Say “Yes” to Second Chances
At Secondhand Hounds, donations are essential to our continued ability to save more dogs and cats and take on cases that others cannot afford such as extensive surgery, hospice care, and prolonged therapy.

Sponsor A Rescue Animal
Many people are not in a position to foster a dog/cat, but would still like to help! A great way to do this is to sponsor a dog or cat with Secondhand Hounds.
Donation In Honor/Memory Of
If you would like to make a donation in honor of or in memory of someone (human or animal), your donation will assist us in continuing our mission. A handwritten card recognizing your donation will be sent to the person/honoree from us on your behalf, and you will receive a separate acknowledgement of your gift via email or letter.
Please be sure to include the details of the donation and contact information for the honoree/recipient in the “Add a Note” field in PayPal. This field is located in between where the amount being donated and your address are listed.
This program allows all of our donors an opportunity to set up a recurring gift that will benefit the rescue. And best of all, you can join for as little as $5 per month. Our Sustaining Member Program can be a gift from you, or you can join as a way to honor someone else.
Did you know that many companies offer the option to have your donated money or volunteer hours matched? This means you can double your impact! Check with your employer to see if there is an existing program available to you.
