Secondhand Hounds is thrilled to announce a brand-new way of approaching animal wellness coming to the Twin Cities this fall, thanks to the incredible generosity of Chuck & Don’s stores.

After People & Pets Together, the Twin Cities’ first pet food shelf, joined the Secondhand Hounds family this past spring, it became clear that providing pet food and supplies to families facing economic hardship was only part of this puzzle. By providing more comprehensive services, such as grooming, veterinary care, and training, Secondhand Hounds could help animals stay with the families that love them, which would allow rescues to concentrate on truly homeless animals.

Without the support of Chuck & Don’s, creator of the 5 Pillars of Pet Wellness, this dream could have never become a reality. Luckily, this venture fits perfectly with Chuck & Don’s mission of providing holistic pet wellness to every animal. The Chuck & Don’s Pet Wellness Center, a center committed to maintaining the pet/human bond, will be opening this fall in Minneapolis.
