Our Thrift Store is Moving!

We are excited to announce that our SPCA-NN Thrift Store is moving to 75 E. Moana Street! Our new location was painstakingly selected and renovated to better accommodate our customers and mission. We are currently stocking this new location with merchandise and fantastic deals for our community.

We are working our little tails off to open for DONATIONS ONLY at our new location by mid-June! As you can imagine, COVID-19 has complicated our moving and re-opening process, and we really appreciate our community’s continued patience and support. Our thrift store proceeds are a critical part of our life-saving budget, and we need your donations and patronage to save thousands of at-risk pets annually.

Please continue to hold onto your spring cleaning donation items for a little while longer. In mid June we will take them off your paws to help save and improve the lives of homeless pets!! Stay tuned for more details…

Purchasing New Wheels to Save More Homeless Pets

We reunite or find new homes for thousands of lost and abandoned pets from all over Northern Nevada every year.

But we’ve grown out of our current transport van that brings them to our facility. We need your help to raise $150,000 that will provide a safe way to transport our four-legged friends!
