The Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation began with a couple of restaurant owners with a love for animals. At first, it was a few “lost” dogs needing a place to stay until they could find new homes of their own. Soon it grew into taking in dogs who were about to be euthanized in shelters and finding adoptive families for them. Finally, the efforts of founders Pamela McAlwee and Ross Underwood coalesced into the establishment of the Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation (LDCRF)in 2001 and the opening of the “Lost Dog Ranch” in Sumerduck, VA. Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation: Helping Animals find their way since 2001. They are a non-profit animal rescue organization saving the lives of thousands of homeless and abandoned pets every year. They rescue dogs and cats facing euthanasia in overcrowded shelters and place them for adoption in loving homes. ALL of their animals are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. The Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation places about 2,000 dogs and cats each year into adoptive homes, for a total of more than 25,000 since 2001!

Each weekend, volunteers organize to run numerous adoption events in the Metro-DC area at PetSmart and PetCo stores. Before adoption, every animal is spayed or neutered and their vaccines are brought up to date. Other medical treatments, like deworming and care for injuries, are also conducted before the dogs and cats are offered up for adoption.

The 61-acre Lost Dog & Cat Ranch in Sumerduck, Virginia is where most cats and dogs await being adopted. Animals that require special care and those that are too young for adoption are placed in foster homes until they are ready for their permanent homes.
