Additional Information: Meemo is a happy, friendly and wiggly little girl! She was rescued in terrible shape - severely matted and obviously neglected. Unfortunately she had already lost almost all of her teeth and the remaining tooth was rotten - that's why her tongue hangs out the way it does. She eats wet food just great! Adopters will need to be cautious of choking hazards when it comes to toys and treats, but otherwise a toothless dog is very manageable! She was so relieved when we removed the 3 lbs. of matted hair that was stuck to her body. She made sure to give everyone kisses!!! She had to be completely shaved down, but there doesn't seem to be any permanent damage done and her hair will grow back. Everyone who meets her falls in love with her precious eyes and resilient spirit. Despite everything she's been through, all she wants is love and snuggles. We can't wait to find her a forever home that will cherish this sweet girl!
If you are interested in meeting a dog, we require an adoption application. Visit www.citydogsrescuedc.org/adopt.html to apply. If a dog 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 dog has "NEEDS FOSTER" listed, they are still available for adoption. Information about our current dogs in need of fosters can be found here: www.citydogsrescuedc.org/current-dogs-in-need-of-a-foster.html and the application to foster is here: www.citydogsrescuedc.org/foster.html.
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 dogs (we do not operate under a first-come, first-served model).
Prior to arrival, all of our dogs are spayed/neutered (unless specified) and given shots for Rabies, Distemper DHPP, and Bordatella. They are tested for Heartworm, Lyme, Anaplasma, and Ehrlichia. They are dewormed at least twice and given a health check by the vet. Most dogs will have a house training accident in the initial days in their new home and we cannot guarantee any dog is housebroken or crate trained. Our adoption fee is $395 (including puppies) unless noted -- senior dogs are available for an adoption fee of $200.
We do our best to disclose all health records and known health conditions to adopters. Upon accepting a new cat or dog into the organization, we provide a basic vet visit that includes necessary vaccinations and health tests, but does not provide a comprehensive medical exam prior to adoption. As a result, sickness, injury, and disability may exist unbeknownst to CDR & CK. City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties is not responsible for payment of any vet care, including known and unknown medical conditions once a cat or dog is adopted from us.
We also update our Facebook page daily with new dogs.
