WHY BONE APPETIT?
WHO WE ARE
Secondhand Hounds is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal rescue in Minnesota. Founded in July of 2009, our many volunteers have made a positive impact on the lives of many dogs and cats in our community. Our organization provides safe shelter, proper veterinary care and daily necessities for animals at risk, while working hard to find each a permanent, loving home!
THE SECONDHAND HOUNDS MISSION
We Rescue Animals. We Commit to Our Animals through Adoption, Rehabilitation, and Hospice Care. We Inspire Change.
HELP US GIVE MORE SECOND CHANCES
Secondhand Hounds rescues dogs from kill shelters around the Midwest and from owners who can no longer provide care for their dogs. We rescue cats from local shelters and owners who can no longer provide care for their cats. Please help support us today by donating, fostering, or volunteering.
At Secondhand Hounds, we take on the cases no one else can or will. We make sure that animals who are victims of abuse, neglect, bad breeding, or accidents have a chance. A chance to get the veterinary and emotional help they need, and eventually find loving forever homes. Our commitment to these animals comes at a price – we spend over $1,000,000 each year on the veterinary care of our animals. Much of this goes to animals in our Fighter Fund. If they are willing to fight for their lives, then so are we.
We need your financial support to keep saving these beautiful souls! Any donations received for a specific Fighter Fund animal that exceeds the cost of care for that animal will go towards the care and treatment of other Fighter Fund animals.
