Amadeus was bought as a Long haired Dachshund from a breeder 6.5 years ago. He has soft, spiked hair, and big "bat like" ears that hang down and stand up, too! Such a funny, little man dog! He will need a special person to adopt him as he is not very trusting of humans and has a quick bite reflex. He has gotten 100% better over the months we've had him, but we still are careful to not pick him up too quickly as he is sensitive on his lower sides. He was Owner Relinquished because he'd bite the fingers of a 2 year old who would pester him. So, no kids, please. He weighs about 7-8lbs, is crate and leash trained. All of our adoptables are spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on shots and take monthly flea and heartworm prevention. Applications are available at or on our Facebook page - Critter Mama Rescue. Home and reference checks a must, fenced yard required on most pets.

About Critter Mama Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Our President - Robin Roberts has been an animal lover her entire life. Animals naturally gravitate to her. Over 2013 she gathered area friends and community professionals to create Critter Mama Rescue, Inc. There is a warm outpouring of support, media coverage and private donations who continue to support the mission of this business.

We primarily work with one local Vet, Dr. Mark Wallace - About Pets, Inc - to care for all of our dogs and puppies we've rescued. We do occasionally rescue and re-home Cats and kittens under special circumstances.

Our Community relationships are the cornerstone of our ability to rescue, vet and care for abandoned, owner relinquished and neglected animals and then find them good, safe forever homes.

All of our work is done with a few faithful volunteers. These wonderful people assist us at local fundraising events where we occasionally showcase our adoptable dogs. Without our volunteers, continual fundraising efforts, our Board of Directors, and our community of support, we could not be as successful as we are in our goals for our rescue needing love, care and forever homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We work primarily in the "South Shore" area of Tampa. To date we do not pull from local shelters for our Critters.
