At Refurbished Pets of Southern Michigan we partner with regional animal shelters and Lakeland Correctional Facility in Coldwater, Michigan to help dogs reach their maximum potential and find loving forever families. Our carefully screened dogs are fully vaccinated and spayed or neutered before entering their 10 week program with specially trained inmates who are fully responsible for their daily training and care. When the dogs graduate training they are ready to receive a canine good citizen certificate (CGC) and are available for adoption into an approved home.

RPSM does not have a facility as we utilize foster homes to care for most of the dogs that enter our program. Once you are approved to adopt, you may be able to meet with a dog that is in a foster home before they enter training. If approved to adopt a dog while they are in training, you will receive their weekly reports until adoption day.

Fill out our adoption application to begin getting ready for your next furry family member.


This is important work and we simply can’t do it alone. There are so many ways that you can help us make a difference. We are always looking for the right people to join our amazing team of foster-parents and volunteers. We also are 501c3 non-profit organization that is 100% donation run.
