An important message about Covid-19

Secondhand Hounds is committed to continuing to keep our program afloat and to keep saving the lives of animals for years to come. Also, it is worth noting that our organization is considered an essential business, but that does not change our commitment to keep people healthy. 

Rules for Meet & Greets AND Animal Pick Up:

  • Meet and greets MUST be held outside

  • You must use a 6+ foot leash

  • DO NOT touch, shake hands, or be within 6 feet of the applicant for any reason

  • We urge you to wear gloves

  • Face masks, even if homemade, are recommended for both applicants and adopters, but please keep in mind that wearing a mask does not mean you can go within 6 feet of an applicant. Social distancing is more effective than masks and a non-negotiable.

  • After the meet and greet, wash your hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds, or use hand sanitizer if washing hands is not feasible

  • When you get home, wash your hands and we also recommend washing your foster dogs, his/her collar and leash

Thank you for taking this situation seriously. We have 2 objectives: helping slow the curve while continuing to rescue animals. Thank you for helping us achieve these goals.
