Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

UnderDogs has been operating for over nine years. We take animals that are out of time at local kill shelters, or animals with special issues or needs.....we have found homes for blind dogs, deaf dogs, handicapped dogs, old dogs, the list goes on and on. Of course, some of our pets have no problems, they were just unlucky enough to be taken to a kill shelter that has no space. And some of our pets are dropped off to us by owners who were not commited to a lifelong responsiblity when they got the pet. But all that said, we have found forever homes for over 1000 pets and the joy and happiness that comes from helping these furry faces is beyond words!

About Our Rescue Group:

Basically, UnderDogs is run by just one woman who devotes her life to animals. We have a few volunteers and a handful of foster homes. Please be patient if you are contacting us....we have no staff. The animal care is very time consuming and sometimes there are not enough hours in the day. If you have ever saved a life and known the incredible joy that fills your heart, you know why we do this. It is the best feeling in the world.

Come Meet our Pets:

Our pets are in foster homes, at our places of employment, our homes, whereever we can find a spot. So meeting a pet requires an appointment and some coordinating on our part. It is worth the extra effort. Dogs that get to spend time with a family rather than in a cage at a kennel are much more well adjusted.

Our Adoption Process:

We do have an adoption application, contract and certain requirements to adopt. However, we do take each and every adoption on an individual basis and try to make our decision based on what is best for the animal.
There is an adoption fee to help with our vet expenses, and it will vary from pet to pet. We recieve NO funding from any source other than our own pockets, so obviously we could not continue to do this if we do not get at least partial reimbursement for the money we spend on care. No one associated with our rescue recieves ANY money for their time and efforts. No one is paid and we do this for the love of animals.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
