Cedar Valley Humane Society opens thrift store in Cedar Rapids

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The Cedar Valley Humane Society has a retail outlet not for dogs or cats but their owners.

The Second Chance Thrift store on Center Point Road in Cedar Rapids is now open.

The store has clothes and house wares and other goods that would be found in any thrift store but the Humane Society owns it and runs it.

As part of the grand opening, there were pets from the shelter, a pet spa, a veterinary clinic and some good deals for shoppers.

The store has actually been open since May 4th but Saturday was the big kickoff.

"Our goal is when people walk away today not only did the help the animals but their helping our community." Said Bob Citrullo, Executive Director of the Cedar Valley Humane Society.

Proceeds from the store go directly to the Cedar Valley Humane Society to help homeless animals.
