Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Last Chance Animal Rescue operates in Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia. We primarily take in cats from more than 40 high-kill shelters in five states and provide disaster-relief services for small pets. We partner with 30 PetSmart and Petco stores in the region and provide full service in-store cat adoptions at regional PetSmarts. We adopt dogs from our main rescue in Waldorf, MD and from the Potomac Yards PetSmart in Alexandria, VA every Saturday.
We have a daily dog adoption event at the Alexandria PETCO from noon to 7 p.m. (till 6 pm on Sundays) and post a daily list of adoptable animals going to that event to our FaceBook page every morning: www.facebook.com/LCARMD Alexandria Petco is located at 6612 Richmond Hwy., Alexandria VA 22306.
In addition, we hold two other Satuday dog adoption events; one at our rescue in Waldorf, Maryland and one at the Potomac Yards PetSmart located at 3351 Jefferson Davis Highway #10 Alexandria, VA 22305. We post a Saturday dog event list to our Facebook page on Friday afternoons. That list has the event locations, times, addresses and a list of pups going to each event. http://www.facebook.com/LCARMD
For cats the $150 adoption fee is a donation that covers the cat having been altered, vaccinated (age appropriate), tested for feline leukemia and feline aids, dewormed, deflead and demited.
Our cats may not be declawed and must be indoor only.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
