Second Life has two upscale thrift store in the Atlanta, GA area that were created with the mission of giving homeless pets a second chance at life.
Our 5,000 square foot main store sells gently-used clothing, housewares, furniture, electronics, home décor, books, furniture and more! In turn, we support animal rescue charities and spay/neuter programs with much-needed cash donations. Our newest Furniture, Decor and More store opened in November 2013 and is located next door! Park once and shop twice! Find a treat for yourself and give homeless pets a second chance at life!
Since opening in 2011, our goal has been to offer our customers a unique and fun thrift store shopping experience where every purchase benefits homeless dogs and cats. Our store is bright, organized and fun! All items are donated so every visit is a treasure hunt – you never know what kind of goodies you’ll find – and new items are added daily. At Second Life, you will find everything from antiques to vintage to brand new items. Get consignment store quality at thrift store prices
You’ll find our store is geared to the bargain shopper and animal lovers- with fun animal motifs painted on the back wall, rescue and shelter information posted throughout the store – and our Chief Smile Officer, Riley, roaming the store and looking for a good ear scratch. We host pet adoptions on a monthly basis so animal rescue groups can find homes for their adorable dogs and cats.
Donations of gently-used items are needed year-round and can be donated during open store hours. No appointment is necessary. We are a 501(c)(3) organization and donations are tax deductible.
Well behaved pets on a leash who are up-to-date on vaccinations and
are preferably, spayed or neutered, are welcome. Their humans must be on a leash.
Second Life Expands!
Our Furniture Store is Now Open!
Second Life has expanded! We are out of space in our current store and have no place to display all the great furniture (and more) donations we receive! We didn't go far...just next door to 89 N. Clarendon Ave (the former Avondale Antiques building). Now, you can park once and shop twice!

We are especially in need of dry dog food, cat food, kitty litter and flea preventative and any kind of toy. Let's all help family pets stay with their families!
It's such a simple solution to a growing problem.
Drop off the items at our store anytime we are open. We will have a bin up front for small items...or larger items can be unloaded in the back! Thank you for helping make a difference for needy pets this holiday season.

Second Life Sponsored
Community Outreach Event
We had a great time at the Healthy Pets Dekalb Event on Saturday, November 16, 2013. LifeLine Animal Project vaccinated around 300 animals and more than 100 animals were signed up for spay/neuter surgeries to be a part of the solution. We were so happy to sponsor this event to help low-income families care for their pets and be a part of the solution to the pet-overpopulation problem in Atlanta.
We were excited to be able to offer financial support as well as leashes and collars to pe owners who showed up with belts, rope and chain in their place. Thanks to all our supporters for helping make this happen!
