Rachel Mairose, Executive Director of Secondhand Hounds, has something to be excited about. A brand new facility for their organization and with it, the opportunity to help even more animals. A 501c3 nonprofit animal rescue based in Eden Prairie, MN, that started in July of 2009. Since its beginning, this foster-based program has helped over 9,300 animals and counting. In fact, they place about 2,500 animals every year in forever homes.
