Dixie County Humane Society is a volunteer group whose mission is to rehab and re-home neglected, abused and unwanted animals. We also provide a safe alternative to shelters for owners who are faced with the decision to find a new home for their animal.
Proudly, Dixie County Humane Society is a no-kill shelter that was founded in 2006 by Pamela Swanson. Since our very inception, we have been fully committed to our core belief – every life counts.
Our challenges are many. First and foremost, we survive solely on adoption fees and the generosity of those who donate to our organization. All tax deductible donations are used entirely for the benefit of our animals. We do not receive funding from any government, any national or local organizations, any other charitable groups, or United Way.
Our labor is driven by love. It is also driven by urgency. Regrettably, we reside in a County that is more interested in euthanizing animals than it is in saving them. In the face of these terrible odds, and in view of the continuing efforts of county government to thwart our efforts, our mission is perpetually challenged. Nonetheless, our dedication thrives. Despite the sixty plus animals euthanized by the authorities every month, our commitment continues. Since our inception, we have saved 2000 abused, abandoned, and lost dogs and cats.
It can be said that our work is never done. We are proud to accept that challenge… for the animals.
We hope that you will take a few minutes to read more about what we do in the pages that highlight this one, starting with Penny.
We take those who others will not. We are committed to saving the sick, the injured, the abused, and the neglected … those who would surely be put to death if we were not there for them.
In the true stories that follow, please meet some of the remarkable little creatures that have endured unspeakable challenges.
We are forever inspired by the strength of these precious beings … their remarkable spirit, their enduring trust, and their unconditional love … And we believe you will be too.
