RANCHO SANTA FE — Orphaned Objects and Paws at the Ranch have winter-seasonal items ready for the holidays.Since Orphaned Objects opened its doors last August, the resale store on Helen Woodward Animal Center grounds has been buzzing with treasure seekers eager to peruse the shop’s constant influx of gently-used furnishings, home décor, books for adults and children, exclusive brand sporting goods, and designer shoes and clothing.
Donations from the Ranch and beyond provide a steady stream of items at prices suited to any budget. The holidays are here and seasonal cards, decorations and gift items are coming in daily.
Only steps away, Paws in the Ranch welcomes animal-loving visitors to the re-opening of the Center’s pet supply store. With a renewed focus on the local community, the store has a new look and is stacked to the rafters with boutique pet items, including collars and leashes by Up Country, pet toys by Hugglehounds, Lulubelles, PetLou and Blue Buffalo’s dog and cat food. Paws in the Ranch also offers a selection of fresh-baked pet treats from Three Dog Bakery.
“We see so many familiar faces from the local community on a regular basis,” said Paws in the Ranch Manager Megan McCarty. “We love being our adopters’ first-stop shop for supplies for their new babies, but we want to make sure our shelves are full of the types of items our local community picks up on a regular basis too. We know that our visitors like the convenient location and the fact that their shopping supports our orphan pets and programs.”
