February Charity Spotlight on Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation

By 4Knines Staff. | Giving Back

Since 2001, The Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation has saved the lives of more than 30,000 dogs and cats, most of whom were facing euthanasia at over-crowded municipal shelters. Envisioning a world free of homeless, neglected, or abused pets, Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation (LDCRF) works to match great people with homeless pets by facilitating open, friendly adoptions. By removing unnecessary barriers that prevent adoption, LDCRF offers same day adoptions with two-week trial periods. LDCRF strives to make the adoption process a positive experience for all involved.

The Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation was organized by Pam McAlwee and Ross Underwood, restaurant owners from Arlington, VA. Pam and Ross formalized their efforts to save homeless pets in their community by purchasing 63 acres Sumerduck, VA and building The Lost Dog Ranch. This kennel facility for homeless pets offers ample outdoor space for dogs and a cage-free “cat cabin” for rescued cats.

A small paid staff provides direct care to animals at the Lost Dog Ranch, but LDCRF is mostly run by a team of dedicated volunteers. Volunteer foster homes care for many animals while some cats are housed at Petsmart Cat Adoption Centers. LDCRF fully vaccinates and spays/neuters every pet prior to placing them in the hands of an adoptive family. In addition, LDCRF makes a lifetime commitment their rescues by accepting animals back into their care should the need arise.

Each weekend, LDCRF hosts adoption events at area PetSmart and PetCo stores. To ensure a successful adoption for everyone involved, volunteers interview and educate prospective adoptive families on the importance of proper veterinary care, nutrition, exercise, and obedience training. LDCRF also educates the general public on the plight of homeless animals, the benefits of adoption, and the importance of spaying/neutering.

The Lost Dog & Cat Rescue is always looking for some great volunteers - kids and teens are encouraged to apply! There are some unique volunteer opportunities, including photography, grant writing, transportation, and social media assistance. Each month, the 4Knines blog spotlights a fabulous animal advocacy group and makes a monetary donation to support their efforts. We are proud to showcase the efforts of The Lost Dog & Cat Rescue. We hope you will take some time to learn more about this organization by visiting their website and Facebook pages.

The best evaluations of our products come from the people who’ve bought them.

great cover

This is actually a replacement for my original 4 knines cover which was 4 years old. I used it daily (bringing my pup to work with me) and washed it weekly, so the backing finally started to flake apart and come off. This newer version is easier to put over the headrests, great improvement in the strap and closures. Also the best improvement is the side flaps, the old cover didn't have these. These flaps help to catch the dirt from dogs feet when they are jumping up into the car, instead of it going on the side of the seat.

Split Rear Dog Seat Cover - Fitted - No Hammock

I had ordered this item from an on-line site and was extremely disappointed when I received the wrong item. I was impressed with the quality of the seat cover and decided to contact 4Knines directly. I placed my order with Maggie and received the Split Rear Dog Seat Cover within three days. The seat cover fits nicely in my new Honda CR-V and as stated by 4Knines, is very easy to install and remove. My 8-month old labradoodle Brodie likes the comfort, and friends agree with him. Great quality item, reasonably priced, and outstanding customer service. Thanks 4Knines.

New truck seat cover and side panels

I really do like the seat cover and door side panels. The side panels are a must as the Beagle mix puts her feet on the doors. Every now and again someone comes up with a nice product that works well, has quality in its materials, and is well engineered. These are those. I am super satisfied.

Great fit, Great look, Stays in Place

I really like the look of this cover on my front bucket seat. You can't tell it's to protect the seat from the dog! It's very nice looking and fits great. Most importantly, it stays in place! My dog is wiggly, up and down, looking out the windows; and this seat cover doesn't mind. Do make sure you watch the video and carefully follow the installation instructions. I did not at first; and Support was Wonderful in helping me figure out what I was doing incorrectly.
