We have loved partnering with Subaru for the month of October, Underdog Animal Rescue is a foster based rescue with fosters living all over the Bay Area. We take in dogs from shelters as well as public surrenders when an owner can no longer care for their dog. Many of our dogs come from the rural Central Valley where there are not many rescue resources available. We consider every dog we save an "Underdog", many with very sad stories of being dumped by the people they loved. One dog in particular that was adopted in October was DaVinci. DaVinci was a 4.5 month old puppy found in an orchard abandoned with 6 other dogs that we believe were family members. He and his sister had a severe case of demodex and sat in the shelter for almost 2 months with no adoption or rescue interest. We found an amazing foster to take both dogs in and brought them to the Bay Area at the end of August. We knew we could get them healed and ready for adoption. But, we did not expect for it to take so long for DaVinci to be adopted! In mid October he was still in his foster home with almost no interest. Until his perfect Mom applied and adopted him on October 31st making him the perfect candidate for our love story! We are so happy for DaVinci and the second chance he has at a fabulous life! We are so thankful for the support of Capitol Subaru and their Subaru Loves Pets initiative.
