 Because "senior" does NOT mean "broken" 

Due to a bunch of adoptions recently we are short on critters to adopt at the moment!  We typically have 10-15 adoptables at least.  This is not a bad thing but either check back later or email us with what type of pet you are looking for and we may be able to point you in the right direction.  [email protected]

This list is not updated daily.  Please email us or message us on facebook for a current list of those we currently have available for adoption.
We will transport up to 3 hrs from Gulfport, MS for approved adopters - please email us at [email protected] for an adoption application

Petey - rat terrier mix -  Petey has only had one owner who passed away.  He is 11 years young and loves to play fetch. He also loves to snuggle and sleep with you in bed.  He is up to date on all vaccines, heartworm negative, weighs about 15-20lbs and neutered.  He does take phenobarbital for seizure control - he does NOT have seizures when on this medication that we have seen.  This med will cost around $20/month.  Petey does well with people and dogs but not cats.  Petey does not being yelled at and will show his teeth when this is done, so sweet talking works best for him.  Due to this we would suggest no small children.  Petey is house-trained.  He would not do well in an apartment setting as he barks for a couple minutes after his person leaves but then settles down.  He wants to be with his person!  His adoption fee is $50 to approved adopters and comes with a month of anti-seizure meds so you have time to set up with your veterinarian to get a prescription.

SPECIAL NEEDS:  Patches, chihuahua/terrier mix, 10-15lbs.  Patches is a sweet and submissive boy who wants nothing more than to snuggle with you.  He is around 4 years old.  Patches is up to date on vaccinations and heartworm negative.  Patches is crate trained and working on pee pad training.  He takes no medications.  He is good with people, dogs and probably cats.  His adoption fee is $50 to an approved adopter.

He is a VERY timid boy and will need someone with patience and compassion.  He will need work with potty training.  Belly bands with panty liners tucked inside are awesome for keeping males from peeing in your house.  He is terrified of men and children.  He is not good with small submissive or "weak" dogs or cats - when he builds his confidence he will attack them.  His perfect home would be with a female with no other pets or larger non-submissive dogs who is capable of helping him through patience and care.  We will transport up to 1 hr from Gulfport, MS for Patches.

Lil Petey, wire haired terrier mix (yes we have 2 Petey's haha).  He is almost 8 years young and takes no medications.   He weighs 10-15lbs.  He is crate trained.  He is very very sweet and wants to be in your lap.  He is allergic to fleas so will need to be kept flea free.  He is heartworm negative.  He will need work with potty training.  Belly bands with panty liners tucked inside are awesome for keeping males from peeing in your house.

Thank you so very much for considering to adopt and especially for entertaining the idea of adopting a senior or handi-capable dog or cat - you are already amazing in our book!

  

Please email [email protected] for an adoption application.

Meeting and potential adopting will be considered after we have received your filled out application and gone over everything to ensure that this would be a good thing for you and the pet you're interested in (some aren't good with kids or cats, have certain medical requirements, etc), have spoken to your current or past veterinarian to ensure that you are a good and responsible pet owner.  This process all typically takes a day or two at the most. 

 

If all is well then we will schedule a meet and greet with the pet of your choosing.  If that meeting goes well for both of you then you get to bring home your new best friend!  We ask that you allow 2 weeks with your new best friend to determine if this is the best match for you. Due to nerves and previous experiences they may not make the best first impressions but are trying their best.


Adoption Fees:  Typically adoption fees will vary depending on medical expenses that were incurred at their arrival but are usually no more than $100

*****ALL ADOPTIONS ARE BY APPROVAL OF UNDERDOG ANIMAL SOCIETY - WE WANT THE BEST POSSIBLE HOME FOR THESE ANIMALS WHO HAVE ALREADY BEEN THROUGH SO MUCH.  IF YOU ARE NOT SELECTED AFTER APPLYING THAT DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING ABOUT YOU - WE VERY CAREFULLY PICK OUT WHO WOULD BE BEST BASED ON A LONG LIST OF WHAT EACH INDIVIDUAL CAT OR DOG NEEDS BASED ON THEIR MEDICAL, PERSONALITY, ETC NEEDS****

Please note that if your current/past pets were not up to date on heartworm prevention or if you do not have a fenced in yard (for dogs) you will be declined an adoption.  While you may be an excellent pet owner and have no need for a fenced in yard we have run into too many irresponsible pet owners that allow their pets to free roam, etc and the outcomes have been unfortunate.  Due to this we no longer allow any dog adoptions to homes without fenced in yards unless you are an apartment/condo dweller.  Thank you for your understanding. 

Underdog Animal Society has the right to decline any adoption for any reason and without explanation. 

Sanctuary seniors! - not available for adoption due to health/behavioral issues but will live out their life with Underdog Animal Society - donations in their honor are greatly appreciated!

Elsa is 9 yrs young - she has some severe heart conditions and anxiety that have her taking seven pills per day.  Elsa is a very sweet girl!  Unfortunately due to her heart problems and separation anxiety her medications cost $122/month.  

You could donate on her behalf via PayPal to [email protected] or by going to the home page of this site and clicking on "donate".

Stoche (pronounced Stosh with a hard "o") is about 10 years old and he came in with Precious from the same place- he has a formerly broken jaw and hematoma in his ear that gives him no problems.  His hind legs were also slightly malformed and he is sometimes cautious about his lower back.  Stoche is very sweet and will stalk you where ever you go.   If you would like to donate on his behalf you can via PayPal to [email protected] or this website has a donation link you can use.  All donations are tax deductible as we are a recognized non profit.

Precious is 11ish years young and unfortunately spent most of that time stuck in a very small cage in a puppy mill being bred by force - she was bred so many times that her estrogen levels are permanently raised leading to blood cell issues and anemia.  She is hand fearful which is indicative of abuse.  She has hind leg problems from being kept in tiny cages.
She is very quickly responding to a kind hand though and showing her amazingly funny and sweet side! Due to being a bit "bitey" she is not available for adoption but you can donate to her via PayPal to [email protected] or through this website.

Lucy, 8 yrs young.  Has PTSD issues from a horrid past that I won't mention here so she is not available for adoption due to some rage-style issues that have never led to one single bite but we would rather her to stay with us where we know her triggers.  You can donate to her care by going to the home page at this website or via PayPal to [email protected]
