Underdog Express

 PETS is so proud to partner with Emily’s Legacy Rescue in our local transport program called: Underdog Express. Underdog Express was born in June of 2016 to handle dog transport in the Wichita Falls area. This is all thanks to Flower Mound’s Love on Wheels.

Previously, Underdog Express leaders and volunteers working with Love On Wheels had sent close to 1,500 homeless dogs to upstate New York where they are adopted, often within hours of arriving. 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!

In 2016, 461 dogs found their forever homes in New York because of this life-saving program that frees up space and creates more time for our local dogs.

It costs an average of $170 minimum to vet each dog for transport, and foster families are also needed for each dog for a minimum of two weeks prior to transport. The Underdog Express is one more way we are saving lives in the Falls.
