Cornell is amazing! First of all, he's so adorable! He has stubby little legs and cute little spots everywhere. His head is too big for his body and he has big paws, so he always looks like a little puppy even though he's an adult. Cornell is so affectionate! He loves to hug everyone he meets (for real, he'll stand on his feet and put his little arms around you). He likes to follow his fosters around and nap by their feet when they are at the desk. So far he has not met a single dog or person he hasn’t loved. Be prepared to be loved forever if you adopt this little guy! Also, Cornell is very smart! He learned the commands "sit" and "down" within 24 hrs. Apply today to meet Cornell!
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
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.
