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.

Puppy misadventure

My 8 month old lab puppy ate something and it required a trip to the vet. They administered peroxide to induce vomiting. He seemed unaffected by the entire experience and after waiting 45 minutes with no results, we were sent home. Naturally, he threw up in the car on the way home. I had recently bought the split rear seat cover. It saved the back seat of my car and cleaned up beautifully. I can only imagine how the cloth seat would have absorbed the odor and stain without the protection of the seat cover. Buying your seat cover was the smartest decision I've made. Love the hammock option.

XL rear seat hammock cover

I own a 2015 Toyota Tundra CrewMax. I was concerned that the XL seat cover wouldn't be big enough for our pups. However, after installing it easily, our pups took to it immediately! Ellie loved the hammock part that comes off the seat a little and slept in it on one of our most recent road trips.

Perfect Fit!

We had fallen back to just putting a sheet over our seats as our Bernese Mountain Dog and our cars never found a perfect match with any of the seat covers we tried until this front seat cover. We immediately put in an order for the backseat cover from 4Knines to give our BMD more room.
