Additional Information: Shaggy may be an older girl but she is no grump! She is a sweet playful girl who loves people. Shy at first, Shaggy returns all affection given to her. She's curious about the world and loves to explore the neighborhood on walks, greeting everyone she meets. After returning home she loves nothing more than cuddling on the couch while we watch TV. Shaggy loves getting pets and treats from her human. She will ensure your safety from the corner of the room: quietly watching and making sure you don't drop any food on the floor. Apply today to meet Shaggy the sweetheart!
*Shaggy is available for a senior adoption fee of $200.
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.
