On July 13th, the Technomics team had the privilege of showcasing pooches for the Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation adoption event at the Seven Corners PetSmart. During the event, our team handled dogs, walked them around the premises, and encouraged them to perform tricks to entice potential adopters. The dogs’ ages, in human years, ranged from a few weeks to 8 years old. Attendees from Technomics included Karyna Todd, Kathleen Hudgins, Katie Taylor, and Scott Bidlack.
About Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation
In 2001, the Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation (LDCRF) was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) by Pam McAlwee and Ross Underwood. McAlwee and Underwood were Arlington, VA restaurant owners who decided to formalize their efforts to save homeless pets in their community. They purchased 63 acres of land in Sumerduck, VA and began building The Lost Dog Ranch, a kennel facility for homeless pets with plenty of outdoor space for dogs to run and a cage-free building for cats. Being a largely volunteer-run organization with a small paid staff, the Foundation provides care to animals at the Lost Dog Ranch but is always in need of volunteer help. Many other animals are cared for in a network of volunteer foster homes and PetSmart Cat Adoption Centers.
Every weekend, LDCRF holds off-site adoption events at local PetSmart and PetCo stores and places more than 2,000 dogs and cats per year for adoption. Since 2001, LDCRF has saved the lives of more than 28,000 homeless pets.
