We are small right now, but have big goals and dreams. The goal is to work closely with area shelters that have high kill rates, and transfer dogs that are labeled “unadoptable” from the shelters to Drifters’ Place. These will be dogs that are listed on the shelters' kill lists, so we save lives, as well as open up space for the shelter and assist them in lowering their kill rate. What we do then is take each dog, work on their nutrition, exercise, behavior and socialization. We foster and train them, helping each dog to become a truly remarkable companion and erase the "unadoptable" label forever. The goal is to work with every dog until it is ready to be adopted as a companion or helper dog, depending on its talents and skills. Those that come in as special needs and, after careful evaluation and fair training time, are deemed too unstable for the family environment, will remain as sanctuary dogs as long as they need to.
Come Meet our Pets:
You can make an appointment to visit our pets and we are happy to try to meet you at your requested time. We are working through a foster-based network right now until our facility is complete. So we have to arrange the meetings with the foster parents. Either email us email@example.com or call 662-816-5275 and we'll schedule your visit.
Our Adoption Process:
We require an application for each potential adopter. We typically take the application over the phone or in person. Afterward, if all checks out, we follow up with calling references that the applicant provides. Once the reference check out, we contact the vet references and then have a face to face meeting with the potential adopter and the dog. If all goes well and they get along, the contract is discussed and the fee of $150 to $375 is collected. We go over all vet records, any special instructions and then the adoption is complete. We typically will follow up after 2 weeks, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year.
