A Thomaston, ME 04861 rescue helping to find loving homes for dogs.
1 - 20 of 24 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
We serve all of the eastern seaboard. We rescue from shelters, help lost dogs and accept owner surrenders. We rescue in GA, SC, NC, RI, NY, ME, UT, CT. The dogs are primarily located in foster homes in SC, NC, RI, CT and ME and CT. Please ask for more info.
To apply to adopt one of our rescue dogs, please fill out an adoption application via our website: www.underhoundrailroad.org
Once we receive your application, a volunteer will reach out to discuss if the dog you have applied for is a good for your home & lifestyle.
If your application is initially approved we will ask to to a short, virtual home visit. This is easy, and takes about 10 minutes.
A phone will be completed independent of/or during your virtual home visit. This is a good time to ask all the questions you may have!
We will conduct a virtual meet and greet or a meet and greet in person with your dog, depending on locations.
When you have been approved to adopt and you have decided to take your dog home, we will send you an adoption contract.
You may pay your fee online via our website, PayPal or by bank check. Personal checks will not be accepted.
Underhound Railroad was formed in 2009 by a group of friends, with the goal of rescuing innocent dogs from death row in Connecticut shelters. Underhound Railroad has now grown to include rescue communities in Maine, Connecticut, Rhode Island, North Carolina, South Carolina and Utah.
With our focus on rural areas where shelters are overflowing with abandoned dogs waiting to find rescue, our network of Underhound volunteers work hard to prevent undeserved deaths, see that medical, emotional and behavioral needs are tended to, and transportation as well as a loving foster family are provided to the pups on their journey to finding their forever homes!
We are a foster based rescue, only. We do not have a physical facility. Once your application has been approved, we will work with you to set up a meet and greet with your potential pet.
