Thank you for your interest in Second Life, where cleaning out your closets and saving money means giving homeless pets a second chance at life! Everything we do is focused on helping animals, but we are not a rescue.  Instead, we opened our upscale thrift store to raise funds to help rescue groups and spay/neuter programs that are already doing amazing work saving lives. New merchandise is added daily in both stores, so the treasure hunt changes everyday!

Our Store

Our 5,000+ square foot Main Store opened in 2011 and sells gently-used clothing, housewares, electronics, décor, books, and more!  The variety is endless! 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.Learn more about the store that started it all here.

Our Online Store

Shop our online store from the comfort of your home – or anywhere, really. Our Shopify online store features our unique, vintage, kitschy, antique, vintage…and more! With over 1,500 items, we know you’ll find something you love.

Second Life is a Part of the Community

Second Life is not just a store.  We are part of the community and our goal is to make a difference by sharing our love for rescue animals.  In addition to running our stores, we:

  • foster cats from a local shelter to give them a chance to find their forever home.
  • host adoption events for animal rescue groups to help find forever homes
  • collect pet food and supplies for a pet food pantry, to help struggling families keep their pets.
  • educate about the importance of spaying/neutering, so families can be a part of the solution to overpopulation.
  • promote adoption and our love for rescue animals

We want our stores to be a destination for animal lovers and bargain shoppers!
