City Dogs & City Kitties Rescue (CDCK) was formed in 2011 to save adoptable pets in overcrowded and high-kill shelters where resources are severely limited. Many of these dogs are days or even hours from being euthanized when CDCK steps in and offers them a lifeline.
Unlike a shelter facility, our rescue relies on foster homes to care for our dogs until they are adopted. By finding these dogs permanent and loving homes in the DC area, we enrich both canine and human lives. Foster parents help us learn more about a cat or dog's personality, temperament, and training level so that we can match them with the right forever home. We truly wouldn't be able to save these lives without our foster families!
We request that you commit to a minimum of two weeks but prefer if you can foster until adoption. This time period varies but averages about two months.
What Does a Foster Do?
As a foster parent, you provide a home, food, bed and TLC. We ask that you bring your foster dog to at least two adoption events per month. We also host cat adoption events from time to time. City Dogs & City Kitties Rescue pays for all pre-approved vetting during the foster period and provides basic supplies (including a collar, harness, leash and crate for dogs). Your foster dog or kitty provides lots of love, tail wags, snuggles, and kisses!
Are you convinced yet?
