secondhand hounds :: october rescue of the month

Look at me, blogging the Rescue of the Month on the actual FIRST of the month!  :)

For October, we’re featuring Secondhand Hounds, one of my faves. (although I do have a lot of faves) They’ve only been around for a year, but they’ve already found homes for 445 animals. And the fabulous Rachel has done it all while either being super pregnant or caring for her new daughter. She’s seriously a rockstar. Secondhand Hounds is all foster-based, and they’re always on the lookout for more foster families. Fostering is free for you; the rescue supplies everything the animal will need, you get them ready for their new homes with basic training, socialization and lots of love. You can read more about becoming a foster here.

I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Murphy and Lucy this morning, and ohmygod. Snuggly sweethearts.

Murphy is an APBT (American Pit Bull Terrier) about 12 weeks old, and such a good boy. He knows sit, but has so much puppy excitement, he starts to scoot toward you and wiggle while he’s doing it. UH-dorable. You can learn more about Murphy here.

Lucy is a sweet little Shepherd mix from Red Lake. She LOVES treats and toys and being everyone’s best friend. Please contact Secondhand Hounds for more information on her and her siblings.
