City Dogs & City Kitties Rescue
Location301 H St NESTE BWashington, DC 20002 United States
City Dogs & City Kitties Rescue (CDCK) rescues adoptable animals in overcrowded, under-resourced, rural kill shelters. We offer a lifeline to as many of these wonderful animals as possible. Many of the cats and dogs that CDCK rescues are just days -- and sometimes hours -- away from being euthanized for no reason other than lack of space. By finding these animals permanent and loving homes in the DC metropolitan area, we enrich the lives of both humans and animals.
VISION CDCK envisions a world where all dogs and cats live in forever and loving homes free from neglect, abuse, and abandonment.
- A passionate commitment to rescuing homeless dogs and cats and placing them in loving, forever homes where both the pets and adopters will thrive.
- The importance of ending dog and cat overpopulation, and the right of animals to be free from cruelty, neglect, and abuse.
- The ability to provide high-quality medical care to rescued dogs and cats in a manner that still allows us to be good stewards of our precious resources.
- Dedication to building a strong foster and alumni network to support our dedicated volunteers and adopters.
- A desire to create cooperative relationships with other community organizations in order to further our mission
- A recognition that volunteers are the very heart of our organization. We value the time and energy that each volunteer gives to CDCK and to the animals in our care, and we hope to cultivate their creativity and enthusiasm to further our mission.
