Our Mission

We wake up every morning saying YES to connecting people and animals, caring for them, and helping them fill each other’s hearts. 

The Bond Between is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that focuses on the bond between humans and animals. We were founded in 2009 as Secondhand Hounds.  Since then, we have rescued over 29,000 dogs and cats with the help of thousands of fosters, volunteers, and supporters in our community. Our organization has grown from a rescue to a first-in-its-class animal wellbeing organization... now The Bond Between! We continue to provide safe shelter, proper veterinary care, and daily necessities for animals while working hard to help them build a bond with humans. We also focus on supporting the bonds that already exist between people and pets with our pet food shelf, respite foster care program, and focus on social services. 

We wake up every morning saying YES to connecting people and animals, caring for them, and helping them fill each other’s hearts.

 

You can help support us today by donating, fostering, volunteering, or sharing The Bond Between.
