Humans can find the missing pieces for their homes and kitchens with the lightly used furnishings and appliances at Second Chances Thrift Store, but homeless animals are the ones that really benefit the most from each sale. That's because the shop donates all proceeds to Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, a no-kill shelter and a foster program for homeless animals that might otherwise roam the streets with their possessions in a handkerchief tied on a stick. A large inventory of kitchen appliances, books, and furniture flows constantly through the store. Additionally, shoppers can find antiques peppered throughout the selection, identifiable by their black-and-white appearance.
