Story
Meet Mama Kitty! She's the Mom to Boy Kitty and a previous litter of kittens that was adopted out through DGDR earlier this year. Mama Kitty was living life as a stray but was being fed by a kind hearted cat lover. Unfortunately that cat lover got very ill, eventually succumbing to her disease, but her care takers took over caring for Mama Kitty. They worked hard to earn her trust and and now she's living the good life! Mama Kitty is around 3 years old and is such a sweetheart! She is black with a tiny sprinkling of white hairs along the back of her neck. She is a soft shorthair with the most expressive eyes and almost too big for her head, ears. :D This sweet Mama is great with pups, other cats, and not so screamy kids. She will need a little time to adjust like most cats but once she knows its a safe space, she blossoms! It took a little time once she moved into her new foster home but Boy Kitty's extremely outgoing nature helped her open her up so they would love to be adopted together or to a home with another friendly cat. Mama Kitty would prefer a quieter home but is okay with dance parties and knows her routine. When she does get startled, she runs to her cat bed but comes out as soon as she realizes everything is fine. Nothing against screaming toddlers but this damsel is more of a cuppa sipping, lap sitting, bird watching, and comfy place napping type of cat. She's quiet company that will be your best friend and gentle companion. She is a bit of a squeaker like Boy Kitty and will talk to you, letting you know it's time for dinner, she's ready for ear scratchies (or more ear scratchies), and just to say hello. Mama Kitty doesn't love being carried but she will settle into your lap or next to you after she paces back and forth for a bit. She's just looking for someone to give her that chance. If you think that might be you, please let us know by completing an app here: dixiegirldogrescue.org/adopt-form. We'll forward it to her foster mom who will share all the pictures and talk all things Mama Kitty with you to ensure it's a match. ================================================================== If interested in adopting one of our available pets, please fill out an application at http://www.dixiegirldogrescue.org/adopt-form Most of our are pets are fostered in Southern foster homes and are posted for adoption once they are completely vetted and ready to travel.

Woody and Buzz are beautiful bonded brothers. Laid back boys with a lot of love to share. They would do fine in home with working parents as they have each other but will be waiting to greet you each day with purrs and cuddles. Their adoption fee includes shots, neuter, deworming and FIV/Felv test.

Story
Adoption fee will be to help recoup a small portion of Little Tiger's veterinary costs so that more little ones like him can be saved. He came from a tnr colony at around eight weeks old where we were doing TNR (TNVR). Little Tiger is already neutered, had rabies, fvrcp, and feline leukemia vaccinations, and is feline leukemia/FIV negative. He has had surgery to remove eyelashes that were curling down toward his eye. The procedure has been performed twice on his both eyes and has been cleared by the specialist. Now he needs a furever home to love and care for him. Little Tiger is a very sweet boy and would love to have another cat as a playmate to keep him company. He loves taking naps on anything soft and rips and runs on the rare occasion with one of his foster siblings. He enjoys being held and will do wonderful with some more one on one attention as his foster mom is spread pretty thin. Little Tiger has the cutest face and everyone that meets him thinks he is such a sweet boy.

Story
Fred is the smaller of two sweet brothers. He is what we call “aggressively affectionate.” He loves to climb in your lap and nuzzle your face. He *loves* the screened porch. He is about 6.5 years old, neutered, up to date on healthcare, etc. He has lived with two dogs and gotten along swimmingly with them. He has also been very tolerant of and sweet with our toddler. Generally speaking, he is a precious family kitty who loves to be with his people and other animals. Unfortunately we have a serious cat allergy that has developed in our household. We’ve tried to keep the cats away from the allergic person, but it’s become untenable. I want them to be free to live their full, affectionate lives. It’s only fair to them. Would prefer to adopt Fred and his brother George together if possible.

George is the sweet brother of Fred (like the Weasley twins). George, the sweet chonk, is laid back and likes to be near his people. He loves a good lap nap, but he’s also content to sit on the back of the couch with you or explore in his own. He *loves* the screened porch and even a little leash walk outside. He is about 6.5 years old, neutered, up to date on healthcare, etc. He has lived with dogs and gotten along swimmingly. He has also been very tolerant of our toddler.

We’ve tried to keep the boys away from the allergic person, but it’s become untenable. I want them to be free to live their full, affectionate lives. It’s only fair to them. Would prefer to adopt together with brother Fred if at all possible.

Story
Gracie is a lovable, timid, playful adult cat who loves to snuggle. Her hair is grey and white. She is in good health and is approximately 9 years old. Gracie would be happy to meet another cat as she used to have a brother, but she would also thrive in a home where she is the sole pet. Her human mom recently passed away on March 23, 2024. Gracie's human mom loved her dearly and her only wish was to have Gracie adopted and rehomed into a loving family.
