Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Thank you for your wish to rescue, save, adopt and give a furever home to one of our very deserving puppies or dogs!
Once we receive your application you will be able to talk with the foster home to find out all about them!

We are an all volunteer run organization. We do not have a physical shelter as we are strictly a dog rescue organization. The dogs SDAC coordinates adoptions for have come from Mississippi shelters and, regardless of what state the dogs are posted, they ARE FOSTERED IN THEIR SOUTHERN FOSTER HOMES UNTIL ADOPTED, unless we are lucky enough to have a northern foster home, then it will say "In New England" after the dog's name. Most of our lucky dogs and lucky puppies are adopted by families living in the northeast!

All of our dogs arrive with a current Health Certificate, are up to date with vaccinations and are transported on a U.S.D.A. approved transport.

These dogs and puppies all deserve a home who will treat them as family members, who will give them a warm and loving 🌟inside🌟 home, a soft bed to sleep on, plenty of food, toys to play with, family members to take them for walks and rides and, finally, give them the chance to enjoy the rest of their life.

❤️❤️ YOU are their hope, they need YOU to adopt them to complete their lives ❤️❤️

About Our Rescue Group:

Southern Dogs Adoption Coordinator, works to facilitate the re-homing of puppies and dogs in need, all of them come from the efforts of our affiliate Mississippi rescue groups and their wonderful dedicated foster homes who rescue and rehabilitate and take care of these babies for so long before coming northeast to their furever homes.

The majority of dogs and puppies in the south will be killed within 7 days of being dropped off at a shelter:
IF they are thought to be strays
IF an owner drops them off they could be on their way to be euthanized as the owner walks to their car
IF we have room in a southern foster home we can pull many of them and place them into foster care for several weeks, with a private foster family until they are fully vetted.
There are a lot of IFs in rescue.....
When there is a litter of puppies in need of rescue and their Mom is available we ALWAYS take her in, too, once her puppies are weaned she is spayed. Then they head north to new furever homes!

IF a dog or puppy is marked as "Northeast" it simply means they are already there or will come into northern foster care IF they are NOT adopted first, if they are adopted first they will arrive from MS directly to their new family, once in their new home they must stay within the family's home and yard for one week!

Once a dog is committed to, they go on the next available transport. IF they remain in the MS foster home they are taking up a space where another dog or puppy could be pulled from the shelter, or kept from going into a shelter, to come into rescue. Stray dogs and puppies have a 7 day "hold" in the shelter (waiting for someone to come in and claim them) before they are euthanized, so an adopted dog or puppy remaining in a foster home could mean the death of another dog or puppy.

Come Meet our Pets:

We do not have one physical location. Our dogs and puppies are kept in private foster homes in Mississippi and in New England (IF we are lucky enough to have a northern foster home) as part of a family, to help prepare them for transition into their northern forever homes and also to have enough time to have them receive all the necessary vetting we require before placing them with an adoptive family, for their health and safety.

You are very welcome to speak with the the foster family about the dog/puppy you are interested in after we receive your application!

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process involves a completed application, a vet reference, a phone interview/home visit and an adoption agreement must be signed. The adoption fee goes to the vetting and personal care of the dog/puppy you are adopting as well as the care of other dogs/puppies coming into rescue. Adoption fees MAY vary per dog or puppy. Each profile will indicate that particular dog's/puppy's adoption fee.

Our standard adoption fee is $450 which covers:

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
