We have good news to share about Annie, our brown hound that we came home with from Healthy Dog Day! Today, Dr. LaDue examined her leg and while the wound doesn't look good, nothing is broken!! He is recommending heavy duty antibiotics, pain meds and crate rest! (Annie isn't too happy about the crate rest part, but it won't last very long!) ... See MoreSee Less

Put your paws together and welcome our newest arrival - SEAMUS! Seamus is a shih tzu/mini-schnauzer mix who was found wandering the street in the rain. He was so matted that he actually had twigs entwined in his mats and he was loaded with fleas that couldn't even get to his skin. The nice people who found him cleaned him up and got him safely to Dogma! Seamus is about 1 year old , weighs less than 10 lbs and has an awesome personality - he is dog-friendly, cat-friendly and kid-friendly! We will be getting Seamus vetted and then he will be ready for his Forever Home! Visit for more information on our Seamus or to apply to adopt him! ... See MoreSee Less

Put your paws together & give a warm welcome to a VERY special girl-dog, Annie, to Dogma! We were volunteering at the @Hillsborough Animal Health Foundation's 3rd Annual Healthy Dog Day when Annie showed up needing a safe place to go where she could get good vet care for a wound on her leg. Everybody agreed she hit the jackpot when we said she could be a Dogma dog! Annie is pictured here thanking animal control officer Buddy for all he does for the abused & neglected animals of Hillsborough County! We are going to get Annie vetted & then she will be up for adoption! Email for more information on Annie! ... See MoreSee Less

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).
