ASHLAND, OH - The Central Ohio Sheltie Rescue recognized Mainstreet Studios (located at 1539 Cleveland Avenue in Ashland) and all their artists for helping with a fundraiser that took place on November 3rd, 2018.

In November, the Mainstreet Studios Tattoo Fundraiser netted roughly $3,200 by accepting a $50.00 donation per tattoo. Participants had five tattoos to choose from.

We really appreciate what Main Street Studios has done for us,” said Julie Longnecker of the Central Ohio Sheltie Rescue. “The day at Main Street Studios was very pleasant and fun. All the artists were very accommodating.”

Central Ohio Sheltie Rescue is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit, ALL Volunteer organization that helps homeless or abandoned Shetland Sheepdogs also known as "Shelties" to find good homes.

Longnecker was quoted as saying, “We are a nonprofit organization and have rescued over 900 dogs since the group was organized in 2000. We are an all-volunteer, foster-based organization and sanctuary. We are mainly a Shetland Sheepdog Sheltie rescue, but we do have some Sheltie mix dogs in the rescue, and we will find them homes just like the rest.”

Dan Doubek, owner of Mainstreet Studios, commented that the shop will have been in business for over 19 years this September.

“We are pleased to give back to the community, we try to do that throughout the year," Doubek said. "We raised a lot of money and 100% was given to the Sheltie Rescue.”

Mainstreet Studios can be reached at their website or via phone at 419-207-1178.
