Clothing Donations

Q: What kind of clothing is accepted?

A: Animals America accepts clean, new and used men’s, women’s and children’s clothing. Shoes, jewelry, and fashion accessories.

Q: What condition must the clothing be in?

A: Animals America accepts clothing in all conditions. We repurpose clothing for resale and recycling in order to fund our lifesaving programs. Clothing in great condition is put up for resale while clothing of lesser quality is sent for recycling. The largest program impact comes from clothing for resale while the lesser comes from recycling. Though both are greatly beneficial in providing life saving services to animals in need. Every bag of your unwanted clothing can change an animal’s life!

Q: How do I order a donation kit?

A: It’s as simple as clicking on the “Order a Donation Kit” button on our organization website.

Q: Will I receive verification of my donations for tax related purposes?

A: If you would like a receipt for your clothing donation, please fill out and return the postcard included in your donation kit, along with your clothing donation. A receipt will be emailed to you in approximately four weeks.

Q: I have a large donation. Do you provide pick up services?

A: At this time Animals America can only provide pick up services for large donations within a fifty-mile radius of our main office in Pittston, PA. If you are within the area stated, please feel free to give us a call, and we can arrange pick up service.

Purchasing from Our Store

Q: Am I helping animals by shopping on your site?

A: Yes! Every donation and every purchase works to fund critical lifesaving services to animals in need in abuse, crisis and disaster situations. As a supporter of Animals America, you can help fight abuse, stand up for animal welfare, and provide animals in need with another chance at life.

Q: How do I know what condition an item is in before I purchase it?

A: Animals America only lists items for sale in two conditions. New with tags or gently used. New with tags are items that were donated without ever being worn with original tags still attached. Gently used items are items that were donated after use in like new condition. Free of stains, tears and defects.

Q: What does the strikethrough pricing next to an item represent?

A: The strikethrough pricing is the estimated original retail price of the same or of a comparable item in new condition. Though we do our best to be as accurate as possible we suggest doing your own comparison shopping, as well.
