Underdog Rescue Programs


Sleepover program!

Looking to spend the weekend with a four legged friend, but not ready for the commitment of owning a dog? We totally understand. Underdog Rescue offers "weekend" sleepovers! This program gives you the opportunity to check out a dog from the Rescue Ranch, and give them a weekend away.  We started this program because we know how much our animals benefit from socialization in a  more relaxed setting away from the sometimes intense shelter environment.  You're more than welcome to take your buddy out to the lake, hiking, camping, home to snuggle on the couch, or out on the town for an ice cream cone! Just head to "our forms" on the menu above and fill out a foster application. One of our staff will be in touch as soon as possible. 

Foster Program!

Fostering an animal from Underdog Rescue is an extremely rewarding experience. Some of the animals we bring in to our rescue are lacking the skills they need to become adoptable. You can help by bringing an animal in to your home and showing them how wonderful life can really be! Whether you want to foster for 1 week, 1 month, or longer, we can help pair you with an animal in need of your loving heart and home. Underdog Rescue will provide all food, medicine, supplies (crate, puppy pen, blankets, etc), veterinary care, and ongoing support during your foster period. Just click on "our forms" on the menu above to fill out a foster application, a member of our staff will be in touch with you as soon as possible!

Volunteer program!

If you're not ready to foster or adopt, volunteering is a great way to get your fill of puppy love! Underdog Rescue relies on the kindness of volunteers like you to help take care of our day-to-day tasks. From walking dogs, bathing puppies, attending adoption events, posting flyers around town, and more, we always have something we need help with. If you need community service hours, Underdog is able to help with that as well. Just fill out an application and our Volunteer Coordinator will be in touch as soon as possible.


Sponsor a kennel

Help an animal in need

Underdog Rescue created our "Sponsor a Kennel" program to directly put your donation into the paws of our animals. We understand that not everyone has the ability to adopt, foster, or volunteer for our rescue, but that most people want to do something to save the lives of animals. Many people like to donate in the name of a loved one they have lost, or a pet that has crossed the rainbow bridge. Your donation will help provide lifesaving medical care, vaccines, food, warm bedding, life enrichment, spay and neuter, and more to an animal in need at Underdog Rescue. 

Benefits of our sponsor program:

  • Your name on our kennel card: When adopters, staff, and volunteers walk by that particular kennel, they get to see your name on the kennel card and know that the animal inside is being helped by your generosity. You may also donate in memory of an animal or loved one, or in honor of an animal or loved one. These options are available on the sponsorship application.

  • Certificate of sponsorship: We are happy to send you a certificate of sponsorship with your name, or your businesses name for you to hang up and let others know that you help to save lives of those who need it most.

  • Animal information: We will send you information and updates regarding the animal in your selected kennel. Their name, rescue story, location they were rescued from, medical updates and more! Underdog Rescue is more than happy to share photos and videos of that particular animal, and show you what a difference your generous donation is making.

  • Happily ever afters: When your sponsored animal has found their forever family, we will share their love story and adoption photo with you.  We will also tell the adopter about the amazing contribution you made that helped the animal have the best possible outcome, a warm and loving home.
