Adopt a dog and gain a friend for life
City Dogs Rescue is a 501(c)(3) animal rescue that was founded by City Dogs Daycare owner Dave Liedman and other volunteer community members. City Dogs Rescue began by using excess boarding capacity to give temporary homes to shelter dogs until they are adopted. City Dogs Rescue has grown tremendously, often with 100 dogs available for adoption primarily housed in volunteer foster homes. 50 to 70 dogs on average are now adopted out to forever homes each month, thanks to countless volunteers.
What is the mission of City Dogs Rescue?
City Dogs Rescue rescues dogs from crowded kill-shelters, where resources are severely limited, offering a lifeline to as many of these wonderful pups as possible. Sadly, many of the dogs that CDR takes in are just days – and sometimes hours – away from being euthanized for no reason other than lack of space. By finding these dogs permanent and loving homes in the DC metropolitan area, we can enrich lives – both human and canine. CDR welcomes help in any capacity through volunteering, fostering, adopting and donating.
City Dogs Rescue is operated primarily by volunteers working in their spare time. It is a separate organization from City Dogs Daycare with it’s own administrative office. Dogs are housed in volunteer foster homes, and can only be visited after completion and approval of an adoption application. Please do not direct rescue related inquiries to the daycare.
