I’m so sad to report that a Secondhand Hounds volunteer/foster’s home burned down early this morning. They were currently fostering another Secondhand Hounds dog, which made it out ok. They lost everything. The entire house is destroyed, she is in the hospital, and her dog, Mia, died in the fire. You might remember sweet Mia from earlier this fall, the beautiful Rottweiler that I photographed as a surprise for her. Mia was a Secondhand Hound herself, and was very well loved by her forever family. I’ll always remember her gentle spirit.
If you’d like to help these wonderful people, Secondhand Hounds has set up an account to take donations, which you can find here. I’ll be donating the fees I received for Mia’s session, and if you’re able to give, please do. Another volunteer is accepting non-monetary donations on their behalf. If you can give food, clothing, etc, please contact Brittany Howard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
**Update: You can also bring donations this Saturday to the Pet Smart in Eden Prairie during their adoption event from 11am-2pm.
