We have good news: OUR PUPPIES ARE ALL THRIVING!!! :D Thank you again to everyone who made a donation to help us with their care! We were able to make a substantial dent in our emergency vet bills! Next on their agenda is getting their shots and then spayed/neutered and microchipped (in the next week or two) and then they will be ready for their Forever Homes!

The puppies also finally have names! Meet our RUSSIAN litter - Boris, Vlad, Tamara and Tatyana!!

PUP-DATE! We got an email on our alumnus, FRED, today!! Fred was saved by some of our best friends at Timberlane Pet Hospital & Resort and if you visited us at the South Tampa Petsmart in the past year, you might remember seeing little Fred in his crate wearing his basket muzzle. You might have even asked us, "why is that dog wearing a MUZZLE?" And we would have looked at you like you had 6 heads and responded, "because he BITES!!"

Our resident volunteer miracle worker, Michelle, worked hard to put Fred's biting days behind him!! Fred got adopted by a wonderful young woman named Jordan a few months ago and check out the update we got today:

"Things have been going very well with Fred! He’s a wonderful addition to my life and I have no idea what I was doing without him. He and I went up to North Carolina for Christmas and he seemed to have a blast! Here he is bonding with my mom’s dog."

(note the empty toilet paper roll! A sign of truly happy dogs!! ;D ))

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).
