Backyard Threads goes down as one of my top local animal shops. Not only do they sell quality items, but they also help Hand in Paw—a non profit organization in Birmingham that works with professionally-trained teams of handlers and their animals to help improve people’s day-to-day lives at numerous facilities throughout Central Alabama.


Backyard Threads is run by a Hand in Paw volunteer who helped create “uniforms” and “activity vests” for therapy dogs. A portion of all sales goes toward creating these special uniforms.
