WASHINGTON, D.C. – April 16, 2018 – Daro Realty, LLC, one of DC’s oldest and most revered residential brands with ten buildings and 800 luxury rental apartments under management, announced a successful adoption event that raised funds and facilitated adoptions for City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties. The event – which drew over 40 people including foster families from the community – was held at Daro’s newest property under management, The Vintage, located at 3146 16th Street NW.
City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties rescues adoptable cats and dogs from overcrowded and high-kill shelters. In just five years. they have placed over 3,000 animals in loving homes and foster care. These are animals that were just days or even hours from euthanization for no other reason than a lack of space.
The event was a huge success, with animal-loving Washingtonians showing up to meet, play and interact with the animals, fill out adoption applications, and donate to the organization’s ongoing effort to rescue homeless pets. The organization, which earned Washington City Paper’s “Best Nonprofit” last year, raising a considerable amount of money, 100% of which will be used to pay for medical care, shelter fees, and transportation expenses of rescued animals.
“We are proud of our partnership with City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties. We also greatly appreciate our community’s opening their hearts to animals in need and their contributions to helping these animals find loving, happy homes,” said Daro’s President Carissa Barry.
Daro Management looks forward to hosting similar adoption events at some of its other buildings in the future. Cats are permitted in all of Daro’s ten building communities. Dogs are permitted with breed and weight restrictions in all but two communities (Sedgwick and Parkway).
