Hounds Helping Harvey

We at Secondhand Hounds are saddened by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. We have established long-term relationships with shelter partners in Texas where we are focusing our efforts. These partners have shared with us their needs in the short and long term, and we hope to gather support from here in Minnesota to help in different ways.


Watch an update from our Executive Director about our plan to help.


Please know, the animals we will be saving from Texas are NOT displaced from the storms. These are animals that were in the shelter before the storm and we are going to bring them to SHH to make room for other animals in the area needing a place to go. Once stray holds are up, we will start to bring unclaimed animals to Minnesota.


Update 9/15: We are only accepting donations of food for puppies/dogs and cats/kittens at this time. We have brought down multiple van loads full of donations and our partners need some time to get through everything delivered so far. Thank you for your support! If you have other items to donate, please work with Grey Face Rescue on their donation drive!


For anyone in the area looking for their lost pet, please download this app! If you find an animal, see an animal needing rescue, or want to help people looking for their pets, this is a great resource!
