Net proceeds from sales at 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, jewelry, artwork, books 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 Thrifty Kitty a destination for thrifters throughout the Bay Area and for making a difference to our animal friends.
The perfect gift for any occasion for every bargain hunter and thrift store shopper -- The gift of thrift.
Shopping at The Thrifty Kitty, you keep discarded items out of landfills and help animals in need.
Browse new and gently used clothes, fashion accessories, jewelry, housewares, pet items, framed art, home décor, collectibles, gifts, and other thoughtfully curated treasures. You'll get the feel of boutique shopping, with the added benefit of knowing your purchase helps care for animals and gives found treasures an extended life.
New items come in every day, and go out just about as fast. You'll find great prices, and a friendly staff.
Of course, we're pet friendly, so stop by with your pal and become a part of our thrifting community. Treats for pets; treasures for their pals.
Follow us on social media to keep up-to-date on new items, events and programs.

We're always looking for exciting new items, so the next time you need to re-home a well-loved treasure, please consider The Thrifty Kitty! We make it easy for you with on-line appointments and parking lot drop-off.
Thrifty Kitty staff recently added live plants to their inventory of garden and household plant containers, and now you'll find a curated collection of small furnishings to create complete home environments. 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. Just for fun, our books are arranged by colors of the rainbow. And at $4 for a hardcover best seller including cookbooks, $3 for paperbacks and kids' books, and a buck for comics, you can't beat the prices. Puzzles and games for the whole family.
We are fortunate to have many donors who choose The Thrifty Kitty to donate their fine art, collectibles, jewelry and accessories. From Italian glassware to "ugly pottery," whimsical frogs to music boxes, you'll often find a treasure someone has passed along for a good cause.
