Frequently Asked Questions About CDR
City Dogs Rescue + City Kitties
What is the mission of City Dogs Rescue?
City Dogs Rescue rescues dogs and cats from 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 dogs and cats that CDR 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 lives of both humans and their pets. We welcome help in any capacity, through volunteering, fostering, adopting and/or donating.
Is City Dogs Rescue a "shelter?"
City Dogs 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 dogs and cats in their homes. Since most of our available animals are living in the private homes, we cannot arrange a visit without an adoption application and an appointment with the foster family.
Is City Dogs Rescue a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization?
Yes. City Dogs Rescue is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and donations will be tax-deductible for federal income tax purposes.

How is City Dogs Rescue connected to City Dogs Daycare?
City Dogs Rescue is a nonprofit, separate organization from City Dogs Daycare. Dave Liedman, one of the owners of City Dogs Daycare, is also a director and president of City Dogs Rescue. City Dogs Daycare donates space to City Dogs Rescue to keep several foster dogs. Please do not contact the daycare for City Dogs Rescue matters. Contact us only through the avenues listed on this website.
