New Life Dog Rescue

Riverview, FL

Our Mission

In a community where people disregard their pets and the local county high intake kill shelter is busting at the seems there comes a point where you know you need to be part of the solution. New Life Dog Rescue is a 501c3 not for profit organization that was founded in late 2015 for just that, to help dogs find their "New Life".

With 90% of the shelter being bully breeds, it comes as no surprise that our rescue is full of them. We have a special place in our heart for bully breeds, throw away momma dogs, and dogs with Demodex mange (a non-contagious skin condition) that frequently get overlooked or may end up euthanized due to their medical conditions. We open up our hearts and homes to these animals. We help them get healthy, socialized, housebroken and work with trainers to help start out on the right path to their perfect forever home.

In a perfect world, these dogs wouldn't need saving, their lives wouldn't be in jeopardy, but that isn't the world we live in and until then... we will be their voice.

Adoption Policy

Please note, all of our dogs are in foster homes. You must fill out a application before you can meet/see the dogs we have available.
If you see the dog on here, it is still available. If curious on updates of a dog, check out our facebook page!

Adoption Process:
Fill out an application at
We will do a background check and verify home ownership. If rental, we must receive a letter from the
management company or owner on their letter head approving the breed listed of the dog they are
inquiring about. If the background check has any discrepancies or the current animals in the home are
not current on vaccinations we will void the application.
We do a home inspection. Often times we will do a meet and greet in the home with the dog and the
family if they are in the Tampa Bay area and have another animal in the home.
If all is approved then the adopters will complete a final contract form and the donation is made at
which time the health records and all shot records are turned over to the new owner.
