Dr. Good's Underhound Railroad...Transporting overcrowded shelter animals to places where they'll find forever homes

Meet the Vet Who Rescued 15,000 Pups with His Underhound Railroad

As seen on the Rachel Ray Show on October 6, 2016

Everyone knows Rachael's baby is her pit bull, Isaboo, and that rescuing dogs is near and dear to her heart. Enter Dr. Michael Good of The Homeless Pets Foundation in Marietta, Georgia. He's made it his life's mission to rescue over 15,000 forgotten animals with his "Underhound Railroad," and he's just getting started.

More dogs were coming into Dr. Good's shelter than going out, so he created the Underhound Railroad to help dogs in the south who are about to be put down find loving homes in the northeast. "The dogs that get on my Underhound Railroad come from puppy mills, dog fighting, I find them driving home down the street and we take them," says Dr. Good. "This is the solution right now because so many dogs can be helped quickly."

As a thank you, and to help Dr. Good with expenses, Rachael's Rescue gifted him with $25,000! His reaction? Priceless! Check out the video to see it.


The Story of Underhound Railroad

Overpopulation in Southern pet shelters leads to life-threatening scenarios for adoptable dogs and cats, while shelters in the Midwest and Northeast struggle to find the pets wanted by their clients. That's why we created the Underhound Railroad program. We find pets that are nearing the end of their time at local shelters and match them with shelters in the Midwest and Northeast where demand is higher. These pets are then taken to no-kill shelters or matched with families who will give them loving homes

Not only do we transport these pets, we provide them with veterinary care to ensure they're healthy, ready to travel, and join their new families once they arrive.
