Why choose our candles?

When you purchase a Wicks for Wags candle you are supporting the Animal Rights Cause.  A minimum of 10% of the proceeds are donated to animal shelters and rescue groups around the United States to help and protect animals in need.  

Our candles are vegan, eco-friendly, clean burning and ridiculously good-smelling.  They are dye-free, made with lead-free cotton wicks, phthalate-free fragrance oils and soy wax from soybeans grown on American Farms.  Soy candles are non-toxic, biodegradable and do not release harmful soot and carcinogens like paraffin candles...AND last much longer!  Good for the environment. Good for our furry friends. Good for you.

You can find us at events, in stores and shop our Etsy page.  And if candles aren't your thing then you can go directly to your local shelter or find your favorite cause to donate to! 

About Us

Hello! I'm Juno and I live in Raleigh, NC with my owner Melissa. We have always been animal rescue and protect advocates and have a love of making the best smelling candles around. So, we took our love of candles and animals and created Wicks for Wags. We are thrilled that our customers can purchase eco-friendly candles to enjoy themselves and still know they are helping animals that cannot help themselves. Keep reading below for more information on our candles and please contact us with any questions or custom orders.
