Five years ago, three people joined forces to bring one dog from Georgia, where he was just about to be euthanized, to DC, where he was adopted into a loving home within a week. More than 2,500 dogs and 200 cats later, City Dogs Rescue is known as the place to go when pet adoption is in view. Here’s why. Working closely with high-kill shelters in rural communities with few resources, City Dogs finds at-risk adoptable dogs and cats and saves their lives. Once a dog or cat is identified, a vast network of Facebook supporters (46,000+) raises funds for transportation to DC and for top-quality medical care, vaccinations, and spay/neutering procedures. The pet has the companionship of a trained foster care provider until a permanent home is found – usually thanks to social media campaigns, dynamic adoption events, or the popular volunteer dog-walking program (for which dogs wear stylish “adopt me!” vests). The demand for rescue services is huge – and so are the rewards. Your support saves a pet's life and brings unconditional love into a home today.
