Help Those Who Can’t Help Themselves
Donate to Our Fighter Fund

At Secondhand Hounds, we take on the cases no one else can or will. We make sure that animals who are victims of abuse, neglect, bad breeding, or accidents have a chance. A chance to get the veterinary and emotional help they need, and eventually find loving forever homes.

Our commitment to these animals comes at a price – we spend well over $800,000 each year on the veterinary care of our animals. Much of this goes to animals in our Fighter Fund. If they are willing to fight for their lives, then so are we.

We need your financial support to keep saving these beautiful souls!
