The people, governance practices, and partners that make the organization tick.
My name is Cat Suzuki and I am the founder and President of Hounds in Pounds. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for being part of our journey to end the daily killing of thousands of adoptable dogs in the United States. This work has changed my life in unimaginable ways.
Hounds in Pounds is a nonprofit rescue founded in 2015 as a grassroots organization. We expected to save a few dogs. Never in our wildest dreams did we imagine the horrors that we would be facing, the overcrowded shelters where thousands of dogs are being euthanized, the horrific cases of abuse and neglect that we are asked to save, and the heroism of our team of vets and volunteers who give everything they’ve got to save our dogs. We quickly learned that to do this work, we could not sit on the sidelines; we had to throw ourselves in heart and soul, always putting the dogs first.
Now six years later, we have rescued thousands of dogs and have become the voice for the voiceless.
