Nickee Mixon

Co-Owner, Creatures Great & Small

Nickee & Kiwi

Nickee Mixon is the co-owner of Creatures Great & Small, as well as a pet sitter & dog walker. She has always loved animals but didn’t have pets as a young child due to growing up in a military family and  traveling overseas.

 As an adult, Nickee made up for lost time!  She has experience with a wide variety of animals including dogs, cats, horses, birds, goats, rabbits, and orphaned wildlife. She has been a volunteer at a local animal shelter, always has at least one foster at home, is active in spay/neuter/release and has many pets of her own.

She provides the same high quality care for others pets that she does for her own. While it’s difficult to name the best thing about pet sitting, being rewarded through relationships with the animals and people she’s gotten to know is near the top!

Tony Mixon

Co-Owner, Creatures Great & Small

Tony Mixon is the co-owner of Creatures Great & Small. In addition to being an animal lover, he’s a “people person”. He can often be found behind the scenes, doing whatever needs to be done. 

Tony also came from a military family. When his Dad retired, he & his family moved to a small farm in Georgia. He stayed busy working on the farm, in school clubs and playing sports.

Tony & Nickee met at Georgia Southern. After living in South Carolina and South Florida, they moved to Jacksonville in 1993. It’s been home ever since!  In September, the couple will celebrate their 32nd wedding anniversary.
