Puppy Parties

We believe that any animal lover, from 1 to 100, should be able to be surrounded by “puppies” on their special day! A puppy party is just that – a party with LITTER-ally puppies or our MUTT-ley crew! Either way, Secondhand Hounds will bring at least 3 puppies or dogs to your business, home, venue, or convention for 90 minutes of play!


Thank you for your support in providing puppy socialization, spreading the word about animal rescue and helping us raise money for our program!
