Secondhand Mutts Provides Shelter


We provide shelter for our dogs in loving, committed, foster homes as well as at The Mutt Hutt daycare and boarding facility.

Secondhand Mutts Socializes Their Dogs


Our dogs are socialized in a cage-free daycare environment. This environment provides mental, and physical stimulation allowing our dogs to learn positive behaviors from other balanced dogs and human pack leaders.

Secondhand Mutts Secures Vet Care

Vet Care

Prior to being adopted into a forever home, our dogs receive a full health screen, spay or neuter, vaccinations, heartworm testing, as well as flea and heartworm preventative. We are 100% committed to any dog who arrives needed special veterinary care and treatments.

Secondhand Mutts Finds Forever Homes


We carefully screen all applicants to insure our dogs are adopted into their final forever home. Individuals and families applying for our dogs are interviewed in person and references are checked during the adoption process. Check out our Mutt Match Application for adoptive families.
