Important Merger Update
We love the WHS Thrift Store as much as you do, and we’re thrilled to announce that it will stay open at its current location in downtown Salem. Our merger with OHS will not bring immediate changes to the shop. Your donations and purchases are a major source of revenue for pets and the people that love them, and we’re so grateful for the community’s support.
Our Thrift Store is staffed by volunteers who assist with customer service, pricing, and display. Gain valuable retail experience, as you work with a team of dedicated animal lovers.
We accept donations of gently used clothing, home decor, household goods, toys, collectibles, jewelry, sporting goods, and more. Your donations are tax-deductible. Each time you donate, you reduce your environmental impact while you support shelter cats and dogs.
Donations are accepted until 4 p.m. Please pull around to the back of the store—accessible from Union and High Street—and ring the door bell.
These are things we can’t accept as donations:
- Most furniture
- Building materials
- Mattresses and box springs
