With Artwork, DC Animal Rescue Looks to Spotlight the “Real Washington” with One-of-a-Kind Limited Edition Print Fundraiser

Vintage Style Print Titled “We are Home,” Created by Local Artist, to Raise Monies for New DC Operations and Intake Center

​(Washington, DC)- December 21, 2021- Are you a true animal lover or do you collect local art or maybe you are both? Then you are in luck.  This holiday season, the City Dogs and City Kitties Rescue (CDCK) in Washington, DC is offering a unique, limited-edition print (only 250 made) created by local artist David Labrozzi, titled “We are Home” and captures the joy and hope felt by newly rescued animals as they are welcomed into DC for placement into a permanent home. The vintage-style 24 X 36 unframed print, numbered and signed by the artist, is made on matte acid-free fine-art paper with archival pigment ink and can be purchased for $495 plus shipping. Proceeds will benefit CDCK’s Capital Campaign for an Operations and Intake Center in DC, for which CDCK has secured over 60% of the funding from over 1,000 donors. For more information about the capital campaign, visit and to order a print, visit

“Amid the clamor of partisan politics in the Nation’s Capital, it can be hard to imagine people in DC coming together. But there’s at least one thing that proudly unites most residents—a love of animals. Animal advocates are an integral part of DC’s community fabric, providing care, shelter, and hope to animals in need every day and saving lives every year through adoption programs. This print represents the joyful outcome of these efforts.  It also highlights the wonderful feeling of home experienced by so many DC residents – – animals and humans alike.”,” said Darren Binder, Co-Founder, City Dogs & City Kitties Rescue.
