Thrift Shop

We sell anything from clothes, shoes or home decor to even cars. Yes! We've sold a very kind gentleman's unwanted used car which helped us tremendously.

So whatever you have unwanted, we welcome it!

Please bring your stuff to us and we'll happily sell them at our Thrift Shop. 

Why is Thrifting good?

It's good for the planet, as we buy less new stuff thus creating less waste. 

It's good because we donate our unwanted stuff to be sold for a greater cause instead of creating more waste.

It's good for the pocketA second-hand garment costs far less than a brand new one. Plus, it's cool to wear vintage <3

To sum up; it's good for the animals here, the planet and for us!

A win-win-win!

So whatever you have unwanted, please bring it with you during your next visit at The Retreat.

Or if you are looking for something, you never know - it might be waiting for you here!

Let's double in size

With 1,250+ animal residents and 20,000+ animals saved over our 30 years of operation, there's land on sale next to The Retreat and we have to double in size so we can help many more animals! For them.
All they need is your help <3
