About Us

About us

We are a small 501c3 nonprofit foster-based dog rescue located just north of Washington DC. We have placed over six hundred rescue dogs in the past ten years. Unlike some of the large DC-based rescues, we don’t discriminate against dogs because of their breed or what they look like, and we focus on rescuing local dogs from our local shelters that would otherwise be euthanized.

All of our rescue dogs are either in foster care in Maryland within 30 minutes of Washington DC, or in boarding in a facility about one hour north of DC.

Our mission. Our mission is to rescue as many friendly local dogs as possible and place them in loving forever homes.

Our story. Over ten years ago, our rescue’s founder, decided to start rescuing dogs when her beloved Jack Russell Terrier, Lizzy, passed away. After briefly volunteering with a rescue that only accepted purebred Jack Russells and having to turn away wonderful dogs of other breeds, she decided to start a rescue that accepted ALL breeds of dogs who needed a loving home.
