Important Update from Miss Dixie’s
This has been a difficult year. Like many other organizations, we have been absolutely swamped with rescue, TNR and sponsored spay/neuter requests. While we work to accommodate everyone we can, we have been essentially closed for intake since June. Miss Dixie's is not a shelter and does not have a central location. This means that all our kittens are placed in foster homes upon intake, and remain there until aRead More →
What are ✨bonded pairs?✨
You might have heard that terminology before when describing two kittens or cats, but what does it mean?! Quite simply, it means they can't live without eachother. Bonded paris will do everything together: eat, sleep, play. You name it, they are doing it together. It's quite possibly the sweetest co-dependent relationship in existence. One misconception we hear is: well I don't want to get a bonded pair, theyRead More →

Transformation Tuesday & TNR Tuesday
We were on a TNR mission last week where we found this tiny baby and his sibling in horrible condition. Sick with an upper respiratory infection and worms, their eyes and nose were glued shut with gunk and they were very emaciated. Despite our best efforts and fast action, his sibling did not make it. However, baby Puck has made a huge recovery in just a little over a week! He is putting on lots of weight and enRead More →
Say hello to these cuties with the funny looking haircuts! These babies were born outside to a feral mama. A kind person saw that their mom was collapsed from exhaustion and overheated, so they brought her and the babies inside to keep them all safe. They didn’t have the funds to get them all vetted and fixed, so they did the next best thing: TNR. Their mama was TNR’d & released and the babies were alsoRead More →

Thank you to all our donors and volunteers, without you, this wouldn’t be possible. And a HUGE Thank you to the all veterinRead More →
Every Colony Has a Story to Tell

This person regularly feeds and cares for the cats .Last year, they were overwhelmed with kittens, and so this year, they reached out for help! Before weRead More →
