way to save the lives of homeless cats and dogs in our community without the emotional trauma of helping in a shelter.
Volunteers who want to serve customers are typically asked to work a minimum of two 4-hour shifts per month. Although no previous sales experience is necessary, it is important that volunteers feel comfortable assisting customers. An individual training session is provided by the Volunteer Trainer. We also have several other volunteer opportunities that do not require specific time commitments, such as photographing merchandise, updating Wags to Riches’s Facebook page, creating and distributing fliers for events, etc.
“I love working with people and support UCAN’s mission, so helping at Wags to Riches gave me the opportunity to work with many different people while helping save the lives of animals at the same time. I find it very rewarding and fun to work in an environment so different from my nursing career.”
