Your donation helps keep Austin a No-Kill city!
APA! Thrift welcomes your quality new and gently used items for sale in our store. Austin Pets Alive! is a 501c3 non-profit organization, and all donations are eligible for a tax-deductible receipt.
Donations are welcome at both locations Monday through Wednesday from 10am-6pm, Thursday from 10am-8pm, and Friday through Sunday from 6-8pm!
If possible, because weekends tend to be very busy with customers, we ask that you please drop off donations during the week. Thank you in advance!
Unsellable donations must be disposed of at a high cost to the store, thus taking time and money away from the shelter. We respectfully request that donations are clean, in good condition (free of stains and holes), from a smoke-free environment, and are included on the below list of acceptable donations.
If donating an item of an estimated value exceeding $100, please remember to alert the staff or volunteer receiving the donation.
Our two locations have limited storage space, and we are regrettably unable to accept all items for donation. Please see the below lists of items we can accept and cannot accept.
