Community Thrift Program

For all those items you’d like to put to good use, but are not suitable for the SF SPCA, we’ve partnered with Community Thrift San Francisco. Donate your used, saleable items to the Community Thrift Store in San Francisco and designate the SF SPCA (#63) as beneficiary. When the store sells your items, a percentage of the proceeds come to us. For details, visit Community Thrift of San Francisco or contact the store at 415.861.4910. Be sure to ask for a receipt, and check to make sure the proceeds of your donation are going to the SF SPCA. Please note, we cannot assist in pickup or delivery of items to Community Thrift. 

Ropes for Rescues

Donate your rope at the SF SPCA

Recycle your old climbing rope through the Ropes For Rescues Recycling Program here at the San Francisco SPCA.

Ropes for Rescues is a San Francisco-based recycling program that donates 20% of the dog leashes made from each rope to over 80 different Animal Rescues and  Shelters. Where has your rope been?
