Dixie Girl Dog Rescue-RI's Adoption Process

1. Submit Application

Once we receive an application, we try to process it as soon as possible. To help the process move smoothly, please complete all questions.

2. Approve Application

We prefer applications with vet references. Landlord checks will also be completed on individuals that rent.

3. Interview

Once an application has been approved, it’s forwarded to the foster. They reach out to the applicant and answer any additional questions.

A potential adopter will submit a application. A vet reference is very helpful and will speed the adoption process along. Once approved, a phone interview will be conducted and the adopter will sign a contract. Transport will then be scheduled to bring the new pet home.

About Dixie Girl Dog Rescue-RI

I have been in Rescue for 11 years and created my own last March. We have a heart for the underdogs and are willing to do whatever it takes for any dog that we commit to. To make them healthy and adoptable so that they become cherished members of loving families. Rescue is not something that I would have chosen for my life, but it chose me and we work hard to give animals a chance that so deserve it.
Below is my narrative, if interested:


"It all began when I rescued my first dog, a Catahoula mix named Dixie, known affectionately by many as “Dixie Girl”, .hence the name of this organization. Dixie was an emaciated adult dog hit previously by a car and who had not stepped foot in a house prior to her rescue. She stopped my heart the minute I saw her and changed my world forever. Since her rescue, she has been my best friend showing unconditional love through the thick and thin of every aspect of my life. I feel everyone should experience the kind of love Dixie and I feel for each other, and, since that day, my passion and empathy for abandoned, forgotten dogs has consumed my life."


Founded in 2018, Dixie Girl Dog Rescue (DGDR) rescues dogs of all ages and breeds. As articulated in our Mission Statement: “Dixie Girl Dog Rescue is a nonprofit organization dedicated to finding forever families for unwanted, neglected, abused, and homeless dogs. Most organizations are willing to acquire healthy, young puppies, and while we do the same, we are here for the dogs who need a little extra help, including the mangy, sick, “broken”, broken-hearted, those who have been abandoned, left behind, and thrown away. What makes DGDR so unique is our willingness to save dogs from any situation, no matter how bad the dog's condition. With the help of our committed foster families, we work diligently to place dogs into permanent, loving, and, most importantly, responsible homes with families dedicated to caring for and making each animal feel like a newer, happier version of themselves. To ensure our rescues find the right families, we require a comprehensive adoption process. This process includes detailed applications, proper education to prospective adopters, vet checks, references, and thorough client interviews.


Dixie Girl Dog Rescue collaborates with other rescue organizations to safely transport and place our rescues into homes primarily in the northern United States. Dogs in our care receive all proper veterinary care prior to adoption, and, once medically sound, are transported up north fully vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed or neutered.


All donations received go directly to the care of our rescues. With the implementation of a 501(c)(3) status, our donors will be eligible for a tax deduction, therefore making them more inclined to support our overall goals. Rescuing is the first and most critical step; however, the rescued dog(s) requires/require so much more. Medical expenses, the cost of fostering, food, supplies, the adoption process, and our organized transportation services encompass a vast amount of labor, time and ongoing funding.


We continue building relationships with a number of dog lovers along with many others willing to fund our efforts if tax deductions are available. In addition to these private donations, DGDR plans to generate revenues from varied seasonal events, silent auctions, bake sales, lake events sponsored by partnered homeowners, themed events at local restaurants, and other experiences created via our partnerships with area businesses, restaurants, and local merchants willing to selflessly donate a portion of their proceeds to DGDR

Come Meet Dixie Girl Dog Rescue-RI's Pets

The majority of our dogs/cats are fostered in Alabama. We have wonderful foster families that contact all applicants to answer any additional questions or provide more photos and videos. Once a application is approved our dogs/cats are transported north to their new families. We use a private transport that is USDA certified and Licensed. All dogs are fully vetted and will travel with a Alabama Health Certificate and their medical records.
We are a 501C3 rescue. We can offer references upon request.
