Additional Information: Playful and friendly Wilkes was inexplicably stood up at the altar when the family who said they would adopt him in West Virginia never showed up to retrieve him. It's impossible to imagine why when he's such a treat! With typical kitten energy, Wilkes' favorite things to do are play and get his belly rubbed. He loves toys like the Cat Dancer, feathers and birds on a stick in particular. He takes a little time getting to know you before he opens up, but once he does, he likes to choose the times he will be petted; he particularly likes to seek people out when he senses they're about to leave, at which point he becomes very affectionate. Wilkes prefers to have his chin scratched and tummy rubbed and has a very cute habit of rolling on his back while being pet. He likes to play peekaboo sometimes by running away from you and then peering out from behind couches and doors. When he's hungry he'll let you know by meowing and has a number of different favorite treats. In short, Wilkes would be a great addition to any family and deserves a human companion that will follow through on providing him with a forever home!
If you are interested in meeting a dog or cat, we require an adoption application. If the animal has "HAS APPLICATION" listed, they are still available to receive additional applications but also may be in the process of being adopted soon.

City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties 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&CK has a thorough adoption process in order to find the best possible fit for each of our dogs and cats (we do not operate under a first-come, first served model).
Adoption fees // Dogs - $395 (including puppies) unless noted; $200 for senior dogs // Cats - $150 (unless otherwise noted)
Upon accepting a new cat or dog into the organization, we provide a basic vet visit that includes necessary vaccinations, disease screenings, deworming, microchips, and spay/neuter (unless specified). We do 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.
Cat specific: Rabies, FVRCP, Feline Leukemia vaccines. They are tested for FIV and FeLV.
Dog specific: Rabies, DHPP, Bordatella vaccines. They are tested for HW, Lyme, Ehrlichia, Anaplasmosis.
Most cats and dogs will have a house training accident in the initial days in their new home and we cannot guarantee any pet is housebroken or crate trained.
We also update our Facebook page daily with new cats and dogs.
