The mission of Underdog Rescue is to build a kinder, more humane community through animal rescue, adoption and outreach. We help individuals and families find loving companions among pets we have rescued from abandonment, restored to health and evaluated in foster care; and we provide humane education, therapeutic and outreach services to children, senior citizens and the public

Underdog Rescue matches wonderful people with wonderful pets. Our adopters are people who have a special place in their hearts for orphaned, abandoned or neglected dogs. Most of our dogs that overburdened animal control facilities and other shelters don’t have space to hold. Our name, Underdog Rescue, grows out of our passion for the “little guys”–the waifs and strays who’ve had a bit of bad luck but never quit hoping to win someone’s heart and a home. All our “underdogs” have a story. Our goal is to give each one a happy ending.
