About Our Rescue Group:

Cleveland Underdog to the Rescue!
Formerly as volunteers for the South Euclid Humane Society (SEHS) we rescued, nursed to health, spayed/neutered and found loving homes for many dogs since 2002. Now, those same volunteers have formed our own rescue group for dogs. As Cleveland Underdog Rescue, we will continue to care for the lost, abused and abandoned dogs of South Euclid, Richmond Heights and University Heights, but under a new name. The all-volunteer group is comprised of: Connie Karlowicz, owner of DogTopia Daycare for Dogs (Cleveland Hts. Ohio), which has fostered countless SEHS dogs. Laura Bruck and Debby Martens ( fosters as well ) in addition, we have a dedicated group of a volunteers who continue their work with dog fostering and adoptions. Visit us at:

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.
