Since 2011 The Underdog Project has been bringing troubled South African teenagers and untrained shelter dogs together for a dual purpose: to engage and empower at-risk teenagers, and to increase the adoption rate of shelter dogs.
Teens train and heal the dogs, and dogs train and heal the teens. It's an almost perfect formula for helping South African kids overcome some of life's most difficult challenges.
But there's one problem: The Underdog Project might not be around next year if we don't help them raise funds to employ a full time social worker/Underdog Superhero. They're crowdfunding their future - and you can help them reach their milestones.
So give at-risk kids the chance to continue their animal assisted therapy with shelter dogs and back the Underdog campaign here:
