Austin Pets Alive! | APA! Thrift Stores

Jun 29, 2022

APA! Thrift is a boutique-style shop – now with three locations – that sells high-quality new and gently used items for very low prices. In addition to the incredible deals on amazing finds, all net proceeds directly support the innovative lifesaving programs and animals of Austin Pets Alive!.

You can find amazing deals while saving lives! Donate your new and gently used items. Attend one of our fun-filled in-store events! Volunteer at both our three locations. As a bonus, if you’re an APA! foster, you’ll receive 20% off (discount does not apply to any APA! retail store or to APA! logo merchandise)!

What can I donate? 

Donation Hours: Sunday: 12–6 PM, Monday-Thursday: 12-6 PM, and Friday–Saturday: 11 AM–6 PM

APA! Thrift welcomes your quality new and gently used items for sale in our stores. Austin Pets Alive! is a 501c3 non-profit organization, and all donations are eligible for a tax-deductible receipt.

Unsellable donations must be disposed of at a high cost to the store, thus taking time and money away from the shelter. We respectfully request that donations are clean, in good condition (free of stains and holes), from a smoke-free environment, and are included on the below list of acceptable donations.
