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.
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!
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.
Did you know that a single female dog, her mate, and their pups can produce over 67,000 offspring in just 6 years? In 2016, it was estimated there were over 250,000 stray dogs and puppies roaming the Navajo Nation. The number is so high because the majority of dogs are unaltered.
The biggest reason these dogs go unaltered is that many Native Americans cannot afford these simple surgeries. Underdog is here to help!
Underdog Rescue and Rehab is committed to addressing affordability and access to spay/neuter surgeries. Each quarter Underdog Rescue aims to host a spay and neuter clinic on the reservation to help with population control. At each clinic, we will alter about 120 dogs and cats. We go to communities that are far from veterinary services with the goal of reducing future unwanted pets.
Underdog Rescue also helps Native communities care for their pets. We frequently receive calls about families feeling overwhelmed by the number of pets they care for and the cost of caring for them. We know the cost of spaying or neutering is less than the cost of feeding a litter of puppies, so the more dogs we can spay and neuter, the more dogs stay in homes that can adequately take care of them without all the unwanted puppies.
For just $40 you can support the spay/neuter, deworming and vaccination of a dog at our quarterly clinics on the reservation. You can prevent car accidents and tragic deaths. You can prevent the spread of diseases. You can help dogs live longer and healthier lives. You can support our "pack".
