In mid 2017 a few friends got together and decided to start a non-profit that would sell secondhand items, online and via pop ups, with the proceeds going to animal shelters and sanctuaries locally, nationally, and worldwide. And so they made it happen.
The NW Animal Foundation, a recognized 501 (c)(3) based in Portland, Oregon, is an organization that raises funds to support animal rescues, sanctuaries and other organizations that address or prevent abuse.
