Underhound Railroad: Saving Lives, One Shelter Dog at a Time

We are happy to welcome back a rescue that has been at Spring Fling before: Underhound Railroad.

Underhound Railroad initially started in 2009 in Connecticut. Their goal was to save death-row dogs in the local shelters, and they have now grown to include rescue communities in Maine, Connecticut, Rhode Island, North Carolina, South Carolina and Utah. They focus on rural areas, where the need is greatest, and the dogs are in most danger.

“Underhound Railroad is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) volunteer-based animal welfare organization dedicated to rescuing homeless dogs from overcrowded shelters. By working with a network of volunteer advocates, foster caregivers, local veterinarians, trainers and shelters, Underhound is able to rescue hundreds of animals every year. We provide these animals with care and temporary homes until we can place them into their permanent homes. We believe that no animal should be mistreated and are working towards the day when no companion animal is euthanized for lack of a home.”

The vision of Underhound Railroad:

Underhound Railroad tirelessly envisions the day where every adoptable dog has a loving, devoted, and responsible home. A home where they will not suffer from abuse, neglect, or ignorance.

Read more about this vision, more about Underhound Railroad, and their adoptable dogs on their website. Follow them on their social media channels too: Facebook and Instagram.
