Since 2011, CDR has provided a lifeline to more than 3,700 dogs and 1,500 cats – animals that were just days or hours away from being euthanized for no reason other than lack of space. Working closely with high-kill shelters in rural communities with few resources, CDR rescues at-risk adoptable dogs and cats and finds them loving homes. Once a dog or cat is identified, a vast network of supporters (50,000+) raises funds for transportation to DC and for top-quality medical care, vaccinations, and spay/neutering procedures. A trained foster care provider offers companionship until a permanent home is found, usually thanks to social media campaigns, dynamic adoption events, or CDR’s popular volunteer dog-walking program. Demand for these services is huge … and so are the rewards. You can save a companion animal's life and bring unconditional love into a home today.
