Volunteering for City Dogs Rescue
City Dogs Rescue is an volunteer-led organization that is an active part of the DC community. We regularly have adoption and fundraising activities at local bars, stores, and community festivals in neighborhoods throughout DC. We have a need for many types of volunteers to help with adoptions, dog intake, fundraising, photography, social media, and several other areas. Volunteering for CDR is a great way to help dogs, meet new people, and all-around just have a good time.
