Additional Information:

Bentley is a happy, bouncy, energetic boy. He’s got a big personality to match the huge smile on his face. Bentley is not big into boundaries or personal space – he’ll invade your heart even as he takes over your couch. This affectionate boy loves lying on top of you. When he sleeps, Bentley likes to stay connected by keeping a gentle paw on you as he snores. During the day, he brims with energy – springing up the stairs to the front door after a walk, or prancing on his front paws if he really, really wants what your eating.


Bentley’s philosophy in life is that things are always a lot more fun when you’re together with friends. Quite the social bee, Bentley is working on containing his excitement and not jumping when he greets new people. At the dog park, he does great with other dogs, though sometimes he doesn’t pay attention to where he’s racing and might knock over a smaller dog. With some additional training, he can become more careful.


At the end of the day, Bentley is a big, friendly, gentle boy who thinks he is a lap dog and will give you kisses to show his love. Who wouldn’t want a sweet, perpetually cheerful pal like Bentley at their side to spend time with? Apply today to meet Bentley!

**Bentley was graciously sponsored by Lauren Bocskocsky and Patrick McNamara for their upcoming wedding. Thank you, Lauren and Patrick!

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.


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.
