We have quite a posh new arrival to welcome to Dogma... she is a very special little lady named Annabelle! She had to be surrendered by her owner because she needed expensive surgery to remove a very large bladder stone. We got her into Vets 4 Pets and we are very happy to say that Annabelle is recovering well and she is a happy, sweet, loving girl!

Annabelle is a Pekingese who is 7 years old and weighs about 20 lbs.

We still need Annabelle to rest and relax and get heal from her emergency surgery, and then we need to catch up with some more routine vetting she needs before she is available for adoption, but we are taking applications on her now. Please email Info@DogmaRescue.org is you are interested or have any questions!

We have been hit with very sad news. One of our adopters, David Gray, lost his very hard-fought battle with cancer late this week.

Five or six years ago, we took in a dog from Citrus County who had been returned to the shelter three times for bad behavior (not aggressive, just crazy!). The rescue coordinator there at the time assured us this dog, Bandit, with his raccoon-mask, had potential. We took him in and adopted him to the Gray family - David & Monica and their amazing kid, Charlie.

We felt so much love and warmth in the Gray home! They were such a nice family, and so kind and giving. As we left Bandit with the Gray's, we suddenly became very religious and prayed that Bandit didn't blow this incredible opportunity!

He did not blow it; Bandit thrived with the Gray's and was the PERFECT DOG!!! Over the years, we got to know David - seeing pictures of every one of Charlie's orchestra performances, David's slightly twisted sense of humor (which fit in well with us at Dogma Pet Rescue!), and following David as he documented his diagnosis.

Bandit actually became David's THERAPY DOG! Seeing the MANY pictures of Bandit accompanying David to his treatments deepened what we do at Dogma. To know that Bandit, a shelter dog returned 3 times, was a comfort to such a special person like David ... there are no words.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Monica and Charlie.

David was also a devout Catholic, so we are posting the prayer of the Patron Saint of the Animals, St. Francis of Assisi, in his memory:

Lord, make me an
instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred,
let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, joy.

We have a Happy Tail to report: YODA GOT ADOPTED!!

Yoda, along with Rey Skywalker, came to us out of the Green Swamp where they had obviously been abandoned. Luckily they were found by just the right person and now Yoda has a FABULOUS FOREVER FAMILY!

We are also excited to have the Lyons' join our extended Dogma family (and Ed is another attorney-adopter so we have one more reason to celebrate Be Kind to Lawyers Day!!) and we are so glad to have them in the fold!

Congratulations Yoda, and Ed & Liz!!!

Boochi has settled in so well to her foster home, and we are still looking for a Forever Family for our former show dog!

Boochi is an award winning Gordon Setter, but we don't care so much about that. Boochi is retired now, and her days of being a fancy, danc-ey, prancy show dog on the circuit are behind her! We will say that her former owner (an elderly lady who could not longer care for her) LOVED Boochi very much, and took immaculate care of her! Her love and care shows in Boochi's health and well-being - we have done a full blood panel on Boochi and she is the perfect picture of health!

Boochi is enjoying her retirement being a happy house dog! She is loving life with her foster family - Boochi is very affectionate, sweet and a funny girl! She is dog-friendly and loves everybody she meets! Boochi is also a good girl - she is house broken, crate trained and from all of her years in the ring, she has EXCELLENT leash manners!

To learn more about Boochi or to apply to adopt her, visit www.DogmaRescue.org!

Here is actress Katrina Stevenson cuddling with puppy Beatrice whom we named after her character at the Tampa Shakespeare Festival!

Shakespeare is over for the year, but you can still catch Katrina in an AMAZING performance at The Jobsite Theater's The Maids SATURDAY & SUNDAY ONLY! The Maids has gotten all rave reviews!

And puppy Beatrice found a Forever Home with her foster family! She was so sweet, her foster parents, Mark & Angela, decided they couldn't part with her!

Dogma alum Mozart wishes everyone a very peaceful night.  :)

Every Thursday ... every male dog ... they always seem to get a sense in their cajones that something is ... not going to go well for them ....

That is what Jumpin' Jack Flash (Remix 2016) seemed to be thinking on our drive to Vets4Pets Charitable Clinic today! We tried to tell Remix that he had nothing to worry about, that he won't be missing out on anything, that he will live a longer, happier, healthier life ... Maybe he just wasn't in a place to really "hear" us this morning! ;)

Adopting from Dogma Brings Good Karma!

Dogma Pet Rescue, Inc. was founded on January 6, 2010 and is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization as well as a registered charitable organization in the State of Florida (CH34850).

Dogma is an all-volunteer, all-pet rescue with an emphasis on rescuing mixed breed dogs (mutts!) in need. Dogma’s mission is to rescue good dogs, adopt them to the best possible homes and have fun doing it!

Dogma rescues abandoned, abused and displaced dogs who would otherwise have nowhere to go and/or would be euthanized. Dogma is often a rescue of last resort. Dogma pays for all of the necessary vetting of each dog prior to adoption. Every Dogma dog is spayed/neutered, microchipped, dewormed, heartworm tested and vaccinated (age appropriate).
