Second Life is 501C(3) non-profit organization that opened their first store in 2011 in Avondale Estates. We operate 2 community-focused resale stores that allow us to raise much-needed funds to benefit animal rescues and spay/neuter programs. Our Main Store and Furniture, Decor & More stores share a parking lot and are located next door to each other at 1 N. and 89 N. Clarendon Avenue.
We are not a rescue. Second Life does not have its own shelter or rescue license. Instead, our organization was created to benefit rescue groups who are already saving lives and helping families be a part of the solution to pet overpopulation.
While our stores are the the most visible part of our organization, we are more than a store. Second Life is a charity organization focused on:
- -promoting pet adoption and our love of rescue pets
- -educating families about being responsible pet parents
- -providing resources for other groups to help families keep their pets and to promote their animals up for adoption
Our stores are how we reach our mission. Our stores are filled with items donated by animal lovers and the general public (things you'd find in your home and patio). In turn, we provide cash grants to animal rescues and spay/neuter programs from our proceeds. save money. save a pet's life..
