carolinashm_bodyADOPTED! October 20, 2016

Carolina is a 2-3 year old medium size Hound mix. She is 40# and fully grown. She was pulled from a shelter in Springfield, Missouri after she ended up on a euthanasia list with 18 other dogs. A partner rescue we work with arranged to add her to their transport so that her life could be spared and she could become part of the Secondhand Mutts family.

Carolina spent a night in a foster home awaiting her trip east and she did remarkably well with dogs, people and kids that were in the home. She has transitioned well into our social daycare setting. Carolina is a great dog for a family seeking a medium sized, short-haired dog. We do not know her back story of how she ended up in the shelter in Missouri and frankly she’s off to new beginnings and we put dogs pasts behind them when they arrive.

Carolina is up to date on shots and spayed.

fosterhomeCarolina will be moved to a foster home so we can learn more about her in a home setting. She is eligible for foster-to-adopt to anyone that applies and is approved as a match for her. If you are interested in fostering Carolina please email us at

We are not a traditional shelter, we are a cage-free facility. All dogs are temperament tested and must get along with other dogs to stay here. Appointments must be made in advance to meet our Secondhand Mutts. Please call 216-664-9660 or email to set up a time. We are closed on Sundays. We prefer to adopt to local families but will consider long distance adoptions.
