Animal Rescue http://redriverradio.org en Shreveport thrift shop proceeds benefit animal welfare http://redriverradio.org/post/shreveport-thrift-shop-proceeds-benefit-animal-welfare <p>A new thrift shop in Shreveport has a mission that extends beyond the reuse of vintage clothing and jewelry. The owner of Olive Street Thrift, Heather Scarano, gives away most of her business proceeds&nbsp;to benefit&nbsp;local animal welfare groups. She says her thrift store is an ongoing fundraiser to help animal rescue organizations with the pursuit of one day becoming a no-kill city, where the shelter system doesn’t need to put down dogs and cats. She’s found many like-minded customers.</p><p></p> Fri, 02 Aug 2013 11:56:17 +0000 Kate Archer Kent 31453 at http://redriverradio.org Shreveport thrift shop proceeds benefit animal welfare
