Additional Information:

Callista is a loving, delightful pup! She was found as a stray with a heavy chain around her neck, but she is such a friendly, outgoing, happy dog despite what must she had been through. Callista's most defining quality is her happiness! She is always ready for any type of adventure or any new game or opportunity to play with you or another dog. She has a delightful puppy energy that is both goofy and endearing. She loves to have fun! Callista is also very friendly to the people and dogs she meets. She gets along very well with the resident dogs at her foster home. Callista is still learning her puppy manners, but seems very trainable. She would make a great addition to an active household or a home with a resident dog that would be happy with a playful sibling as Callista loves other dogs. Callista is a loyal and loving pup who is more than happy to cuddle after playtime and give you lots of kisses! Apply today to meet Callista!

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.

Apply for a DOG:

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. 

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.


About City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties

About Our Rescue Group...

City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties rescues adoptable dogs and cats in overcrowded and high-kill shelters, where resources are severely limited. We offer a lifeline to as many of these wonderful pups and kitties as possible.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Please complete an application or attend an adoption event to meet our pets. All our cats and dogs are located in foster homes throughout the Washington, DC metro area. We do not have a facility where you can meet our cats and dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

1. Application: Interested adopters should fill out an application for the cat(s) or dog(s) you are interested in. Only one application is required, and it applies for all cats or dogs listed on your application. If you are interested in adopting both a cat and a dog, you must complete an application for each type of animal.

Important Note Regarding Timing: We screen all applications to find what we believe will be the best environment for each particular cat or dog. If we believe that we currently have a potential match for you, our typical response time is within a week. If you do not receive a response within two weeks, please assume that we have not been able to find a good match. Please do not interpret a lack of response as a belief by City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties that you would not be able to provide a loving home for a cat or dog.

2. Applications Counselor: Approved Applicants will be assigned a volunteer applications counselor, who will review the application and have a brief conversation with each applicant to determine his/her needs and preferences.

3. Reference Checks: If applicable, CDR&CK will call the applicant’s veterinarian to ensure that previous pets have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated and well cared for. CDR&CK will also call personal references listed on the application.

4. Renters/Condo Owners: For renters, CDR&CK will check with an applicant's landlord to ensure that cats and/or dogs are permitted and that the cat or dog of interest wouldn’t violate any size or breed restrictions. We also review condo association rules regarding pets.
Home Visit: CDR&CK will visit each applicant’s home to see the environment where the cat or dog will live and answer any questions the applicant might have.

5. Adoption Contract: If the applicant is approved for adoption and decides to adopt the cat or dog, CDR&CK and the prospective adopter will enter into an adoption contract. The applicant will be required to pay an adoption fee, which helps cover our costs from spay/neutering (if age appropriate), microchipping, vaccinations and any other veterinary attention needed while in our care.
