Additional Information: Sky is extremely sweet, and is great with people. Smartie-pants Sky knows the commands “sit,” “stay,” “lay,” “down,” and “paw”. Sky is great on walks, understanding when it’s time to walk and when she can stop and sniff. She's got the “lab lean” down pat, and wants nothing more than love and pets. Sometimes her desire for play and attention can be a little too exuberant, and she is learning that playful nibbles aren't the way to go. Sky’s favorite pastimes include laying on her back getting belly rubs or chewing on her benebone. She is an easy-going, laid back dog who can relax most of the day, but she also has the energy for running a marathon at the dog park or chasing a ball. This funny girl wishes she were a lap dog, and sometimes she’ll decide to plunk down in her favorite person’s lap anyway! Apply today to adopt darling Sky!

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).
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.
