Additional Information: Little love-bug Helen has a uniquely shaped face that suggests she may be part Scottish Fold. She's a bit tentative with new people at first, but as soon as she feels comfortable she goes back to being her usual bold, playful and affectionate little self. Still charmingly kittenish in her behavior; she's playful and daring, nonetheless she's diligent about only scratching on appropriate posts and scratchers. After some initial hissing at her foster's large resident tomcat, she now regards him as her favorite cushion and instigates play sessions with him like she's his pint-sized boss.
Helen is also super cuddly and loves being next to – or even better -- on top of her human. With her striking eyes, she has the sweetest range of “what about me?” facial expressions she gives when she wants to be petted; she will not be denied! If you're looking for a playful, loving kitty, look no further than Helen!
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/puppies - $395; $200 for senior dogs // Cats/kittens - $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.
