Who We Are

Save UnderDogs is an all volunteer group of people who rescue and foster needy dogs, mostly from death row at local shelters. Dogs are kept in our homes for evaluation and are socialized in a home environment. We operate by fundraising and with personal funds, which is why we can only help a few dogs at a time.

Adopting a friend

Because all medical expenses are paid by us and we get no grant money or funding, our adoption fees vary slightly, depending on the medical needs of the pet. Typically it runs $175 to $250 — slightly more for puppies. For purebred dogs the accepted breed-specific adoption fee may apply. There are also some dogs with reduced or no adoption fee. All of our pets are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed, heartworm tested and on heartworm preventative and flea preventative. Thank you for understanding that even these adoptions fees don’t even begin to cover the charges we incur at the vets office…not to mention food, laundry, bedding, toys, leashes, kennels, etc. Our average monthly expenses to operate are over $5,000 (no one gets paid a dime!) and we do around 10 adoptions a month. If you do the math, you will realize this is a labor of LOVE! Thanks!

Location Information

We do not have a physical shelter location for you to visit. Our dogs are in our homes, businesses and wherever we can put them. We work on appointments. We try to limit the hours that we make appointments to allow us to have time with our families. We do not show dogs on Sundays or after 6:00 during the week. Please understand we have no staff and volunteer in addition to having jobs, families and other responsibilities. Please be patient and we will return your email as promptly as possible.
