Underhound Railroad was formed in 2009 by a group of friends, with a mission of rescuing innocent dogs from death row in Connecticut shelters. Underhound now tries to helps wherever possible, whenever possible. This involves working with local shelters, but mostly focusing our help in other parts of the country where shelters are overcrowded, and the killing of adoptable dogs is prevalent. Through a network of volunteers, an undeserved death is prevented, medical needs are tended to, and transportation, as well as a loving foster family are provided to the pups on their journey to finding their forever homes!
As a non-profit organization, running solely on volunteers, Underhound Railroad does not have a facility. Our pups are with foster families located throughout New England. We LOVE setting up meetings between our pups and approved applicants! Should you be interested in one our pups, please click Contact this Organization, and you can request an application to get the meeting process started! Fully approved adopters have an approved application, as well as vet references, and a home visit. Underhound Railroad frequently has Meet and Greet events around the Midcoast Maine area, be sure to check out, and stay up to date on our Facebook events!
Volunteers are essential to our rescue. Underhound Railroad is always in need of foster homes (the more homes we have, the more dogs we can save from death row). We provide everything, including a large support network, that is needed to foster a pup to our families, and just ask for a commitment of love, and a little bit of time. We also are always looking to add to our network of transport volunteers.
