Rescue. Adopt. Foster. Volunteer. Donate. Educate.



Forever true to "The Underdog", Rural Dog Rescue is dedicated to saving the lives of dogs in shelters who are often overlooked for adoption or rescue.  

We save the dogs who are at most risk of being euthanized:  the hounds, the black dogs, the seniors, the sick and the broken.

We make a commitment to reserve a minimum of 50% of the dogs we save to The Underdog.

We're committed to giving the injured & sick a second chance - can you support us in our $10k vet bill to save Grant, Arby & Melody?

Grant is a young lab mix who's very energetic and a wiggle butt being held back by three fractures in his leg.

Arby is a senior hound mix that is heartworm positive and needs needs surgery for a double laxating patella and torn cruciate ligament.

Melody is a very well behaved senior Shepherd mix who'd be a great family dog after we take care of a torn cruciate ligament.
