Dogma Pet Rescue

We are going to change our motto HOME OF THE FAT DOGS!!

Some of you may remember Jenny Craig, the World's Fattest Chihuahua, now we are pleased to announce our newest arrival - RICKY!!

Ricky is a golden retriever/corgi mix who weighs 85 POUNDS!!! We are guessing he should weigh 45-50 lbs!! We actually had Ricky when we first started Dogma in 2010 when he was a 30-lb, 10 month old puppy. We adopted him out and were very upset when Animal Services called us to let us know he was turned into them. The person we had adopted him to 9 years ago gave him to someone else who then brought him to the shelter because he wasn't allowed to have Ricky in his apartment.

Ricky is as awesome of a dog as he was a puppy!! He is dog-friendly, good with the inside cats in her foster home and LOVES EVERYBODY!!!

We have Ricky scheduled for an appointment at Bell Shoals Animal Hospital to get a rundown on his health, so stay tuned for uodates!!

Those of you who remember Jenny Craig will be happy to know that Ricky is being fostered by Amber who also fostered Jenny and got all of that weight off of her!! Amber named him Ricky after Ricky Gervais who also lost a TON of weight and is a massive animal rights advocate and supporter of rescue!!

I swear I keep saying I want to charge a fat dog grooming tax, unless it’s a dog who is actively losing weight! Poor Ricky! Glad he didn’t have to stay in the shelter for long!

He is a handsome boy. I hope you never let these people adopt ever again!

Ricky is definitely in good hands with Amber!! She did an amazing job with my Jenny Craig ❤

So beautiful! ❤️❤️🐾🐾

I’m going to have to move to your house, I’m needing the same outcome! Well wishes for Ricky! ♥️🐶♥️

Commenting on Mutley’s behalf: “Ricky is clearly just big-boned.”

He's beautiful! He'll feel so much better once he loses some of the weight. <3

He is beautiful!

I'm so happy you guys realize the added stress and damage excess weight can cause in dogs ❤️

This pup is adorable!

He’s so stubby and handsome!! 😍

Ricky you’re the cutest lil chunky monkey fluffy butt ever!

He is a fluffy boy

We are going to get her a dental and she needs to get up to date on her shots, so we'll let you know when she's available for adoption.

Put your paws together and welcome our newest adoptable dog, ODEN!!

We saved Oden from Hillsborough County Animal Services where he was completely emaciated. He weighed about 30 lbs and his current, healthy weight now is 50 LBS!

Oden is a 2-year old doberman/Australian shepherd mix, and he is a natural sportsdog!! He loves to go running with his foster family as well as walks, and he really likes helping out on their tractor! Oden is so smart and active that he picked up the new tricks we taught him in know time - he can sit, shake (he is even ambidextrous!), go down, stay, ROLL OVER (!), army crawl and speak on command!

We are looking for a home that is active and will keep Oden as engaged as we have. He needs a home, preferably with a fenced in yard to run around in, or with someone committed to really exercising him. He is living with very sweet, submissive little dogs and he is doing very well with them so we feel a similar-size, docile dog would be a good match for him, but he would be happy being an only dog, too. He is a people-dog and has loved everybody he's met... especially if they are giving him belly rubs!!

For more information or to apply to adopt Oden, visit www.DogmaRescue.org or you can help us out by sharing this post!

That is so awesome!

I am so happy that we raised as much as we did at DoMA Home Furnishings! Dogma is an awesome rescue and they are so deserving! Keep up the good work! 😍

Glad I read this more carefully! I'm well-familiar with rescue adoption photos and at first glance, thought, "That little rescue baby is not furry at all!" 😀

That’s fantastic!! Wow!!!

The pleasure is ours. Dogma Pet Rescue does amazing things and we are proud to be able to help support your efforts. Shout-out to all of our #DomaHomeFurnishings customers for donating to a fantastic organization!

Thanks DoMA Home Furnishings!!!

Congrats!

sweet!

Congrats!!

I like the phrasing "human babies".

WHAT'S THAT?

Is that a possum mixed with a rat??

No, it's our newest adoptable, a Chinese Crested named Lady Godiva!

Godiva may not look like our average dogs (we say that she wouldn't WIN an ugliest dog contest, but she could place! 😉 )) but we have never seen such a sweet girl! She is about 4-5 years old and we believe that she is a pure bred Chinese Crested, which means she needs extra care than most dogs. She also LOVES her people (which is a Chinese Crested trait) and likes to receive a lot of attention especially in the form of a warm lap to snuggle in!

We are thoroughly enjoying this weird, wonderful little girl in our rescue, and we're looking for a perfect Forever Home for her! If you are interested in learning more about Lady Godiva or applying to adopt her, please visit www.DogmaRescue.org!

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).
