Many of our donors and supporters make their gifts in memory or honor of someone they love. We are humbled and grateful to be able to list some of those funds below. We are so fortunate to be a small part of honoring their life and legacy.
Are you interested in starting your own fund benefiting animals and the humans who love them?
Secondhand Hounds would be honored to help. Please email Rachel@secondhandhounds.org to start the creation of your fund.
A scruffy little terrier poodle mix named Oliver was her rescued soul dog and the light of her life, so Amy Rosenthal created The Oliver Fund to honor his legacy. Oliver was the muse for starting Metro Dogs Daycare & Boarding. As a pet therapy team they also brought cheer to nursing home residents and hospital patients. The fund will benefit Secondhand Hounds with a concentration on People & Pets Together and dog hospice care.
Our beloved son Seth was known for his kindness and compassion for all animals and people. He grew up with gerbils, rats, and dogs. So, of course, when he went into the Air Force, he got his own dog. His White German Shepherd Carolina and he were inseparable. Unfortunately, they both were hit hard by terrible cases of tick-borne diseases: Lyme in Seth’s case and Bartonella and meningitis in Carolina’s. Carolina survived; Seth did not. Through Seth’s North Star Fund (Seth’s values live on as our North Star,) the Argetsinger/Friedell family supports many organizations, including Secondhand Hounds.
