Volunteering at ReTails provides a wonderful opportunity to help combat pet overpopulation and help end the unnecessary euthanasia of adoptable cats and dogs in North Carolina shelters.

We understand that your volunteer commitment at ReTails Thrift Shop is meant to resolve legal obligations, so the orientation process and volunteer procedures are a little different from our regular volunteer program. Our court-approved time records accurately track your volunteer hours and provide you with the paperwork you need to certify the completion of your assigned service.

  • You must be 18 years of age or older, unless accompanied by a legal guardian.
