Love knows no borders.

At Secondhand Hounds, our passion lies in rescuing animals that would not have a chance without our help. We rescue thousands of dogs each year – locally, as well as from other states throughout the country. We receive requests from all over the world for animals needing rescue, so we made the International Program to support these unique needs. There continues to be a dire need for support outside of the United States.


So far, we have rescued dogs from the meat market trade in Beijing, victims of natural disasters in Puerto Rico, and street dogs from Mexico that were all in critical need of medical care and forever, loving homes. We believe that each life is valuable and worth saving – no matter where they are.

We formalized our international program in the hopes that we can make a bigger impact globally. We do not use general donation funds for our efforts to rescue these animals – we rely upon direct fundraising and program-specific sponsorship, so the cost to Secondhand Hounds is similar to that of any other animal we save.

We invite you to join us in helping animals across the globe.
