Underdog Express

PETS is proud to partner with Helping Hounds for our transport program: Underdog Express. Underdog Express was born in June of 2016 to handle transport for dogs who are out of time at shelters in the Wichita Falls area.

Our amazing local volunteers pull these pups from shelters before their time runs out and set them up with incredible volunteer foster families who care for the dogs. When the dogs are ready, they hop on a transport truck bound for Helping Hounds Dog Rescue in Dewitt, New York.

The Underdog Express program has now sent over 1,200 dogs to New York! The average length of stay for dogs is only 9 days! It is not uncommon for a line of eager potential adopters to form outside the rescue on Saturdays after transport arrivals, even in snow and frigid temperatures!

Underdog Express is one more way, thanks to your donations and the volunteers, we are saving lives in the Falls together.

Come visit the P.E.T.S. Facebook page for great stories featuring all of our awesome programs and the incredible volunteers and donors who make them happen!


It costs an average of $170 minimum to vet each dog for transport. You can support Underdog Express with your gifts here.

Foster families are also needed for each dog for a minimum of two weeks prior to transport. Please message us on Facebook or send us an email to [email protected] if you are interested in volunteering and fostering for Underdog Express.
