Our Mission

Dalmatian Rescue of Tampa Bay rescues, rehabilitates, and rehomes as many Dalmatians and Dalmatian-mixes in Florida shelters as possible that need our help. Our first and main priority is to take the Dalmatians and Dalmatian-mixes who are facing euthanasia at high-kill facilities. If resources permit, we also help Dalmatians in surrounding states.

  • We provide care-for-life foster homes and a sanctuary for Dalmatians who cannot find a home due to their advanced age and/or medical conditions.
  • We thoroughly screen prospective owners with home and veterinary reference checks before placing any Dalmatian into a new home.
  • We do post adoption follow-ups either by calls or visits to insure that the adoption requirements are fulfilled.
  • We provide ongoing assistance and support to all adopters of our Dalmatians.
  • All dogs are spayed or neutered and given any medical treatment needed to ensure they are healthy before being placed.
  • We strive to educate the public about rescue and adoption by attending numerous events throughout the year.  

Dalmatian Rescue of Tampa Bay is dedicated to Lady and Tramp

and all the other spots we have loved and lost.
