Save animals in honor of Megan and Brian! 


We are so excited to support a cause close to our hearts on our wedding day. Megan adopted our dog Murphy from Secondhand Hounds in 2013 and ever since he came into her life he has brought joy, energy, and at times a little chaos.  Brian has fallen in love with Murphy almost as quickly as he did with Megan over our many dog walks around Lake of the Isles. We are still convincing Brian’s dog Jamie that she and Murphy are best friends and should be constantly snuggling each other because on the rare occasion they do, it’s so adorable. 

We are all so excited to start our lives together as a family and are so grateful to Secondhand Hounds for bringing Murphy to us!  Please donate to help other families find their Murphy and help other Murphys find their forever home!

Megan, Brian, Murphy, & Jamie
