Rehome a Pet

Each day, Underdog gets calls and emails about taking in pets from community members. There are so many reasons good people can no longer keep their pets in their homes.


Underdog prioritizes taking in pets to our program from overflowing shelters where they don't have anyone to advocate for them. However, we find it important to offer a resource for our community members looking to rehome their beloved pets. Home to Home is a site that helps pets stay out of shelters. It's a unique way for pet parents to directly work with potential adopters to find a new home that is a good match. 

In just a few simple steps, pets can find a loving new home without ever seeing the inside of a shelter. It’s free to use for both guardians and adopters, and gives animals needing a new home the best of both worlds: their current guardian can find the best fit, and their adopter can learn all about their personality and preferences first-hand. It’s a win-win for pets!

Underdog Pet Rescue strives to be a community resource for pet parents in Madison. If you are looking to rehome your pet because you cannot afford food or veterinary care, we may be able to help. You can email our director at with questions or needs, and we will see if there is anything we can do to help. We offer lower cost care at our veterinary clinic for those in need, and also offer free care at monthly events we hold for pet parents experiencing or at risk of homelessness through the Madison chapter of Street Dog Coalition. Find out more about our Street Dog Coalition program here:

We hope for life-long pet guardianship, but we know from many years of experience that life sometimes throws hard curve balls. With compassion being one of our core values, we want to cultivate a judgment-free experience with respect for all.
