Save Lives with Every Purchase

Exciting news! Berkeley Humane is opening a thrift shop! It will not be your typical thrift store, rather it will be a boutique offering quality second hand and vintage items to benefit shelter animals in our community. The Thrift Shop will have a carefully curated selection of gently-loved and vintage clothing, household goods, home decor, artwork, jewelry, and small pieces of furniture. We can’t wait to share it with you!
