Underdog of the Week — Dexter

Dexter - Available at Operation Kindness

Meet Dexter

A little Maltese mix with a sweet, happy and gentle disposition, this handsome guy lost his home as a part of the West, Texas plant explosion. Dexter has a very manageable medical condition that requires daily medication. It costs about sixty cents a day.

Won’t you give Dexter a much needed chance? He is available for adoption through Operation Kindness.

Dog Of The Week – Daphne

DaphneMeet Daphne!

Unfortunately, as happens occasionally, I was adopted and returned. Sometimes you just have to try on a few families before you find the right fit. My picture says it all…beautiful redhead with a happy-go-lucky personality who will do anything for a bully stick. Also, I’m quite social and OK with cats. Just no kids under 16. You’ll even find I bond very quickly to my human and love to lay my head on your lap while you watch TV.

Hooray For The Underdog!

Thank you for supporting our efforts to champion Underdogs everywhere.

Joe and I began our love affair with Underdogs many years ago when we shot some black and white photographs of shelter dogs, hoping to raise money for animal welfare, and maybe even get the dogs adopted.

We wanted to do something to let the world know that these dogs were just as good, sometimes even better than their pick-of-the-litter counterparts. Our idea was to use our time and talent to illustrate their indomitable spirit – in spite of the fact that no one wanted them. From these humble beginnings, Hooray For The Underdog! was born.

We hope these images will inspire you as they have inspired us…that the stories of loss and recovery will move you…and that you may know the joy of sharing your life with an Underdog, too.
