  • Closing tonight with the sad news of the passing of one of Hillsborough County's most treasured philanthropists and advocates of unwanted dogs, Karyn Ringhaver. We could list everything Karyn did for the animals and for us (it is a long, amazing list) but that's not the whole of who Karyn was. This picture of Karyn with her beloved dog, Jagger, accompanied by the words of our "brother," Michael Honer, tell the real story of Karyn. We wish Karyn, now reunited with Jagger, and everybody, a very peaceful night. "Today the world lost a truly special person, Karyn Ringhaver. For those who were fortunate enough to have known her they know the world is a little less bright today. Karyn exemplified all that is right with the world. She truly was the embodiment of humility, grace, love, compassion and courage. To know her was to love her and to love her means that today you grieve. But under the grief is the knowledge that heaven has reclaimed one of its angels today and she is at peace and watching over us with love. Rest in peace Karyn. My life was better because I knew you. Hug Jagger for us."

  • We want to wish all of our Hillsborough County kids a good first day back to school! Work hard this year, get good grades and have a lot of fun! Also, don't give your parents lip about getting out of bed in the morning - they don't want to be up early either! XOXOXO!!!

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).
