Additional Information: Dark beauty Annabelle has weaned her kittens and is now ready to be taken care of and pampered herself in a loving forever home. Rescued in the nick of time from Southeastern North Carolina, Annabelle expresses her thanks by being an incredibly sweet, friendly, affectionate and silly little girl. She loves men and women equally and would enjoy playing with another cat. With or without a feline companion, however, Annabelle is great at occupying herself when her humans are away due to her curiosity and love of toys, balls, scratchers and blankets. She'll sit for the longest time watching the washing machine or looking out the window onto the outside world. However no matter how enthralling those activities are, Annabelle loves people most of all. As soon as her people come home she'll run to the door to be picked up and carried around.

Annabelle is that rare cat who actually adores belly rubs. In fact, she'd rather have a belly rub than a food treat! Attentive to her people, she prefers to be chilling in the same room, often on or next to them and likes to give out kisses. Generally very quiet, when she chooses to talk Annabelle has the most adorable little voice. She's excellent at using a scratching post, but on the very rare occasion that she becomes interested in furniture, a quick spray of water deters her.

In short, Annabelle will be a wonderfully loyal companion for someone who can appreciate her sweet personality; is that person you? Please apply to adopt Annabelle today!

If you are interested in meeting a cat, we require an adoption application. Visit to apply. If a cat has "HAS APPLICATION" listed, they are still available to receive additional applications but also may be in the process of being adopted soon.


If a cat has "NEEDS FOSTER" listed, they are still available for adoption. Information about fostering and our current cat foster needs can be found here:

City Dogs Rescue is a foster based rescue in Washington, DC. We do not have a shelter. We focus on local adoptions in DC and the metro area of Maryland and Virginia. CDR has a thorough adoption process in order to find the best possible fit for each of our animals (we do not operate under a first-come, first-served model).

Our cat adoption fee is $150 unless noted. Prior to arrival, all of our cats are spayed/neutered (unless specified) and given shots for Rabies, FVRCP, and Feline leukemia. They are microchipped and tested for FIV and FeLV. They are dewormed at least twice and given a health check by the vet.

If you are interested in meeting this dog, please visit:


City Dogs Rescue is a rescue, not a shelter, and our dogs are located in temporary foster homes in the Washington, DC metro region.  Adoption fee, home visit, and application required.

About City Dogs Rescue DC

About Our Rescue Group...

City Dogs Rescue was formed for one reason: to rescue adoptable dogs in overcrowded and high-kill shelters where resources are severely limited. We want to offer a lifeline to as many of these wonderful pups as possible. Sadly, nearly all of the dogs that City Dogs Rescue 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. We are excited to embark on this journey, and we welcome your help in any capacity – through volunteering, fostering, adopting, and/or donating.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All our dogs are located in Washington, DC either in foster homes or at City Dogs. Please email us to schedule a visit!

Our Adoption Process...

1. Fill out an Adoption Application.
2. We will have a brief conversation with you to determine your needs and preferences, find out about your daily schedule, and talk about your previous experience, if any, with pets.
3. If applicable, we will call your veterinarian to ensure that previous pets have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and well cared for. We may also call references listed on your application.
4. For renters, we’ll check with your landlord to ensure that dogs are permitted and that the dog that you’re adopting wouldn’t violate any size or breed restrictions.
5. We will visit your home to see the environment where the dog will live and answer any questions you might have. This is a great opportunity for you to get valuable input on how to integrate your new pet into your home.
6. Finally, we will enter into an adoption contract, and you will be required to pay an adoption fee which covers spay/neutering*, microchipping, vaccinations, and first initial vet visit.
7. Most importantly, enjoy life with your new companion!

* If you are adopting a puppy, depending on the age of the puppy she/he may not yet be spayed/neutered. In this case, you will be required to schedule an appointment for the spay/neuter procedure for your new companion and sign an agreement in which you agree to spay/neuter your pet within a certain number of days.
