As an effort to provide additional revenue, Pickens Animal Rescue (PAR) opened a used furniture and household item thrift store in Jasper. By giving the community a place to take their tax-deductible donations, the proceeds directly impact the health and future of our unwanted Pickens County pets and the stability of this productive and successful rescue group. The volunteers working at the Rescued Furniture Store will be able to sell the donated items, providing additional income to aid in caring for the 100 dogs and cats in their daily care. The budget for PAR continues to climb each year as the demand for their service grows; unfortunately, personal donations are down due to economic changes in our society making PAR think of alternative ways to increase their resources.
The Rescued Furniture Store will feature sofas, chairs, desks, lamps, artwork, small household appliances, rugs, decorative items for the home. All donors will receive a receipt at the time the items are brought into the store. Merchandise changes daily so they welcome visitors to come by often and please remember Pickens Animal Rescue when you have items to donate!
Volunteers are needed to work at the Thrift Store but also to pick up donations, prepare items for sale and transfer items from the storage facility to the store. Contact the store if you are interested in learning how you can become a part of this great group of volunteers.
