Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation
Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation (LDCRF) owns and operates an Animal Care Center (ACC) in Falls Church, VA and we have lots of volunteer opportunities during the week and on weekends for dog walking, adoption event dog handling, cat socializing, as well as basic chores!
IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ BEFORE SIGNING UP FOR A SHIFT
**Volunteers need to HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH DOGS, CATS AND BE AT LEAST 18 YEARS OF AGE. For everyone's safety, CHILDREN ARE NOT PERMITTED IN THE KENNEL AREAS without prior authorization.
GET STARTED: Attending a New Volunteer Welcome & Orientation is required for all first-time volunteers at the kennel. Prior to a new volunteer signing up for a shift at the ACC, each person completes new volunteer orientation; this includes volunteers interested in working with dogs and cats or assisting with basic care center chores.

Volunteers use the large white metal gate at the right side of the building to enter.
There is a small staff cleaning and making sure the animals are cared for, however volunteers are needed daily to walk dogs, help clean dog kennels and cat cages, socialize cats, participate in dog play groups, and give lots of TLC! If you want to get in quality critter time, now is your chance! Sign up, See you soon!

If you are a dog walker and want to “Champion” your favorite kennel dog at our Seven Corners (7C) PetSmart Adoption Event?, then you are just the person we (they) need to show potential adopters how great they are! We’ve added volunteer time slots at Saturdays, 12-3pm, for our Animal Care Center volunteers to sign up!
