Cat Tales ~ St. Paws

Recently Mommy had a pile of unwanted items that she wanted to donate to a thrift store. But she wanted a thrift store that supported local animal shelters. She looked and looked and she finally found one. St. Paws.
St. Paws helps other organizations who are engaged in protecting, sheltering, and caring for abandoned, neglected, and abused animals. They have two thrift stores - one located in Colorado Springs and the other in West Columbia, South Carolina. 100% of the profit from the sales at their thrift stores go to helping these rescue organizations. As of April 2013, they had donated over $100, 000 to local rescue and animal welfare groups.
You may not have a St. Paws where you are, but Me's sure you have a local animal shelter or rescue organization. Please support them any way you can - your help will be greatly appreciated!

We were on the road this weekend, during the great PNW monsoon, and were in a sandwich shop. Noticed an animal shelter thrift shop across the street and thought what a good idea.

We have a local rescue charity we donate to and so knew who to call when we became an accidental cat foster family.

Great idea! We used to have a thrift store here that supported the local humane society but they closed down. I think direct appeals for money brought in more funds.

No thrift shop here that supports the animals. But always plenty of fundraising going on for them. A thrift shop would be a purrr-fect idea, though.
