Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation
Over 30,000 dogs and cats adopted since 2001, all spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Adoption events every weekend with same-day adoptions.
The Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation (LDCRF) 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. We also provide for those animals who need additional time and medical care before going to a new home.
While awaiting placement in permanent, loving homes, these animals stay either at our facility, the Lost Dog Ranch (on 61 acres in Sumerduck, VA), or in foster homes.
Each weekend, LDCRF conducts adoption events at Petsmarts in the DC-metro area. Our volunteers interview and educate prospective adopters on the importance of proper veterinary care, nutrition, exercise, and obedience training to ensure a successful adoption for everyone involved.
Another important role of LDCRF is to reach out and educate the general public on the plight of homeless animals, the benefits of adoption, and the importance of spaying/neutering your pet. We participate in various community activities and events to expand community awareness. As part of our community outreach and education program, LDCRF will conduct educational seminars at local schools, community centers, or other locations. These seminars may be scheduled upon request; for more information please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
