Open Textbook in Library


Hey! We love animals.

Secondhand Stories is a registered non-profit online used book shop based out of Lombardy, Ontario (one hour south-west of Ottawa). We accept donations of gently used books from the community and resell them on our website to help raise funds for our sanctuary. It is a passion project that aims to bring the reading and animal loving community together to make a positive impact.

Our Mission

Secondhand Stories mission is to provide a loving forever home to abandoned, abused, and neglected farmed animals.

Our Roots


Secondhand Stories started as a fundraising initiative for our friends at The Sweet Sanctuary. We started an Instagram page in 2020 selling books and donating all the profits - raising over $25,000 for them! After supporting The Sweet Sanctuary for many years, and being inspired by them, we have finally followed our dreams and purchased a rural home with 28 acres to start our own microsanctuary.
