My story

Sweet Norwood has a tale as old as time. This two year old beagle mix was found in an inner-city neighborhood with significant wounds all over his neck, and a shotgun pellet in his ear. We don’t know what happened to him, but we do know he didn’t deserve it. Norwood is a big, gentle soul and he wouldn’t hurt a fly. He is looking for a peaceful home to enjoy the good life in.

Now that he’s all healed up and decompressed, we have learned so much about him. He is reserved and friendly, but prefers a quiet life. He is good with other dogs, but not the kind of pup you’d take to the dog park, and he would likely do just fine without another dog in the home or with a friendly, calm pup. He thrives with routine and predictability, and will start to come out of his shell when he knows he’s safe. He gets the cutest wrinkle in his nose when he smiles at his foster mom, and he talks to her too!

Norwood is uncomfortable around chaos. While he does well with the teenagers in his home, we think his ideal home would be an older, established family that doesn’t have too much “bustle” in the home. That being said, if he feels that the activity is too much, he will head to his crate happily for some quiet time.

Whatever happened to this sweet boy, he didn’t deserve it. Now we are here to make sure that the rest of his life makes up for his rocky start. If you are looking for a gentle, calm soul to provide companionship for the rest of his days, apply for Norwood! If interested in adopting one of our available pets, please fill out an application at http://www.dixiegirldogrescue.org/adopt-form

PLEASE MAKE NOTE- OUR DOGS ARE FOSTERED IN ALABAMA (UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED), OUR DOGS TRANSPORT TO THEIR NEW FAMILIES IN RHODE ISLAND AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN ADOPTED.

Our rescue pets are fostered in Southern foster homes (unless otherwise stated) and are posted for adoption once they are completely vetted and ready to travel. Our pets are adoptable in Alabama and New England States. Our adoption fee includes transport fee, spay/neuter, current vaccinations, deworming, heart worm test for animals over 7 months old, all necessary vetting and an interstate health certificate. Once an application is received, our team is happy to answer all of your questions and send additional pictures and videos. Thank you for thinking rescue!

More about this rescue

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
