How You Can Help


Hearts for Hounds is a 501c3 non-profit organization aimed at saving the lives of dogs in danger of euthanization in rural shelters. We are a foster-based program, meaning each dog is placed in a temporary home where they receive the love and care that they may have never known before.



We focus our attention on rural, southern shelters that are considered "high-kill," meaning dogs are given a time limit before euthanization regardless of health or temperment. Stray dogs, hounds expecially, are an epidemic in the south due to a large hunting community, the absence of spay/neuter education, and a culture viewing dogs as property.
