why we do it
All of us involved in the founding of UUR believe that dogs can change lives. While every dog we come into contact with makes an impact on us, there has been one dog for each of us who inspired our work with UUR on behalf of other Underdogs. Meet the inspiration behind UUR...the original Underdogs!
Mudge was the dog who taught me that every dog really does have a superpower. His superpower was getting along with other dogs, and helping me see that there was more I could do to help dogs like him. I will forever be grateful for the we time got to spend together. He changed my life.

Peggy Sue is my inspiration. A dog with three legs and half an ear who bounced back to the shelter multiple times before being saved by a rescue. Her superpower is Forgiveness and the ability to love.
