Astrid is the epitome of a sweet, snuggly, friendly dog. She loves other animals and people. Astrid seems happiest out in the neighborhood meeting other people and dogs, snuggled up by your side, or just lounging in her dog bed. Astrid is a low- key pup who enjoys sleeping during the day when she’s not out for walks exploring new smells. Astrid is also very loyal and will follow her fosters around the house. That is not to say that she isn’t perfectly content being in a room by herself relaxing. Astrid is also a smart girl who’s learning to “sit” and “come”. Astrid is friendly, well-trained, and so affectionate she will make a great companion. Astrid is heartworm positive and will need to undergo heartworm treatment, facilitated by City Dogs Rescue, once she is adopted. Apply today to meet Astrid!
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 with new pets daily.
