In case you missed it, QuiBids has two employees – Meike and Jared – who started a rescue organization called The Underdogs where they spend their free time rescuing needy animals around the Oklahoma City area. You may recall a post last month where they were able to save Gunnie, a dog who had been shot and left for dead. Well, now The Underdogs are at it again, and this time they were able to save another dog – Finley – a whole TEN MINUTES before he was scheduled to be put to sleep. We thought this story was just too perfect not to share!
Finley (pictured above) was placed into a local shelter outside of OKC in August. He didn’t have much time, as this was a high volume shelter. Having heard this, the Underdogs stepped in and pulled him a mere ten minutes before he was scheduled to be put down. Superhero dog-saver, Jared, was able to provide a temporary foster home for him until they could find Finley’s forever home.
“We could tell upfront that he was a very sweet pup.” Jared said.
After about three months in foster care, Finley began developing into a great companion dog. He was loving his new lease on life, and quickly became house trained and started learning new manners.
As luck would have it, the Underdogs were able to get in contact with a family from Wichita, KS. They made the 3 hour drive south to meet him, and it didn’t take long for them to realize that Finley was the dog for them.
“It was a bittersweet occasion seeing Finley go off to his new forever home, but we’re very happy that he has a new family that will give him the love he deserves.” – Jared, Co-Founder of The Underdogs
