Dogs for Adoption

All animals are residing in our foster homes throughout the Twin Cities. Questions regarding the status of your dog application can be directed to Once you submit an adoption application, you can expect a reply within 48 hours (Please note that our staff does not work on Sundays so that may delay processing).

“PENDING ADOPTION” indicates another applicant has already met this dog and will be adopting.
“NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS” indicates we are no longer accepting any additional applications for this dog at this time.

Secondhand Hounds can only adopt out to residents of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, North Dakota and South Dakota.
