In February of 2008 RPSM began a partnership with Lakeland and Florence Crane Correctional Facilities, initiated by Warden Carol Howes. RPSM provides vetted shelter and rescue dogs to the prison for training by skilled prisoners for placement in permanent adoptive homes. We began with six dogs and now have 15 dogs placed within the the prison. The dogs are trained for three months and emerge completely housebroken and obedience trained, ready for new homes. These dogs are a great choice for your family; they are completely vetted and spayed & neutered as well. Refurbished Pets of Southern Michigan is your Pet Placement Partner located in Branch County Michigan. We are extending ourselves into surrounding counties. Our purpose is to promote positive change within high kill animal shelters, while placing as many adoptable animals as possible from these shelters into adoptive homes, respectable agencies and rescue organizations.
Most of our dogs are in foster homes before going into the prison training program. Adopters are unable to meet our dogs until adoption day. Please go to our website for more information, view our available pets, and fill out your adoption application: www.rpsm.org. **RPSM cannot be 100% certain of a particular breed of any dog on our site, it is the best guess at a predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
