Donate To The Benefit Shop!

Are you out of room because you have too many things you never used? Are you downsizing or simply changing your décor? The Benefit Shop has a solution for you! We gratefully accept vintage and new: jewelry (real or costume), china, crystal, silver, linens, giftware, art, collectibles, small household furnishings, kitchenware, pet and garden supplies and more. We do not accept clothes, shoes or books at this time due to lack of space. All donations are tax-deductible.

We accept donations Thursday thru Saturday from 10:00 – 5:00. Furniture and larger items by prior arrangement with Shop Manager 

Thanks to the dedicated staff and volunteers at our Santa Cruz Shelter Benefit Shop, your unwanted items can be turned into needed funds to support all the services provided for our community by the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter, such as Planned Pethood and the Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Program.

And, if you’re looking for a great place to shop, the Benefit Shop will always provide something new for bargain hunters and treasure hunters alike. The inventory is constantly changing, so you never know what you might find!


Not only do we benefit the animals and feel good about what we do, we have fun too. For information about volunteering at the Shop, please contact Leila Dunn or 831-246-3870.
