Barkin' Basement Thrift Shop Opens in Port Jefferson


On May 21, Save-A-Pet President/Founder Dori Scofield joined elected officials in the grand opening of Barkin' Basement Thrift Shop in Port Jefferson Village. The store is located at 116 East Main Street.

Local elected officials were on hand to issue proclamations in honor of the grand opening and took part in a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Barkin' Basement is a thrift store selling high-end and lightly used donated items. The store will be operated by Save-A-Pet volunteers. All sales proceeds will go to benefit Save-A-Pet in helping the animals at its no-kill shelter.

The grand opening also coincides with the first anniversary of the grand opening of Castaways, a retail pet store located in Chandler Square in Port Jefferson which sells pet accessories and offers animals for adoption.

"We are very pleased to open Barkin' Basement here in the heart of beautiful Port Jefferson," Ms. Scofield said. "The store will offer quality donated items for sale which local residents, visitors and tourists can purchase. When they buy an item from the store, they will support our mission in helping our shelter animals and getting the word out on animal adoption."

Barkin' Basement is currently looking for adults ages 18 and over to volunteer their time at the store and is accepting gently used furniture, clothing, bric-a-brac and home décor. All donations will be accepted at Save-A-Pet, 608 Route 112, Port Jefferson Station.

To volunteer, or for more information, contact Save-A-Pet at (631) 473-6333, or visit www.saveapetli.org.
