In 2019 our founder began fostering kittens. She quickly realized the need for more specialized care when it came to sick, injured and orphaned kittens & need for trap neuter return (TNR services), and put a plan into action. She founded Miss Dixie’s Kitten Rescue, named after her dog, Dixie, who loved all the kittens.
Since then, what started as a single person has grown into a sizable organization. In 2021 Miss Dixie’s rescued, fostered and adopted 156 kittens and cats, and helped TNR over 30 community cats.
Miss Dixie’s is comprised of our board members, fosters and volunteers, all dedicated to bettering the lives of kittens and cats in our community.
Our mission, while complicated (or large), can be boiled down to a single sentence: we are changing the upstate, one kitten at a time.
