City Dogs Rescue was outside Nellie’s Sports Bar on U Street last Saturday with three dogs up for adoption: Hans, Lucky and Meme. If you missed them, look for them again tonight, April 11, at Nellie’s — it’s SmartAss! Trivia and Dog Night. The games begin at 8pm, and the dogs will be upstairs.

City Dogs Rescue was formed in September 2011 as a volunteer-based, non-profit organization (with pending 501(c)(3) status) to rescue adoptable dogs in overcrowded and high-kill shelters where resources are severely limited. Many of the dogs that City Dogs Rescue takes in are just days and sometimes hours away from being euthanized, for no reason other than lack of space. Since September, 32 dogs from City Dogs Rescue have been adopted by individuals and families in the DC metro area.
