Adopt an Underdog

Underdogs are dogs that have started out life on the wrong paw. They’ve been abandoned, abused and neglected. Some have spent their lives on the streets with nowhere to call home. Some once had a place to call home until tragedy left them alone. Some are born in shelters. Every day underdogs spend their beautiful lives behind bars with little hope of ever getting out. The Underdog Project selects these special dogs to join our programme and teaches them a few important skills that could help them to get adopted.

Email or contact our partner shelter DARG on 021 790 0383, if you are interested in adopting any of the dogs below.

Some of our Underdogs currently looking for homes:


A sweet and clever boy with tons of energy! He has mastered all of the basic skills and adores being given treats.



She is a gentle and affectionate girl who will make a wonderful companion for any family.



He is a rambunctious boy who loves cuddles and fetching tennis balls. He needs a family who would give him snuggles and loads of walks.



He is an adorable boy with loads of energy and love to give. He’s looking for a wonderful and energetic family to take him home!
