Sandpoint Thrift Shop - Panhandle Animal Shelter

Thrift Store

Panhandle Animal Shelter Thrift Store is here for you! We offer the community quality, resale clothing, housewares, electronics, furniture and more at very affordable prices.  Every day you can find a new treasure or bargain. We annually hold sales events for Halloween, Winter, Ski and Boarding Equipment, Christmas along with craft, toy, book and houseware blowouts.

Your purchase from the Thrift Store directly benefits the animals and the Shelter’s mission to provide for dogs and cats in transition with love, medical care and a secure place while waiting for new homes. Sales also help support the Shelter’s community outreach programs which further benefit families, their animals and the community. In fact, the Thrift Store provides a substantial amount of the monies needed for the Shelter’s operating budget.

We gratefully accept your gently used donations. Please think of the animals when downsizing, moving, post-yard sale, or just freshening up the home. However, it does take money away from the animals to dispose of unsaleable items. Please only donate clean goods in saleable condition. Please click here for a list of items we accept. We are unable to take large appliances (stoves, washer/dryers etc.), box TVs, mattresses, pianos or organs. If you wish to make a large donation, such as an estate, please call in advance to ensure we have the necessary staff on hand to assist.

The Thrift Store is a fun place to shop we hope you will stop by soon for your next treasure!


Bring all donations to the Thrift Store. We have signage marking the way in order to drop off donations.

Please know how much you are helping the animals, families and the community with your support!
