Additional info: Lizzy is a 45 pound, 3 year old Cattle Dog Mix.  From her Foster:

"Lizzy is the easiest dog I've ever met. She is potty-trained, sleeps through the night, does not need the crate, and doesn't bark. She is chill as could be, switching between the bed and the couch depending where the humans are in the house. She's a snuggly cuddlebug and prefers to sleep with her head on a pillow beside her human(s). Although she hasn't chewed anything, she does "collect treasures" so often when I return from work there are toys and shoes surrounding her on the bed. She does not seem very bone or toy motivated, but enjoys meal times. Her little nub tail goes a mile a minute when she gets excited. I expect Lizzy would be excellent for a family with small children and probably even cats. She loves getting loved on by anyone and everyone!"

Mission Statement: Forever true to “The Underdog”, Rural Dog Rescue is dedicated to saving the lives of dogs in shelters who are often overlooked for adoption or rescue. We save the dogs who are at most risk of being euthanized: the hounds, the black dogs, the seniors, the sick and the broken.  We make a commitment to reserve a minimum of 50% of the dogs we save to The Underdog.  Root For The Underdog!

 

Rural Dog Rescue's home base is in Washington, DC. We adopt to the Washington, DC metropolitan area to include Maryland and Northern Virginia. We support several high kill shelters that euthanize in 72 hours and whose kill rate is 70% or higher in rural areas of Virginia, West Virginia, North and South Carolina.  Rural Dog Rescue also helps dogs in need in Washington, DC and Maryland.

 

We are 100% volunteer and foster based and no salaries are paid.  100% of your donation and adoption fee goes to helping the dogs and cats of Rural Dog Rescue.


Although we try to be as accurate as possible, Rural Dog Rescue cannot guarantee the breed or full-grown adult size of any of the dogs or puppies in its care. Because many of these dogs were found as strays or are the result of irresponsible, unplanned breeding, we do not know the dog's exact background and can only list breed and size by our best educated guess. If exact breed and size are important to you, please consider adopting a dog from a specific breed rescue - We want our dogs to be adopted by people who will love and care for them forever for who they are - no matter what breed and size they turn out to be! All dogs go to their new homes spayed or neutered, up to date on all shots, wormed (although a 2nd worming may be required), started on heart worm and flea and tick preventative and sometimes microchipped.



Adoption Application:  http://bit.ly/adoptrdr

Foster Application: http://bit.ly/rdrfosterapp

Adoption Process: In order to adopt, we require an adoption application. After you submit an application, if you pass the screening, we will contact you to schedule a phone interview. We will call your references, including your veterinarian and landlord (when appropriate). We will also conduct a home visit. After these steps are complete, you will be approved to adopt a dog. Please note this process takes 1-2 weeks so applications submitted when you are ready to bring a dog home within that time frame. You can meet our adoptable dogs at events, however, we cannot guarantee that dogs at events do not have pre-approved applicants meeting them there as well, so the application is the best way to start the process.
