I have volunteered with Lost Dog, and in January adopted my wonderful dog, Lacey , from this super organization. They are a wonderful group, giving the best care and attention to animals in need of loving homes.

On my 7th year as foster & event dog handler. I continue to enjoy working with the other volunteers and learning more about the rescue process and of course the loving pups.

Lost Dog and Cat Foundation has placed over 17,000 dogs and cats in forever homes since their inception Every weekend is full of volunteers working 10 adoption events trying to place the right animal with the right family for success.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Working with potential adopters to choose a dog that is the right fit for their lifestyle and family. Taking care of dogs by fostering until they find their forever home. Adopting my sweet Basset hound 5 years ago.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find ways to generate more donations to enable this organization to save more animals from high kill shelters.

Lost Dog and Cat Foundation has placed over 17,000 dogs and cats in forever homes since their inception 10years ago. Every weekend is full of volunteers working many adoption events trying to put the right animal with the right family for success. It is rewarding to feel the love that happens when a family takes one of our wonderful animals home. This is the positive organization and I am proud to do my little part.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the smiling faces of the family when they fall in love with one of our animals and hearing the success stories the adopters report after adoptions.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

more foster families.

I have been volunteering with Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation for many years. First as a handler at adoption events and then started fostering dogs as well. My experience with LDCRF is nothing but positive. The rescue is run very professionally. The volunteers and board members truly care for the welfare of animals. From saving hounds burned in a fire to working with the Humane Society taking in animals from bad situation and getting them ready for their own forever homes, I cannot give them enough praise.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The number of animals who find forever homes. Over 12000 since inception. Also, the success stories, both in person and the letters posted from adopters on how the animals have improved their lives.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand it..I know one organization cannot save all the animals being killed in shelters every year, but Lost Dog and Cat Rescue is a role model that should be followed across the country.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing animals go to wonderful forever homes

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Caring and professional.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Save more animals from being killed in overcrowded animal shelters

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to spend working with this group.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

having enough foster homes

One thing I'd also say is that...

I am proud to say I volunteer with Lost Dog and Cat Rescue

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

I am a foster mom with LCDRF now for close to 3 years. I CHOSE Lost Dog to become a foster with over a lot of other rescues and agencies after doing extensive work. Because LCDRF takes exceptional care of its dogs/cats. It committed to finding the right match between human and companion; no matter how long. LCDRF is a top notch rescue, I am proud/honored to be associated with. And thoroughly enjoy every moment I spend volunteering and fostering pups!

This is a top notch organization. They run handfuls of adoption events in the DC area, and all are organized very well. If a family is interested in a pet from the website, they coordinate and make sure that pet will be at the location the family requests to view the pet. The animals are very well cared for, and many pets available for adoption also have the pleasure of staying in a foster home (where they are spoiled and loved!) until they find their forever home. I recommend this organization to anyone looking for a furry companion and I also recommend it for anyone looking to volunteer somewhere.

I really enjoy working with LDCRF. I volunteer at adoption events, I help as a caretaker in one of the PetSmart adoption centers where we have cats in residence, I foster cats and kittens and get great advice and support in all those endeavors. I also know that I'm genuinely helping save the lives of animals by doing it. This group is happy to have volunteers who have a lot of time to give, or just a little... weekly or monthly or less frequently... what you can give, they will find a way to make the contribution meaningful.

I really like that the relationship between LDCRF and animals and adopters doesn't end when pets and people walk out the door. Rescuing these dogs and cats is important enough that the rescue remains a safety net even once the adoption is complete.

I've adopted two (of my five) cats, Petals & Zuzu, from LDCRF and my parents adopted their dog, Nate. I've introduced my brother, my partner, two friends and a neighbor and her daughter to volunteer opportunities that continue today.

Lost dog is an amazing non profit that helps strays animals who have been abused or neglected find forever loving homes. It lights up my life when I help a pet a home or even give it some attention. These people go far and beyond driving over 4 hours to our paid veterinarian hospital as much as three times a week, completely voluntary! We give love and attention to the dogs who know no love. These pets fill our lives with joy and give us so much, so why not give them the love they deserve. Lost dog can only save lives through donations and volunteer work. Not only do they save these pets lives but also they help enrich the new forever homes family's lives.

This organization is wonderful, with amazing people who volunteer, foster, and do the grunt work. I'm always happy to praise Lost Dog, and sing their praises far and wide! I adopted Lex from LDCRF in 2007, and I've been volunteering since 2011.

This orginazation and it's owner consistantly puts the animals first over thier personal lives and desires. As you mett these animaqls who have been rescued from nearly certain deth at some rural shelter and see the greatfulness and love in thier eyes you know you are helpng t save a life. Then to see them go home with thier new owners wh seem to have found a new family member you know you have made a impact not only in the life of the animal but also in the life of the new owner/family.

Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation brings the community together in the common goal to proactively increase awareness and outreach to lost and abandoned animals. In so doing, they bring kind souls together and magnetize volunteer actions in every aspect of life. Although their main outreach is animal rescue, they accomplish more than that: personal friendship, genuine generosity and warm support among theircharitable volunteers. It is a total volunteer experience that accomplishes animal rescue through the human experience of extending far past what one would think possible. Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation makes a difference in the way we live. My life is richer because of it.

I love Lost Dog and Cat Rescue. My volunteer experience with them is life changing. In a world sometimes effected by abuse and social injustice, it is incredibly rewarding to make a difference to help change the destiny of those forgotten and dismissed by society. I would recommend to anyone the experience of volunteerism through Lost Dog to help themselves by helping to change the life of unwanted animals. Lost Dog provides a caring service to both animals and people alike. I commend them for their loving presence in the community.
