Something Worth Howling About

Happy Hounds, Happy Homes.

“Yes.” That one little word changes an animal’s entire life. That’s why our cat and dog rescue in Minnesota is here – we can say yes to animals other places can’t. We’re enabling a movement, and it’s those who say yes that make Secondhand Hounds possible.
