Mission

We are a rural non profit organization. We operate solely based on volunteers, donations, and we are foster based. We are, as of Dec 10th 2018 a 501(c)3 Non profit organization. Our goal is to help animals as we are able to! Many who feel unwanted, unloved, forgotten, abused, neglected will know what love is! We pull dogs and kittens from our local shelter who are about to be put to sleep. We advise and help in our community to get animals spayed and neutered, when otherwise they could not afford to do so. We are the voices of the Misfitz n Underdogz, that is our mission and quest!

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Helping the community get animals spayed / neutered when they can not afford to do it themselves. We are trying to educate the public on how important spay/neuter is for the over population problem. Getting animals out of our local high kill shelter, getting them vetted and into foster homes until a loving family is approved through our adoption process and they can find their forever homes. Our goal is to rescue as many animals from our shelter as humanly possible and into loving homes. We also help animals with injuries, health / genetic defects or heartworm positive. These are all factors that seem to affect their adoptability. We make sure that any testing, medication, vetting, health issues are addressed and taken care of to the best of our ability, giving the dog or cat a better chance at being adopted. We have adoption events every month, taking the dogs out to meet the public and interact for socialization. If training is needed they receive that as well.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to rescue as many animals from our shelter or strays as humanly possible and into loving homes.
Educating and helping the public to properly care for their animals, understanding that spayed and neutered
animals will cut down on our over population problems.
To ensure that less animals are going into the animal shelter, risking being put to sleep.
There are more animas than there are homes for them to go to.
Our ultimate goal is that there would be no need for rescues for animals.

Adoption events to educate the public, get animals adopted and at least into foster homes.
Educating the public seems to be the major root of the problem.
We hold fundraisers, benefits and posting on social media every day about the importance
of controlling the overpopulation problem in our communities.
Helping people to get their animals spayed / neutered.

Posting on social media, fundraisers, benefits, adoption events and going out into
the public sectors talking to people.
We have a good following and do our best to educate people.
We raise the funds to help people get their animals spayed or neutered.
We also try to help people place their animals in new homes, to help prevent
them from being taken to our local high kill shelter.

Spaying and neutering many animals. Between the end of 2018 until now August 4th of 2019, we have pulled 51 animals from our local shelter, so they would not be put to sleep. We've found fosters, adopters and loving homes for approximately 42 of them.
We've rescued approximately over 18 dogs and cats just since the beginning of this year.
We also help the shelter place animals through social media to save their lives.


Next, we would like to address the issue of back yard breeders, breed specific legislation that discriminates against certain breeds.
They are all individuals and it's been proven that breed has nothing to do with temperament.
We would also like to make sure we are able to rescue more animals, get them the vet care they need and into loving homes.
It never ends, there are more animals needing homes, than there are homes for them to go to.
We hope to drastically reduce the overwhelming number of animals going into the shelter system.
