Where To Spend This Summer

SHARE:

Now that COVID restrictions are gradually being lifted, DCHS Thrift Store is expecting many shoppers in the upcoming months.

The Dane County Humane Society Thrift Store can meet all of your summer shopping needs. New donations arrive every day and items are added to the sales floor all the time. You never know what kind of treasures you will find, so stop by often!

  • Need more play clothes for the kids? Most of our kids’ clothing is only $.99! So let them get messy without worrying about ruining expensive clothes!
  • Would you like to update your own wardrobe? We have a great selection of cute summer dresses and sandals.
  • Need something to do on rainy days? We have toys, puzzles, movies and books for all ages, and our books are an awesome value at 3 books for $.99!
  • Do you have a cute little cabin in the woods? We can help you stock that cabin with dishes, linens and furniture without spending a fortune!
  • Are there athletes in the family? We frequently receive donations of sporting goods like golf clubs, tennis rackets, balls and bats, and the occasional skateboard. Summer is the perfect time to try a new activity without spending a lot on new equipment.

In addition to our everyday low prices, you can take advantage of our weekly dot discount items as well as our Rover’s Rewards frequent shopper program.

And, did you know that you can purchase a DCHS Thrift Store tote bag for just $10 and use it every Tuesday to get a 10% discount on anything you can fit in the bag?

The Thrift Store, located at 6904 Watts Road, is open Sunday/Monday from 12:00-5:00 pm and Tuesday-Saturday from 12:00-7:00 pm. Shop and donate knowing that you are supporting all of the great work that we do helping people help animals!
