Second Chance Animal Rescue charity shops

our shops

We have two charity shops where we sell a wide selection of high-quality used goods at very reasonable prices. The SCAR Clare charity shop at 20 Skycourt Centre in Shannon opened in September, 2011, business hours are 10.00 am – 5.30 pm Monday to Saturday.

Our Kilrush charity shop, located in The Mews at the back of the Buttermarket on Burton Street, opened in August, 2014, business hours are Monday to Saturday, from 11 am to 5 pm.

All monies raised in the SCAR Clare charity shops goes directly and exclusively towards the health and welfare of all the animals in our care. A BIG “Thank you” to all (you know who you are) for your generous and continued support, you help make it all possible.


We gratefully accept donations of clothes, soft furnishings, jewellery, bric-a-brac, books, DVDs, CDs, toys and anything you think someone else might like to buy from our charity shop. Any donations would be gratefully received. Unfortunately we are unable to take electrical goods or large items, such as furniture. Donations can be dropped off at any one of our charity shops. Gifts of pet food, pet baskets, collars etc. for our Dogs and Cats shelters can also be left at either charity shop.

Please do not bring animals for re-homing to either shop, neither our shops or volunteers are equipped to accept animals. Visit the contact page for information on re-homing animals.


If you have a day, morning or afternoon to spare on a regular basis, enjoy meeting new people, and want to help animals in need, then why not become part of our friendly team of shop volunteers?
