Donating Guidelines


By donating items and shopping at our store, you are helping our pets and reducing our carbon footprint. We resell items for a return to the pets at the CCHS shelter. We recycle unusable clothing. This keeps items out of landfills and the profit directly benefits pets in our shelter waiting for a second chance at their furever home.

  • Donations are accepted at the front of the store. We ask that you please do not leave items outside of the store or at any other time. We are also happy to provide you with a tax deduction slip at the time of the donation.
  • Furniture/large appliance pick up available for a donation.
