Underdogs Rock! Rescue

Portland, OR

Our Mission

On a mission to pair up the right dogs with the right families.

While timing does play a part, Underdog is not a first come first serve rescue placement. Priority is placed on whether a home is the best fit for a specific Underdog and whether a particular Underdog is the best fit for an adopter. A matchmaking process.

URR is an all volunteer 501c3 organization that works directly with rescue groups in Southern California and Alabama to give dogs in need of rescue a new chance. Underdog works directly with fosters as we are not a shelter based Rescue. Because our dogs are in foster homes we get to know the dog’s personalities and needs. As we know the dogs well and how they do in a home environment, we do a great job in matching families with the right dog, and the right family for the dog!
