The Doggie Bag Resale Shop

The SEK Humane Society's Doggie Bag Resale Shop has thousands of items at bargain prices and all proceeds from the store go to support the homeless animals at the Society's shelter. The Doggie Bag has been in operation since 1987 and is the 2nd largest source of income for the Humane Society (the first is donations). The Society greatly depends on the store's monthly earnings. The profits of the resale stop help pay for: rent, building utilities, veterinary care, spay/neuter surgeries, cleaning supplies, and food for the animals.
The Doggie Bag accepts donations during open hours and can always use extra help sorting donations as well as help operating the register and front desk. All donations need to be dropped off at the stores back garage area so items can be properly sorted.  If interested in volunteering at the store, or if you have questions about merchandise, please call 620-230-0369 or go to the store.
