Help Save Homeless Animals with Redstone Discounts! at the GHHS Thrift Store

You'll find a great selection of items at the GHHS Thrift Store, and every purchase will help animals in need!

If you love shopping and have a passion for animals, then you need to head on over to the Greater Huntsville Humane Society’s Thrift Store! You’ll find all sorts of treasures at the GHHS Thrift Store, ranging from beautiful gowns and housewares to antiques and furniture. Plus, Redstone members enjoy a special discount thanks to Redstone Discounts!®

“The GHHS Thrift Store began as a way to support the animals in the shelter. The first store location opened on North Parkway in 1970. It was a small shop, just large enough for a couple racks of clothes and a couch set or two,” says Lisa Mendes, Thrift Store Manager at the GHHS. “Since then, the thrift store has moved to a much larger building located behind the shelter on Johnson Road. We now have a dedicated reading room and bookshelves, as well as an open floorplan of clothes and household goods,” she says.

The Thrift Store has lots of items to look through, from beautiful glassware to clothing and furniture.

The best part of the thrift store? 100% of the proceeds are donated to the animals at the shelter looking for forever homes. Last year, GHHS helped over 500 pets find new families. Your purchases from the Thrift Store will help them find homes for even more homeless pets this year!

“The staff and volunteers want to make a difference in the lives of the homeless animals, and fortunately the Huntsville community is very supportive of our mission. Our customers receive so much more than furniture or clothes; they also receive the joy of helping animals through their purchases,” Lisa shares.

The Thrift Store appreciates the Huntsville community and looks forward to expanding their reach by offering a discount of 10% to Redstone members.  Simply use your Redstone debit or credit card and ask for the Redstone Discount. “We want our Thrift Store to be available to more donors and customers. Redstone Discounts is a wonderful way for a non-profit to preserve its resources and yet introduce our Thrift Store to a new section of our community. It gives more people the opportunity to support homeless animals,” says Lisa.

Without our community’s support, the GHHS would not be able to serve the vast amount of animals it does every year. “As a private non-profit, we thrive because of our volunteers. The Thrift Store volunteers are dedicated to the Thrift Store, often working in weekly rotations and outside of normal business hours to keep everything running smoothly,” Lisa states.

The next time you have an itch to go shopping, head over to the GHHS Thrift Store first! You never know what treasures you will find. Your purchases will help a variety of animals—from puppies and cats to guinea pigs and rabbits—find their forever homes. The Thrift Store is open Monday through Saturday from 9:30 to 4:30. Check out their website for more information and like their Facebook page to discover some special finds available in the store.
