City Dogs & City Kitties Rescue rescues adoptable cats and dogs in overcrowded and high-kill shelters, where resources are severely limited. We offer a lifeline to as many of these wonderful animals as possible. Sadly, many of the cats and dogs that City Dogs & City Kitties Rescue takes are just days — and sometimes hours — away from being euthanized for no reason other than lack of space. By finding these animals permanent and loving homes in the DC metropolitan area, we can enrich the lives of humans and their pets. We welcome your help in any capacity, through volunteering, fostering, adopting, sponsoring and/or donating.
City Dogs & City Kitties Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is a "rescue" not a "shelter." We are made up of a network of volunteers (most with full-time jobs) who foster cats and dogs in their homes.
City Dogs & City Kitties Rescue has saved over 8,700 dogs and cats since we started in 2011. Every one of them has left little paw prints on our hearts, and we remember all of them fondly. We have an active alumni community and we're so grateful every time someone chooses to join the City Dogs & City Kitties family.
