You might have seen the other chip-in I did for Dixie. That ended (they require an end date) and I was not able to re-open it to extend the period to collect funds. I collected $300 out of the $500 goal; her boarding costs $84 a week. Dixie has been in boarding since the second week of September.
I pulled Dixie from a kill shelter. It is a low-kill / low-visibility shelter and she spent three long years there (with volunteer love, but she so wants a home of her own!). Like many shelters across the country, we are completely full and Dixie needed to move on or it wasn't going to end well.
She was to be an easy adoption; she never caused any trouble for anyone and was just basically homeless. I had an adoption lined up for her; she got along with the nice people's dog and they loved her, but when we brought Dixie to the house to meet the cats, we learned she REALLY doesn't like cats (and there were three). So, I am back at square one and out of boarding money at the end of this week.
Boarding costs $12 a day. I hope you can give one day of boarding, and pass this along. If you would like to donate directly to the boarding facility, please contact me and I will send you the info.
Thanks for your interest and please pass this on through any social media or through email to friends.
Dixie will come fully vetted to an approved home. Application, vet check, and home check are necessary. Adopters should be in general NYC area, as she is boarding in the Bronx, and we want to have you meet her in person.
ADOPT, DON'T SHOP!
