Dixie Shores

On March 25 Dixie Shores was surrendered, at no fault of her own, by her former owner. This beauty's coat is the perfect mix of grey, buff, and tortoiseshell  making her stand out among the crowd. On July 26 Sharon P. couldn't look away from this stunning girl and new she needed to take Dixie Shores to her FURever home! We recently received an update on Dixie Shores, now named Hazel, and our staff couldn't be happier.

"Hello! After getting Hazel out of the carrier at home, she disappeared for about 12 hours. I searched everywhere... under beds and sofas, in closets, etc. Then she just came bounding out. Now, she is adjusting really well. Hazel loves looking out the big windows at squirrels, chipmunks and birds. She likes tossing her little mice into the air and pouncing on them and the HSHA staff said, she is a lap cat. Today she purred for the first time. She is such a delight!"
