About Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation


6801 Wilson Blvd, Falls Church, VA 22044, US

Mission Statement

The Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation (LDCRF), a 501 c (3) non-profit organization, is a highly dedicated group of volunteers that rescues abandoned or displaced dogs and cats from the threat of euthanasia by area shelters or other at-risk situations. Once in our care, these companion animals are fully vaccinated and spayed or neutered. Since its founding in 2001, over 45,000 animals' lives have been saved by finding them loving homes.


What Does Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Do?
LDCRF partners with shelters in rural areas of Virginia, Louisiana, North Carolina, Mississippi, and other states to save dogs and cats that are at high risk of being euthanized. These dogs and cats are kept in foster homes and at our Rescue Care Center in Falls Church, Virginia. Every weekend LDCRF holds 3-4 adoption events at PetSmart stores in Falls Church VA, Fair Lakes VA, Gaithersburg MD, and Sterling VA.

There are MANY ways to be a part of this life-saving mission:
GREET guests at our Rescue Care Center in Falls Church
DRIVE cats and dogs to vet appointments or adoption events
RAISE the profile of our orphaned pets; write compelling bios and market our dogs and cats
