Drifters’ Place: For Dogs, by Humans

“All beings tremble before violence. All fear death. All love life.”

Welcome to

Thank you for stopping by! I have a lot to tell you! But first, let me ask you a question. Do the words “unadoptable dog” have any effect on you? Every time I hear them, my heart breaks. You might as well call the “unadoptable” dog a piece of garbage, because in the majority of shelters in this country, that’s exactly how they are treated. They are killed and thrown into dumpsters, just like the trash we threw out last night or this morning. At Drifters’ Place there is no such thing as an “unadoptable dog.” The dogs we take in will be rehabilitated, and trained so they’ll one day have the life that every dog deserves. A life that’s full of love and joy and is shared with a companion who takes care of them and protects them.

Well, you’re here, and we’re glad.  We hope you’ll stick around long enough to find out who we are, what we do and what we’re all about. We appreciate your interest in Drifters’ Place. We’re just getting things going, and there is so much work left to do, but if you love dogs and you want to learn how to help them, please come back often. We can learn together. I don’t claim to know it all–not even close. I just saw a need and a place for me and dove in. I’ll never claim that I can do this alone, and I’ll never turn down help, as long as it’s the right kind of help. That’s one reason we’re doing a blog; so we can get input and assistance.

Click on About to get the details of our mission and goals. Thanks again for checking us out. After getting to know us a bit and learning more about what we’re doing, if you’d like to help by volunteering or spreading the word about this great organization, please contact us and we’ll tell you how.  You can email us at and let us know what you like to do or if there is a specific way you’d like to help.  Or if you just want to know how you can help, drop us a line.  There are a lot of unwanted dogs that need our help and there are entirely too many dying because too many people think they can’t be saved.  If you like dogs and if you’ve ever thought you want to help dogs, we need you.

    Hi Stephanie,

    Saw the article on you in yesterday’s (Friday, August 26, 2011) Oxford Eagle. I did not know that Drifter”s Place existed, but so glad to know it does!!! You will never know how much I love ALL animals, and dogs especially!! I have NEVER not had a dog or should I say dogs!! I have had so many thrown out here…mostly babies. Just cannot let them die! Wish I were able to help…maybe I can in some way. Where are you located? Don’t think Rebecca had the location right…southern Panola County…not surprised!!!! I know for sure, you mentioned Mt. Liberty Church, and I know where that is!!!

    What is your price range, or does it just “depend” on many different things? Many years ago, we raised and sold Pugs, which we shipped everywhere. No puppy mill!!! Just did it for the love and pleasure received from it.

    Let me know a few things that I have asked, if you don’t mind. I might even know you!!! My daughter and my beloved late husband always saying I know everybody!!! May God bless you, and He will, for what you are doing. He did not give us animals to abuse and have “put to sleep” because they are a bother. I always say, “don’t get them if you are not going to treat them right and take care of them:!!! Oh! yes….I LOVE your Website!! Was so excited that you had one! I’ve looked at it from “civer to civer”!!! LOL!!!

      Hello Pat,

      Thank you for contacting us! And thank you for the encouragement. The website is certainly a work in progress and I have some updating to do. But we do get the message across I think. We are in south Panola county. It wasn’t what we originally planned on, but it was a good deal and the timing was perfect. If you’d like to help us, we’d love to have you! There is so much work to be done and right now I still have a full time job, so any help is greatly appreciated.

      The fees for the dogs do vary. Typically they are anywhere from $100 to $325 depending on the dog and if we have to transport, treat, etc. I love doing this and am glad it is working out. People like you make it even easier. Just the words of encouragement make all the difference.

      Thank you for your kind words and support.

    Hi Stephanie,

    Thanks for your reply. Know you will do a great work with your Drifter’s Place!

    What little I may be able to help would depend on how far I live from Drifter’s Place. I live right in the corner of Lafayette, Panola, and Yalobusha counties!!!! May be able to help some if it EVER cools off some. I just cannot take the hot weather!! LOVE cold weather!!!!

    Let me know a little more if you are interested in my little bit of help.

    God Bless,

    I would really like to be apart of this. For some reason my heart is pulling me towards helping this organization grow. Anything I can do to help.
