Austin Pets Alive! Thrift Store

*UPDATE* from our very own Thrift Store Manager, “Austin Pets Alive! Thrift is off to a great start! Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has already shopped and donated. Word-of-mouth has been our best source for new shoppers and donations – help us keep spreading the word!

Due to the incredible support our community has already shown, we are particularly in need of a few types of donations:

  1. Designer anything! Designer items are flying off the racks and we’d love to have to your new or gently-used designer clothes, handbags and shoes.
  2. Jewelry! Sterling, gold and costume jewelry are also selling really well. We could use your help keeping our jewelry collection in stock.
  3. Books! (Particularly non-fiction.) Lucky for us, we’re having a hard time keeping non-fiction books on the shelf and could use your donations to fill up our bookshelves.

The animals of APA! thank you for your continued support! Come by and visit us soon!”

We are excited to announce the opening of Austin’s newest thrift store: Austin Pets Alive! Thrift.

Austin Pets Alive! Thrift is a store for humans that allows customers to “shop for you, save a life,” as proceeds will go towards APA!’s program costs. Modeled after successful shelter thrift stores in other cities around the country, APA! wanted to launch the first and only thrift store in Austin benefitting the city’s most vulnerable pets.

Located at 5801 Burnet Road, Austin Pets Alive! Thrift will be open every day from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and accepts donations of clothing, accessories and other small items and collectibles. Follow APA! Thrift on Facebook for more informations and updates!

While the store is focusing on humans, we’ll welcome pet items, as well! All donated items are tax deductible (tax receipt provided).

– Clothing
