One way this is achieved is through our Retail Thrift Stores. Your support with donations of good quality items for re-sale through these outlets is very much appreciated. If you are near one of our shops, please call in and browse; they are full of great bargains - books, bric-a-brac, household goods, clothing, accessories and toys. Our shops are staffed by volunteers - all money raised at these stores goes back into the care of lost and surrendered animals.
