Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Volunteer as a dog handler at an adoption event! We can only bring as many dogs as we have handlers, and the more dogs we can bring, the more can find a home!

Geographic areas served: DC Maryland and Virginia

Programs: We have a foster program, where members of the community can help by taking an animal into their home while it waits to be adopted! It helps by providing the animal with an advocate who can help tell potential adopters more about the dog. It also helps dogs that do not do well in our kennel environment.

Our volunteer program is a great service not only to the dogs and cats, but also those in need of service hours.
We are always in need of volunteers to help at our adoption events, and it provides a great experience for those who want to help animals in need outside a shelter environment.

Mission:
The Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation (LDCRF) is a non-profit organization that is actively involved in taking in and finding new, loving homes for at risk cats and dogs. In this process, LDCRF ensures that these companion animals are temperament tested, current on all necessary vaccinations, and either spayed or neutered prior to becoming available for adoption.

Once adopted, LDCRF enters into a contractual relationship with the adoptive family to ensure that the animal is properly cared for, and conducts follow ups to ensure this. LDCRF conducts public adoption events at area Petsmarts on weekends. These events are staffed by volunteers who interview prospective adopters, answer questions about the animals, and take advantage of the opportunity to educate the public on the benefits of spaying and neutering; the need to obtain proper veterinary care; and of providing basic obedience training to their pets.
Results:
-Since 2001, LDCRF has placed over 17,000 dogs and cats in homes

-ALL of our animals are spayed/neutered prior to becoming available for adoption

Adopted an amazing dog, only to find that he had numerous parasite infections that were over looked by the staff. This dog has had explosive, blood diarrhea since we got him, yet they never even did a fecal test on him. Their quality standards have fallen just to get more dogs in and out, but ... more »
