Who We Are

Paws & Claws Thrift Shoppe is, by far, the most important fund-raiser for the Sierra County Humane Society. It covers a major part of Desert Haven Animal Refuge’s operating expenses. The organization would not survive as it is today without the monthly income from the shop.

The modest but very busy thrift and gift shop is located in a prime shopping area of the small town of Truth or Consequences. It operates entirely with a dedicated and hard-working crew of volunteers, which keeps it open from Thursdaay through Saturday year round, except on Fiesta Day, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day.

Our Business

  • We offer a large variety of good used and new items; one-of-a-kind items, vintage clothing, rare and first edition books, furniture and even valuable antiques.
  • We provide vouchers to nurses who gather items of clothing for indigents to wear after a hospital stay.
  • We save Bibles and religious books for several non-profit organizations state-wide.
  • We distribute clothing, blankets and household items to local victims of disasters and in times of crisis.
  • We save new toys and stuffed animals all year long to donate at Christmas to the Toys for Tots program.
  • Children’s books, craft items and quilt material are free of charge to local non-profit educators.
  • Complimentary coloring books, small toys and children newspapers about animals are handed out to well-behaved youngsters who visit the shop.
  • We donate boxes of new baseball caps to the residents of the NM Veterans Home.
  • Vouchers from the thrift shop are made available to people in need who come to us with a referral from specific community agencies.
