puppy parties

Want something pawsitively special for your event? Invite puppies! Secondhand Hounds will bring at least 3 puppies or dogs to your business, home, venue, convention, or Zoom call!

We are currently booking parties a minimum of 8 weeks in advance!


All in-person puppy parties must take place within 30 miles of our Minnetonka office.


Please read on to learn about the two types of Puppy Parties available -- and thank you for your support in providing puppy socialization, spreading the word about animal rescue, and helping us raise money for our program!

option 1:

  • SHH volunteers will bring all supplies to make the party a success: pen, tarps, puppy pads, toys, cleaning supplies and more! The volunteers will answer questions, inform and educate as the occasion requires!

  • 3 or more puppies will party with you! They are usually between 6-8 weeks old, but may be up to one year old. Puppy adoptability is NOT guaranteed.

  • Outdoor parties can only take place when temperatures are between 55-85 degrees for the health of the puppies. Tents or other coverage required for shade or protection from rain.

  • Puppies are never allowed on the ground, indoors or out, for health and safety reasons, so will be inside their pen when not being cuddled. (You won't want to set them down anyway!)

  • Parties last 90 minutes and start at $500

option 2:

  • Outside of our 30 mile radius? Want to liven up a Zoom call, or find a unique way to unite people in different locations? Invite some puppies!

  • A Secondhand Hounds staff member will answer questions about the pups, our  organization and rescue in general. This call can be tailored to your group's needs!

  • Parties last 60 minutes and start at $150.



  • All in-person puppy parties must take place within 30 miles of our Minnetonka office, with limited exceptions. If you live outside of Minnesota, please consider hosting a Virtual Puppy Party!

  • Puppy parties must be booked at least 8 weeks in advance.

  • We do not do birthday parties under age 10. If children under age 10 are present at a non-birthday party event, they must be seated and under direct supervision of a guardian or parent.

  • All parties are subject to approval based on the date availability, age of guests, and how the proposed party environment/location will impact the health and safety needs of the puppies.

  • In-person puppy party duration is 90 minutes. Virtual puppy parties are 60 minutes.

  • While we cannot guarantee the puppies will be adoptable, we can guarantee they will be cute!
