Old East Davis is also home to a few other unique housing cooperatives, businesses and other features.
SPCA Thrift Store
920 Third Street
The Yolo County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, or YCSPCA, was founded in 1974 by a small group of dedicated people committed to improving the lives of animals in the area. Through the years, we have grown and expanded our programs to help better serve the animals, and people, of Yolo County. Through adoption events, public education and outreach, and active promotion of the benefits of spaying and neutering, Yolo County SPCA strives to provide a better future for the people and pets in our community.
Davis Bike Collective
1221 ½ fourth Street
The Davis Bicycle Collective is a volunteer-run 501(c)3 nonprofit community bicycle organization. We provide a public D.I.Y. shop where folks share tools, skills, and knowledge about bike maintenance and repair. Our aim is to empower confident and committed cyclists through education and community building, and to encourage more cyclists by making bikes and bike maintenance, fun, safe, and accessible for everyone.
J Street Co-op
234 J Street
J Street Co-op is one of the cooperative houses in Davis. Both J Street and its sibling co-ops, Cornucopia Corner Co-op and Sunwise, are managed by the Solar Community Housing Association, a non-profit organization whose board is comprised mainly of current and former J Street, Cornucopia Corner Co-op, Sunwise, and Domes community members. J Street Co-op is in Old East Davis in a house built in the 1920s. The house was the former location of the Davis Art Center and was converted back to housing through a self-help remodeling effort that included raising the roof and adding additional living space.
