About the Thrift Store

Oregon Humane Society (OHS) Thrift Store, formerly Willamette Humane Society Thrift Store, opened its doors in 1968. We opened as a revenue source to support shelter services, but we’ve since become one of the most popular thrift stores in Salem.

Whether you contribute to our Thrift Store by donating, shopping, or volunteering your time, you make a difference for shelter cats and dogs. 

We’re open Monday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Donations are accepted by appointment only from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. by appointment only. Please call to schedule your donation appointment: 503-362-6892.

Visit us at 548 High St. NE in downtown Salem. We’re right across the street from the Salem Parkade for easy parking.

Ways to Support the Store

Our Thrift Store is staffed by volunteers who assist with customer service, pricing, and display. Gain valuable retail experience and work alongside a team of dedicated animal lovers. We even have doggy visitors peruse the aisles!

We accept donations of gently used clothing, home décor, household goods, toys, collectibles, jewelry, sporting goods, and more. Your donations are tax-deductible. Each time you donate, you reduce your environmental impact while you support shelter cats and dogs.

Donations are accepted by appointment only from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. by appointment only. Please call to schedule your donation appointment: 503-362-6892.
