I enjoyed your story on recycling, but you missed telling everyone about Rescued Treasures Thrift Shop in Walnut Creek located at 1270 Newell Ave., in San Miguel Center, one block east of Whole Foods, in the same shopping center as Casper's Hotdogs. We have a big store in the back where Tuesday Morning used to be.
Rescued Treasures Thrift Shop benefits Community Concern for Cats, a cat rescue organization that has been around since 1986 helping cats in Contra Costa County. We rescue from the street and other unsafe places; rehabilitate cats and kittens with medical care, spay and neuter, foster care and adoption; and reduce the number of homeless kittens born each year to feral mothers through Trap-Neuter-Return programs.
We rely on the community to help us by bringing in their discarded furniture, collectibles, decor items, books, clothing and more to sell at our store and use the profit to pay for medicines, spay and neuters and other medical care costs for our cats. Last year we moved our thrift shop from Pleasant Hill near K-Mart to Walnut Creek so people may not know where we are. So thank you for this opportunity to tell them.
Please look for cat adoptions sponsored by Community Concern for Cats every Saturday and Sunday at Petco in Walnut Creek, and Pet Food Express in Lafayette and Pleasant Hill from 1 to 4 p.m. Our phone number is 925-937-3201.
