THANK YOU everyone for your generous donations! We can't save lives without you. Check back soon for an update on the 2024 Giving Challenge.


The work never ends! In the last few minutes of the Giving Challenge UnderDog Rescue picked up these sweet babies at the shelter. They need fosters! Please complete a foster application if you can help.

 

The December rescue of 53 dogs from a hoarding case has been keeping us VERY busy!

Some have already been vaccinated, spay/neutered and adopted by their furr-ever family

One came with hidden surprise: she birthed 3 puppies!

Others required more extensive medical care and are still in their foster homes awaiting further diagnostic testing, medication treatment, and additional surgeries

LEO THE LION-HEARTED survived being kept in a crate, under a tarp, in a backyard. 

The crate was SO SMALL that he could not stand up, lie down or turn around for his entire life!

Due to this abuse and neglect, he now has joint malformations in his rear legs. LEO requires two separate leg surgeries that (even discounted by half) will be $4,000-$5,000.  

This is why all generous donations during the Giving Challenge on April 9 & 10 help us continue to do our lifesaving work!


QUEENIE came to us after being given up by a hoarder. She had lived her entire life outside.

When she went in for her spay surgery, we decided to do an X-ray to see what was that bump on her back. Turns out she was pregnant - with ONE puppy. For her tiny size it’s a BIG puppy.

We cancelled her spay surgery and she had a girl.

QUEENIE deserves a long and happy life as the “Queenie” of her castle!


Money raised through The Giving Challenge helps pay for surgeries like Leo's and Queenie's, spay & neuter surgeries, vaccinations, microchips, food, toys, X-rays, dentals, grooming and a wide variety of medications such as monthly heartworm prevention.

 

As always, THANK YOU for your love and support throughout the years! We appreciate you!
