About Miss Dixie's Kitten Rescue

Our Mission

We are a 501©3 nonprofit kitten rescue located in Seneca, South Carolina founded in 2019.

Our mission is to provide specialized care and attention to sick, injured and orphaned feline neonates and prepare them for placement into loving, forever homes.

  • Left to the elements, most orphaned kittens cannot survive on their own.
  • They need specialized care and medical attention in order to thrive.
  •  Our network of foster homes is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and adoption of these kittens.

Our Programs

We specialize in rehabilitating sick and injured kittens as well as raising orphaned neonatal felines. We are currently expanding our efforts to include a Full-Circle program focused on Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) in the Upstate. Our #1 goal is to reduce the number of sick, injured, and orphaned kittens coming into shelters.

  • Miss Dixie’s Sponsored Spay/Neuter Program
  • Foster/Adoption Program

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR)

Kittens do not magically appear out of nowhere. Every kitten has a story, and that story generally leads us to a colony of cats.

Sponsored Spay & Neuter Program

The biggest roadblock we have encountered in our community is access to reduced cost spay/neuter procedures and preventative vaccines.

Foster/Adoption Program

Miss Dixie’s Kitten Rescue is comprised of a network of foster homes dedicated to the health and wellbeing of every kitten in our care.

Opportunities to Sponsor

Like every non-profit we encounter everyday expenses that without supporters like you we could never do this work.

We couldn’t do what we do without the help of all of our volunteers! We wanted to give a special thank you to two of our volunteers, Crystal & Will. They joined our TNR team this year after working hard in their own neighborhood to get the community cats there fixed. We are sad to say goodbye to them as they are moving away, but we know they will continue to make a positive impact for cats wherever they go!

Is #throwbackthursday still a thing? Either way, we are using it as an excuse to show off this adorable pic from a kitten photoshoot @hannahdecossasphotography did for us over the summer. Bonus points if you recognize which foster this was! 😻 ...

❔What is a “freedom run”? It’s what we call the release of colony cats back to their homes after they have been TNR’d (trapped, neutered, returned).

🐈This Sunday we trapped 5 adult cats at a feral colony that we have been working on for some time. We had them all spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and ear tipped. Once they had a day to recover from the anesthesia, it was time to bring them back to their home. They were thrilled to be back!

😻Watch this video to see all the different types of freedom runs they gave us.

Please give a warm welcome to the newest member of Miss Dixie’s Kitten Crew!

This little guy was found at a work site. One of the employees spotted him and scooped him up before they started excavating.

Unsure where to go, the employee brought him to @magleyah in Clemson. They reached out to us and we were able to take him into foster.

We will be returning to where he was found to TNR the adults. Hopefully this guy will be one of the last few from that colony!
...

On Sunday we took in this sweet, sick little girl. Despite a severe upper respiratory infection, goopy eyes and intestinal parasites, she is doing really well!

She is part of a very large colony located in Anderson County. We will be working with @chiquitins.cat.project to ensure that all cats in that colony are fixed, vaccinated and returned to live out their best lives without continuing to add to the population.

Please give a warm welcome to Markup Brita Filter!!

*We are NOT accepting adoption application for Ms. Brita at this time.
