Frequently Asked questions
Where are you located? McHenry, MS north of Gulfport, MS. We do not have commercial property so we are not open to the public. Any potential adopter wanting to meet our critters will need to have an approved adoption application prior to visiting or having a meeting elsewhere. We will drive 3 hrs to transport an adoptee to an approved adopter.
Who benefits from Underdog Animal Society? The animals we pull away from possible euthanasia and the animals who got a place in a shelter because we made room! We have no employees and no one receives a paycheck.
What happens to the animals you pull from shelters? We find them loving homes or keep them with us in a safe and loving environment.
How do you know that the people adopting these animals are a good match? We do a 2 week temperament test. We will do a home check and also a vet check. Our contract also stipulates that if it doesn't work out between them and their adoptee that they will return him/her to us.
Do you do outside rescue work? (Example: such as getting kittens from trees or puppies out of drainage, etc) If you come across this type of situation the best way to handle it is to not panic. Call your local fire department or animal control - they have far better equipment than UAS does for those types of unfortunate situations.
How can I help? We are ALWAYS looking for donations to help with vetting, fundraisers and more! Please feel free to email us at [email protected]
What kind of animals do you take in from shelters? We take in senior dogs and cats over the age of 10 years old and under 20lbs.
