Underdogs Animal Rescue

We are dedicated to changing the perception of the "underdog" - the forgotten, the misunderstood, the ones that get picked last (or don't get picked at all). We give the longshots the opportunity to beat their odds, confident that they will prove that the underdog is the best dog, every single time.

Mission Statement

The mission of Underdogs Animal Rescue is to create a better future for the Underdogs. We pursue this mission through partnership, advocacy, adoptions, and promotion of responsible pet ownership.

Organization History

Underdogs was founded in 2015 with the goal of helping to save the lives of homeless companion animals who are too often overlooked on account of breed bias, age, medical and behavioral needs, and even color. Our underdogs are saved from overcrowded partner shelters, where they would have otherwise not received a much-deserved second chance. Our adoptable animals are placed in foster homes, which allows us to continue working on socialization and basic training, and to assess best-fit placements for our adopters.

We believe that adoption, education, advocacy, and community partnerships are our best chance at solving the pet overpopulation crisis in our country and beyond. We believe in helping our most in-need animals locally, and are committed to taking in a majority of our animals from Colorado shelter partners.

To date, Underdogs has saved 502 lives and counting. Join us in our work to continue saving more lives!

Testimonials

TAREK, LAUREN & SYDNEY

When Tarek and I initially started doing our research regarding puppy adoptions we quickly became discouraged about the process. Many rescues and adoption agencies felt so cooperate and competitive that we put our search on hold. When a friend recommended Megan Weber and Underdogs Animal Rescue we immediately felt comfortable with the adoption process and the one-on-one attention our puppy search received from the Underdogs staff. And when Megan started sending pictures of an adorable three month old fluff ball, we were doomed to become puppy parents that very day. The Underdogs team helped us find the perfect pup to fit seamlessly into our lives. Sydney hikes, runs with our mountain bikes, loves sleeping in our tiny two person tent with us and overall fits perfectly into the Colorado family package! We have been so lucky to find a dog that makes every day a little better, even if she is chewing on any bra she can get her paws on. We have Underdogs Animal Rescue to thank for helping us make our family a little larger, but much more complete.

A million thank you's to the wonderful staff at Underdogs Animal Rescue!

ELLE & ROSIE

The first time I met Rosie, I cried. She was 5 months old, energetic, and had just arrived to Denver from Kansas City. My husband and I were going to spend a few hours with her to decide if we were going to adopt her from Underdogs Animal Rescue. It took all of 10 seconds for me to decide she was joining our family after she climbed in my lap on the drive home and wouldn't stop licking my face. Like I said, I cried the whole way home and kept asking her, "Are you going to be my dog?" Adopting Rosie was one of the best decisions my husband and I have ever made.
