Hey There

Dalmatian Rescue is a nonprofit, no-kill organization dedicated to the rescue, protection, and placement of Dalmatians. We provide educational materials and advice as it pertains to this breed. Our organization exists solely on donations and volunteer efforts. We apply one hundred percent of all contributions directly to the care and maintenance of the Dalmatians under our guardianship.

Our Organization

We house, nurture, and maintain orphaned, sick, injured, abused, and deaf Dals and non-specific breeds in the areas mentioned above. Due to over breeding and vast popularity, Dalmatians have been labeled a misunderstood breed. This is the reason we see so much abandonment and homelessness.

While established in Florida, our rescue and placement efforts have become far-reaching. Dalmatian Rescue networks have built relationships with other Dalmatian Rescues nationwide. Although our organization is not affiliated with any of these groups, we find it essential and beneficial in the rescue world to rely on contacts and information sharing.

All pets taken into our care are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, heart-worm tested, micro-chipped, etc. prior to placement into a loving forever home or foster care. All pets are evaluated on personality, temperament, and adopt-ability and then placed accordingly. We have abandoned the kennel environment and now utilize foster homes. The pets live in home-like settings while learning house training, social skills, and manners, which we believe make for a more adoptable pet.

Our Rescue Programs

Out of necessity, our organization has established six programs that assist the helpless in specific areas of concern and need.

  • Deaf Dalmatian Care

  • Care For Life/Extended Care

  • Intensive Care

  • Puppy-mill recovery

  • Pets At Risk Rescue

  • Mercy for Life Rescue Program
