May Charity Spotlight on Refurbished Pets of Southern Michigan

By 4Knines Staff. | Giving Back

Abandoned dogs in Michigan are being sent to jail for three months - but not because they committed any crimes. In 2008, Refurbished Pets of Southern Michigan (RPSM) began a partnership with the Coldwater Prison Complex by creating a training program to help prepare previously homeless dogs for adoption into good homes. 

Dogs selected for the RPSM Correctional Companion Program are rescues who have been screened for temperament, trainability, and adoptability. They are assigned to security-screened inmates who take responsibility for the day-to-day care and training of their canine companions. During this time, dogs are housebroken, socialized, obedience-trained, and most of all, loved! Upon the successful completion of the program, dogs are presented with a canine good citizen certificate and are made available for adoption into approved homes. 

RPSM’s vision is not to predict the future but to help create it. The RPSM Correctional Companion Program not only helps prepare dogs for their new homes, it also enriches the lives of the inmates who care for them. This highly successful program serves as a form of rehabilitation for inmates and dogs alike... allowing both to reenter society as valued and productive members.   

Refurbished Pets of Southern Michigan is guided by a passionate and ethical commitment to save and restore animals to a state of well-being. By taking active measures to prevent animal suffering and needless euthanasia, RPSM is making a positive impact in their community. In addition to the Correctional Companion Program, RPSM volunteers also work to educate their communities about rescue programs, responsible dog ownership, and pet overpopulation.

 The cost of each dog’s “prison sentence” is approximately $285. The RPSM Correctional Companion Program is entirely donation-driven, and they need your help! Please join 4Knines in supporting the important work of this award-winning non-profit organization. You can make a monetary donation and/or purchase a variety of items from their Amazon wish list. If you happen to live in the Coldwater, MI area, RPSM is always in need of volunteers

By partnering with Refurbished Pets of Southern Michigan, you will help to help restore a dog's life, restore a prisoner’s life, and enrich families with a trained dog!Air Travel Tips and Dog Seat Covers: Cargo, Dog Bed Liner, Bed Cover: 30% Off Premium Seat Covers

The best evaluations of our products come from the people who’ve bought them.

So So

The concept is a good one, however there is room for design improvement. The little tabs didn't work AT ALL in my 2008 Subaru Outback. However, even if they did work I then would not be able to roll the windows up and down as needed. For me that is not an option. I haven't yet tried using the Velcro attachments since my husband is not convinced it's a good idea to attach something like that to the door panel. With all that being said the product itself looks good, and the concept is a great one. When my puppy gets bigger I will try the Velcro when my husband isn't watching.:)

Great Protection

I think this seat cover is going to work out just fine. It fits well, was extremely easy to install. Just waiting for my new puppy to be old enough to bring home.

Seat cover just received

It would be nice to be able to actually get some use out of it before I can honestly review the product. I will say that so far my experience with 4Knines has been wonderful. Their customer service is great.

Great Cover

I been getting these covers for many years and have never been disappointed with them great quality and well made something you don't see very much anymore !

If you have dogs, and love your car, this is a must buy!

I recently purchased the Cargo Cover to protect my new Subaru Outback. My dogs love car rides, but they're also shedding dogs and make a mess. The Cargo Cover took a brief 30 seconds to install and provides protection against dirt, scratches, hair, dander. It's super easy to clean-up too!

Great Product!

XL cargo liner fit my GMC Yukon Denali perfectly. While our 20 lb dog doesn't put much stress on the liner, it works great keeping the back clean from carrying our often muddy recumbent bicycles around. Top notch product, fast delivery. Thanks!

Leon Campbell

Great products. We are return customers.

Bought the bench cover and side panels for our Nissan Pathfinder. Looks great. We have the same set up in our Titan truck and couldn't be happier with the protection it gives to our leather interior. Highly recommend. Shipping was super fast!!!

Marchelle Jones

Super nice

I purchased seat covers for my Ford F-350 and my Ford Edge - really nice fit and I have piece of mind knowing my seats are protected!
