Because "senior" does NOT mean "broken" 

Lil Petey, wire haired terrier mix (yes we have 2 Petey's haha).  He is almost 9 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 heartworm negative.  He is good with people and polite dogs.  NOT good with cats.  LOVES to snuggle and LOVES soft toys.  Very patient boy will wait forever for you to tell him he can sit with you after you are done eating.

  He will need work with potty training due to marking.  Belly bands with panty liners tucked inside are awesome for keeping males from peeing in your house.  Adoption fee is $50 to approved adopter.

Petey - rat terrier mix -  Petey has only had one owner who passed away.  He is 12 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 like being yelled at and will show his teeth when this is done and if pushed he will bite your hand, so sweet talking works best for him.  Due to this we no kids under 12 please.  Petey is house-trained.  He loves to drench his person with kisses and takes treats gently.  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.

Honey Bunny is about 9 yrs old or so.  She is still in recovery for neglect and medical issues from that neglect but she hopes to be very adoptable soon!  She is super sweet yet very awkward from not knowing much kindness. She is currently growing her fur back from extreme skin issues due to the neglect so she will be even prettier soon.  She is heartworm negative and friendly.  Good with cats, dogs and people.  Adoption fee will be $50 to an approved adopter.

She is horribly allergic to grass and should not be allowed outside except to potty.  Pee pads inside for her to use would be more preferable.  She literally scratches her skin off after being outside so this is not something you should take lightly.   We are still trying to find a medication that will work for her.

Honey Bunny hardly ever makes a peep and loves to sit in her persons lap or on their chest while watching tv.  Very easy to get along with.

Minnie was found wandering the streets of Long Beach, MS and her owner could not be located. She does not seem to be abused or neglected but the shelters were full so we took her in.  She is an absolute doll.  Adoption fee of $50 to approved adopter.

pros:  house trained, spayed, UTD on all vaccinations, heartworm negative, doesn't bark much, loves to wag her tail, easy going, gets along with all

cons:  has funky teeth so could use a dental, has a bit of a collapsed trachea and hacks when excited.  Our vet told us meds can help with this.

Geraldine is a teeny tiny 4.6lb 10yr old gal that is very scared at first but opens up after a few days.  I don't really think she knows of the awesomeness that is snuggling as she always acts like I am holding her hostage.  She was found wandering and her people were never located.  She was covered in fleas with a dislocated knee and skin issues resulting from being flea infested.  She is house trained but will go inside if not let out often enough so we are working on pee pad training.  She is heartworm negative and takes no meds.  She will need surgery for her knee that pops out but she can get around on it as of now.  There are no indications that she has ever been spayed.  If we are able to raise the funds we will get her knee surgery and spay done prior to adopting out.  She has been fully vaccinated.  She is good with others as long as they don't get in her face.  That and her being somewhat frail means she will not be adopted out to families with kids under 10 or with families with over amorous pets.

Adoption fee $50 to an approved adopter within 3 hrs of Gulfport, MS

Ginger cats!  Apparently someone told this family of 9 that our property needs cats!  We are currently in the process of getting them altered and rabies vaccinated.  They are very sweet and I think would make good inside cats if the adopter could give the cat a room to acclimate in for about a week or so.  We have 4 adults (1 male, 3 females all around 6months to 1yr) and 8 kittens about 12+ wks old, both male and female available.  

Adoption fee for each:  $15

SPECIAL NEEDS:  Patches, chihuahua/terrier mix, 10-15lbs.  Patches is a sweet and submissive boy who wants nothing more than to snuggle with you after he learns to trust you which could take some time.  He is around 5 years old.  Patches is up to date on vaccinations and heartworm negative.  Patches is crate trained and working on pee pad training.  He takes Buspirone for anxiety.  He is good with women, large dogs he mainly ignores, small males he is NOT good with (he will very aggressively fight them), small females he is fine as long as they do not get in his face (this is as long as you don't force interactions and let him be until he is comfortable which will take time). His adoption fee is $50 to an approved adopter.

PLEASE UNDERSTAND He is a VERY timid boy and will need someone with lots of patience and compassion.  He will need work with potty training due to marking if other animals are in the home or if he is in a new place - this is due to insecurity.  Belly bands with panty liners tucked inside are awesome for keeping males from peeing in your house.  He would not be good in an apartment complex due to his insecurity, he would find walking around there terrifying until he got to trust you fully.  He is terrified of men and children.  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.

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.

Precious is 12ish 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 and a slipped disk in her back 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 underdoganimalsociety@yahoo.com or through this website.

Lucy, 8 yrs young, spaniel mix, 30lbs.  Has PTSD issues from sexual trauma.  She could be available for adoption to someone understanding of her quirks and issues that is able to give her the love and patience that she requires.  NO KIDS UNDER 10, NO CATS.  She barks a lot.  She needs to be an inside dog.  She will need grooming quarterly.  She is VERY sweet and funny.  She is submissive and very awkward around other dogs.

Zoombie came to us...she walked right up to the front door and asked for help.  She had 6 week old kittens with her, was pregnant again, and had recently been attacked by something that ripped open her mouth and throat yet she would still carry mouthfuls of food to her kittens even though she could barely eat and was terribly skinny herself.  We got her all fixed up and realized she really really hates being inside so being that she stays on site she is now our mouser.  She honestly sucks at it but we don't tell her that. I have seen a field mouse walk right past her.   ;)

She is not available for adoption but lives at UAS.

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!


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.   Please email us after submitting an application so we can keep an eye out for it.  underdoganimalsociety@yahoo.com


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


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.
