Net proceeds from The Thrifty Kitty support Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS) the animal shelter for Alameda.
Our mission to re-home animals sparked our passion to create The Thrifty Kitty as a vibrant space to re-home clothing, artwork, and household items. FAAS receives nearly 1,000 lost, abandoned, and surrendered animals a year, and saves 96% through innovative programs, community partnerships, and support from a passionate base of volunteers and donors.

Thank you to all for making our first year a success!!

Your imagination is your only limitation -- find a plant, then find the perfect place for it. Just think -- you'll be re-homing a cast-off container AND adding the beauty and benefit of a living plant to your home.
Move over, Amazon. Thrifty Kitty's book section is regularly updated to include Amazon best sellers using the same criteria of title requests.
