Our Partners in Rescue

Featured Partner:  Pacers Running Stores

Pacers Running Stores and Pacers Events have partnered several times with LDCRF for the good of the animals. This summer we are looking forward to the LOST DOG 5K SERIES every Friday night in August at Bluemont Park in Arlington. Proceeds will benefit Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation and a good time is sure to be had by all.

Veterinary Partners

Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation works with a number of veterinary hospitals and spay/neuter clinics to ensure all of our animals are fully vetted and ready for adoptions. Our vet partners are vital to our continued existence and we appreciate all of their efforts on the behalf of homeless animals.

The majority of our dogs and cats are taken care of by the competent staff at  Blue Ridge Veterinary Associates, in Purcellville, VA.  As a 24-7, full-service veterinary hospital, Blue Ridge is always there when we need them, no matter what we need. Their wide range of experience means that even our farm animals benefit from their care.

Dr. Tommy Walker of DC Vets, Incorporated handles any complex surgical needs our dogs and cats may present.

Loudoun Cat Care of Leesburg, VA caters to our felines who need a quiet place to recuperate and rehabilitate.

Virginia Kincheloe Spay / Neuter Clinic of Fredericksburg handles a number of our spay/neuter surgeries each week.

Restaurants to the Rescue!

Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation is the culmination of a long love-affair with animals on the part of two Northern Virginia restaurant owners, Pam McAlwee and Ross Underwood. Sixteen years after opening the Lost Dog Cafe in North Arlington, the pair formalized their ongoing rescue work into the creation of  the non-profit corporation, Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation. Since then, both the rescue and the business have grown. Now the Lost Dog family includes The Stray Cat Cafe in North Arlington and two Lost Dog Cafe franchises- one in South Arlington and the soon to be opened Lost Dog Cafe in McLean. All of the restaurants in the Lost Dog Family support our rescue efforts.

The original Lost Dog Cafe on N Washington Boulevard in Arlingon is where it all began!  You can purchase LDCRF t-shirts (as well as cafe t-shirts) at the North Arlington location and rest assured that while you get your pizza fix you are also helping LDCRF get some dogs fixed! Original artwork on the walls by local artist Jessica Lovelace features some of our alumni and favorite family pets.
The Stray Cat Cafe is feline themed and all the photos on the wall are of cats that were up for adoption with LDCRF (and have since been adopted) when the cafe opened in 2005. Looking at the photos while munching on sweet potato fries, you don’t have to think hard about how your meal is helping animals.

The Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit charitable corporation founded in 2001 whose primary purpose is to rescue dogs and cats from euthanasia in overcrowded shelters. Contributions are tax deductible.
