A New Leash On Life has three thrift stores in Madison County. It’s one of the organization’s big money makers. It’s how they provide care for animals in need, but during the current coronavirus pandemic the three stores are closed.
However, the executive director has found a unique way in order to make some money using the thrift stores.
“We are using our online Facebook page to do online sales and then people can come in and pick up the items that they purchased curbside and pay for them and we still raise money for the pets,” said Executive Director Debbie Dodd.
Every year A New Leash on Life takes care of more than 3,000 animals. They even cover vet bills.
“We are suffering monetarily and our income is way down because the stores are closed. Selling things on our Facebook page is way less than having our three stores open regularly,” said Dodd.
The executive director says if you want to make a donation they are still taking them but you can only bring them to this location on Andrew Jackson Way in Huntsville.
