About Underdog Rescue of AZ

Underdog Rescue of AZ offers dog and cat adoptions to veterans in Phoenix through its partnership with Pets for Patriots, and will help them find their new best friends. The all-volunteer organization rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes dogs saved from death row, as well as abandoned dogs in need.

As part of its commitment to humane education, Underdog Rescue of AZ emphasizes the importance of spay/neuter to reduce pet overpopulation and the responsibilities of pet ownership. The organization is 100% foster-based; all dogs and cats are cared for in qualified homes where they receive love and socialization to prepare them for permanent adoption. Available animals can be seen by appointment or at the many adoption events the rescue holds at local pet stores and community events.

Underdog Rescue of AZ welcomes monetary donations, as well as in-kind contributions of pet beds, toys, treats and other items; see their complete Amazon.com wish list for details. For a more hands on experience, become one of their valued volunteers or pet fosters.

Adoption Fees Include:

Up-to-date vaccinations
