Unforgettable Underdogs Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, volunteer run, 100% foster-based, no-kill dog rescue serving the Wisconsin area. We are dedicated to rescuing the underdogs, those who have found themselves homeless. We strive to help dogs in public high-kill shelters, those that do not do well in shelters, dogs given up or abandoned by their owners or dogs being abused or neglected.

We find loving, responsible, committed permanent homes. An in-depth adoption process is used, which includes taking considerable care in finding perfect matches and educating potential adopters about the responsibilities of bringing a dog, especially their particular dog, into their life.


Featured Dog

tobyToby is a fighter, a fragile pup determined to overcome all the obstacles put in front of him for the first 4 years of his life. When he first arrived to UU he was probably considered feral. He lived his four years of life with 30 other chi’s in a one bedroom apartment, never leaving those four walls. His foster mom couldn’t approach or touch him for over a week without him reacting in fear. His transformation has been incredible, and we’re happy to have been able to give him a chance. It takes a bit of time building trust with some patience & understanding, most often for men. But soon he’ll be flopping over to give him belly rubs like his picture! He will give you lots of love and snuggles once he knows your ‘safe’ (which just requires some time!). He becomes very bonded to you soon enough and then wants to be your best friend. He also loves to play with toys and is learning the adventures of the outdoors. See our available dogs>>
