WHERE SHOPPING SAVES LIVES

 

The SPCA Albrecht Center for Animal Welfare operates a boutique Thrift Store in the Mitchell Plaza in Aiken, SC that offers everything from pet care items and clothing, to jewelry, furniture and more. 100% of the revenue from every sale at the Thrift Store goes to the SPCA Albrecht Center for Animal Welfare to help feed, treat, shelter and and find loving homes for the animals in our care.
