The SPCA Albrecht Center for Animal Welfare operates two area Thrift Stores that offer everything from pet care items and clothing, to jewelry, furniture and more. 

 

100% of the revenue from every sale at the Thrift Stores 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.

 

Have yard sale leftovers or just need to get rid of some gently used items? Bring donations to any Thrift Store location or call us to schedule a FREE pickup if you have larger donations (Details below). A donation tax receipt will be provided.

 

PLEASE check "Acceptable Donations" below before scheduling an appointment.  Thank you!
