City Dogs & City Kitties Rescue rescues adoptable cats and dogs in overcrowded and high-kill shelters, where resources are severely limited. We offer a lifeline to as many of these wonderful animals as possible. Sadly, many of the cats and dogs that City Dogs & City Kitties Rescue takes are just days — and sometimes hours — away from being euthanized for no reason other than lack of space. By finding these animals permanent and loving homes in the DC metropolitan area, we can enrich lives of humans and their pets. We welcome your help in any capacity, through volunteering, fostering, adopting, sponsoring and/or donating.

City Dogs & City Kitties Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is a "rescue" not a "shelter." We are made up of a network of volunteers (most with full-time jobs) who foster cats and dogs in their homes. Since most of our available animals are living in private homes, we cannot arrange a visit without an adoption application and an appointment with the foster family.

City Dogs & City Kitties Rescue has saved over 8,700 dogs and cats since we started in 2011. We have over 50,000 loyal followers on our Facebook page, over 7,000 members in our Facebook adopter and volunteer groups, and almost 16,000 followers on our Instagram page. Our auction will regularly have over 60,000 page views which brings great exposure to a number of businesses.

Further, City Dogs & City Kitties Rescue was:  

  - Voted Best Non-Profit in Washington CityPaper's Readers' Poll for the last six years.

   -Chosen for inclusion in the Catalogue for Philanthropy as "one of the best" community-based nonprofit organizations in the Washington, D.C. area.

   -Recognized for our strong community of volunteers and highly successful social media efforts on numerous sites, including the Washington Post, Washingtonian, The Wall Street Journal, and Good Morning America.

This year our online auction will take place from October 3 to 11.

“BEST CHARITY EVENT” IN CITY PAPER’S BEST OF DC 2021 POLL: The City Dogs & City Kitties online auction showcases artists, restaurants, theaters, and small businesses from across the DC metropolitan area. From wine tasting in Virginia's rolling hills to sessions with expert pet photographers, we hope you find new products and experiences you love while helping to rescue and care for dogs and cats from overcrowded, under-resourced, and high-kill shelters.

This auction is vital for us to have funds to help dogs and cats who are in dire need. A huge thank-you to the generous donors and hard-working volunteers who contributed to this auction. We encourage the City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties community to support these pet-friendly businesses and artisans in the future.
