It’s Critter Mama  to the RescueBC_crittermamalogo

Ruskin resident, Robin Roberts always took in animals to find homes for, but now she’s making a full-time effort. It’s called Critter Mama Rescue; she’s the Critter Mama. “As a kid, I always had dogs growing up and groomed my family’s poodles when I was in seventh grade,” she said. “I raised two litters of puppies and found homes for them.”

In the late 1980’s, Roberts bought a male English springer spaniel. The following year she purchased a female and intended to mate them. Taking matters into their own hands and 60 days later, she had nine huge puppies to find homes for. After that Roberts took AKC dog obedience training and became certified to teach companion dogs. She signed up to foster rescued springer spaniels and continued training dogs.

In 2009, she moved to Ruskin with her cocker spaniel and two cats to marry Art DeAngelis. Roberts took on several part-time jobs, walking dogs, rescuing and placing. Critter Mama Rescue was born and Roberts found her calling. She is now officially a nonprofit organization and continues to rescue and adopt out.  Adoption fees start at $150 and if an animal is not spayed or neutered, Roberts will board them until either procedure and micro chipping is done. She uses a nonprofit vet and passes along his discounted rates to the owner

To contact Roberts, make a donation, or learn more about her rescue service, email robinin ruskin@gmail.com or visit Critter Mama Rescue on Facebook.
