Rescue. Adopt. Foster. Volunteer. Donate. Educate.
Forever true to "the Underdog," Rural Dog Rescue is dedicated to saving the lives of high risk dogs in economically challenged, high-kill shelters in rural areas — dogs that are often overlooked for adoption or rescue.
We save the dogs that are at most risk of being euthanized: hounds, black dogs, seniors, and the sick or injured. Click above to learn more about each category of our "underdogs" — and why we're committed to rescuing them.
We make a commitment to reserve a minimum of 50% of the dogs we save to "the Underdog."
