About the WHS Thrift Shop

Proceeds from purchases at the WHS Thrift Shop benefit daily operations and care for the domestic, wild and farm animals in our shelters.  A percentage of monthly sales (varies, depending on how often the shop is open/total sales) will be donated to WeSNiP (Whatcom Education Spay & Neuter Impact Program) for the next 24 months (Sept, 2022).

Thank you for your generous support.

In mid 2020, WHS was in communication with our good friends at WeSNiP (Whatcom Education Spay Neuter Impact Program) regarding the transfer of ownership/operations of their extremely successful ReSale store venue. WeSNiP has done a tremendous job over the years building and maintaining their impressive ReSale venue and developing a loyal customer base. They made the decision to focus their limited resources elsewhere, which provided the Whatcom Humane Society with the opportunity to take over daily operations of the store and venue and build on the strong foundation that WeSNiP created.  We assumed ownership on September 1st, 2020.
