Rural Dog Rescue

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 dogsseniors, 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." 

iN ADDITION TO OUR WEEKLY ADOPTION EVENTS Held on Saturdays from 10AM-12PM (June - August) and 12PM - 2PM (September - May) at Howl To The Chief, PLEASE JOIN THE UNDERDOGS AT ONE OF OUR SPECIAL EVENTS!
