City Dogs Rescue has many great partnerships with shelters from Virginia to as far away as South Carolina. One of the sad truths is that many hounds at risk of euthanasia are right in DC’s backyard of Virginia. Hounds are often dumped after hunting season for reasons like "I'll buy a new one next season" or "She wouldn't hunt". The females are often used for breeding and thrown away. There are so many rural shelters where hounds wait for weeks and months without a single chance of adoption. It is always so amazing to me that sometimes we will “pull” a dog to safety with our rescue and within minutes of being posted on our website that dog will have an adoption application.
With the holidays coming up, I decided I would try out my first foster dog. Enter Georgie the Redtick Coonhound. Georgie seemed like a nice, quiet boy who needed some love. When he first arrived, he was a little apprehensive, but he spent every waking minute snuggling with on the couch.
To save more hounds and other dogs, what we need most is most fosters. Please check out our Foster Page and apply to foster using our Online Application.
