Small Thrift Store On Track to Raise $1 Million For Atlanta’s Homeless Pets

Second Life Atlanta, a non-profit thrift store in DeKalb County, has a mission to raise $1 million for metro Atlanta’s and Georgia’s homeless pets and animals in need. So far they have raised $890,000 and expect to reach the $1 million mark later this year. Second Life Atlanta supports over 50 area rescue groups and pet charities with quarterly grants. They hold adoption events and regularly showcase foster cats in both of their stores, located next to each other in Avondale Estates.

 

Second Life was the brainchild of Tanya and Toby Tobias, a local couple who left careers in the airline indus-try and education field, respectively, in order to devote their time to helping homeless pets. Their thrift stores of-fer daily sales for shoppers, including Tuesday Military Appreciation Day and Thursday Senior Shopping Days (25% off and their senior discount starts at age 55). They also have 40% off sales regularly on Saturdays.

 

Generous donations of gently used goods from animal lovers mean the store has been stocked with every-thing from designer label fashions to an antique player piano!
