Your Donations Really Do Matter!

We run entirely on donations from private individuals and groups. Our overhead is low - we have no paid employees or contractors. Even our website hosting and design is donated.

We have five Dixie dogs still in our care. Three of these are heart worm positive and are receiving appropriate treatment. The other two must be kept current on their parasite prevention. They may need additional vet care (animals often do!), and we are committed to caring for them until they have found loving, permanent homes. Here is one of them having a good time with her foster brother - also a Dixie rescue!

Help us get our Trap-Neuter-Return program for feral cat colonies off to a good start. We need to purchase appropriate traps in addition to paying for spay/neuter services which are $35-45 per animal (if there are no complications).

Helping our neighbors pay for spay/neuter surgeries is an essential part of our mission. The best way to alleviate the suffering of unwanted and stray animals is to have fewer unwanted and stray animals in the first place! Spay and neuter surgeries typically cost $65-70 per dog and $35-45 per cat.

Our fostering program intake is currently closed. To re-open and expand, we need funds! Basic expenses for the required initial vetting of a healthy dog are $195+; for a healthy cat, $160+. This does not include any veterinary services beyond the most basic - no treatment for injuries or infections or the like. It also does not cover food and other care supplies. Those items are currently donated, often by the good people caring for the animals while they wait for their forever homes.

Donating Food and Supplies

To donate food and care supplies, you can take items to Made in the Shade, The Outpost, Embear's Vintage Charm, or Brayden & Company all in downtown Jefferson. Please only donate new items and unopened food for the health and safety of the animals. We especially need dog food, cat food, crates, and carriers.
