We have two great ways to shop and help AARF

Help AARF and get nice things for yourself:

  1. Visit our Second Chances Thrift Boutique in The Farrington (see below) for all kinds of clothing, electronics, household goods and much more. We also have selected AARF merchandise at the store. From The Valley, drive East on the long path road towards our shelter and it will be on the right hand side in the very large, blue building that houses the BIG Store.

  2. Get merchandise (with the AARF logo and other nice graphics). Get our goodies from our affiliated very special friends, Second Chances or from our shelter/adoption center at Morlens Veterinary Clinic (map).

Second Chances Store is in the BIG Store Building

The Second Chances thrift store is in the BIG Store Building on the Long Path road.

Please do NOT park in the lot to the LEFT of the store on the main road as you face the store from the main road. There is an auto repair shop operating out of containers there, and they will object.

Instead, turn and drive down the street as though you were going to the BIG Store and, right away, turn left into the lot to the side of the building.

Volunteers are always welcomed and needed; if interested in volunteering at the store, please email our Volunteers Chair.

Please send us an email if you would like an update on our hours or or for other information:


Our fantastic donation drop box is in place on the Wallblake Catholic church grounds (map here). Destroyed in Hurricane Irma, it was rebuilt!

Drive into the church driveway and you will see the box in the field to your left.

There is an opening on the side closest to the buildings that can be lifted.

Or take your donation (say, if it is too fragile) to the AARF Adoption Center/Shelter or to Second Chances when it is open.

Second Chances is critical to our fundraising efforts, and we appreciate any donations of new or gently used merchandise.

Huge thanks to Rebecca and Jim Taillon and Debbie Klingler, plus other AARF volunteers, for getting Second Chances up and running!

Please donate used goods in good/working condition, especially electronics as we have no good ways to test them (and also please make sure electronics have their adapters and/or chargers as well as any specialty cables with them). Thank you!
