  • 270 people are interested
2nd Chance Thrift Shop
just the beginning

We are inviting volunteers to help us Mon-Sat 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Sun 10:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. in our thrift shop, which supports shelter animals.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, please complete our online Thrift Shop Volunteer Application using the link below. Once we receive a completed application, our volunteer coordinator will be in touch with you to arrange orientation and get you engaged!


This is a great opportunity to support the lost and abandoned pet population in Upland.

Donations, purchases, and assistance support the care and adoption of animals at the Upland Animal Shelter who need their second chance.

We need volunteers at our thrift shop to help process incoming donations, keep the sales floor clean and neat, assist customers, and help at special sales. And, if you have a particular area of interest, we also need volunteers to specialize in specific areas such as clothing, linens, home goods, electronics, garden, etc. Since our thrift shop helps support our shelter operation, you will be helping shelter pets too. Our Volunteer Coordinator will schedule based on your availability. Whether it is once a week or once a month for a few hours, we will gladly welcome your help.

Please wear old clothes and closed-toed shoes.

We could not do this without you! Thank you for your help.

About Friends of Upland Animal Shelter


1275 San Bernardino Rd, UPLAND, CA 91786, US

Mission Statement

Friends of Upland Animal Shelter was formed solely out of a desire to support the Upland Animal Shelter so that it can provide a high quality of animal care and find homes for as many animals as possible. We have worked in a collaborative manner with the City since our inception and today are honored to operate the sheltering and adoption functions at Upland Animal Shelter on behalf of the City. Despite the challenges associated with an open intake municipal facility that cannot turn animals away, we are dedicated to operating under a "no kill" philosophy that aims to save every shelter pet.


Friends operates the Upland Animal Shelter on behalf of the City of Upland, and also owns and operates 2nd Chance Thrift Shop. Our nonprofit thrift shop sells men's, women's, and children's clothing; shoes; purses; hats; jewelry; bedding; household goods and decor; crafts; books; CD's; DVD's; electronics; sporting goods; artwork; antiques; and furniture. All proceeds from our thrift shop go to support the health and well-being of animals in our care at Upland Animal Shelter.


Animals, Community
