Best Friend Thrift Shop
Visit and support the resale shop. WE NEED YOU to continue our life saving mission.
All funds raised at the thrift shop are used directly to help our pets with spaying and neutering, boarding, food and veterinary bills.
The shop is also a drop off location for much needed cat food, litter and dog food.
When you buy an item at the resale shop you are buying time for a helpless animal whose time would be up at the pound if not for the rescue group. We do offer new and good quality, slightly used merchandise for sale. We have new scarves, hats, jewelry, belts, and hair accessories for sale. There is also a nice selection of home decor.
The thrift shop is a drop off center for brass, copper, 14K gold and sterling silver. We are always in need of good quality donations to restock the shelves. The volunteers would love to have small furniture, jewelry, antiques, and new or slightly worn clothing, shoes and purses. For larger quantity donations or what we are currently accepting it is best to call first since our space is limited.

Mothers Day Plant Sale
Saturday, May 11th

Hosted at the Best Friend Thrift Shop
We will hold are annual Mother’s Day Plant and Bake Sale Saturday May 11, 2019 at the Best Friend Thrift Shop.
We will have baked goods, empanadas, plants and our beautiful Best Friend T shirts/sweatshirts for sale!!!! This year, we received a large donation of new sterling silver rings and new lightweight wraps/shawls for cool evening nights that will be available for sale. In addition we always have nice new jewelry sets, socks, scarves, summer hats for you beach goers for sale at reasonable prices. Most of the store will be 60 per cent off. Some exceptions!!!!
The Best Friend Rescue group is a not for profit organization run solely by volunteers. All items sold in the shop are donated by the community for the benefit of homeless animals. In addition we will have tons of jewelry sets and individual necklaces, earrings and bracelets for sale. Also, an array of new gift items such as hair accessories, summer hats, and beautiful lightweight scarves for your Mother’s Day gift selections. When you buy an item for your Mother at the resale shop you are buying time for a helpless animal whose time would be up at the pound if not for the rescue group.
Please help us to continue to save lives and give the gift of life to an unfortunate animal waiting to be rescued. It is due to our customers that come in and buy our merchandise that we are able to save a shelter animal or a stray. Our veterinary and boarding expenses are very high because we value every life that is entrusted in our care until a permanent home can be found through adoption. Our motto is “we speak for those who can’t... for they have no one to turn to”.
This Mother’s Day think of how much you love your pet too! Help an unfortunate one find love and a forever home. Visit and support the resale shop. Now find us on Facebook, become a friend, check for events, adoptions and shop specials.
If anyone would like to donate $5.00 or $10 toward the purchase of plants (we do purchase some at wholesale prices), as many of the nurseries have closed. It would help defray the cost of purchasing. Donations can be made on Pay Pal... just indicate plant sale or it can be dropped off at the shop. Please tell volunteers it is for the plant sale.
If you would like to donate to the bake sale, items can be dropped off Saturday, the day of the sale. For those who cannot make it Saturday, baked goods can be dropped off at the shop from 10 AM - 4 PM on Friday.
