Our mission is to end needless euthanasia at shelters in the National Capital area by rescuing and finding suitable lifetime homes for our cats and dogs, promoting spaying and neutering, and educating the public on responsible pet ownership.

We provide adoption, rescue and education services by finding suitable lifetime homes for our cats & dogs, rescuing cats & dogs on death row at local shelters and educating the public on responsible pet ownership. We aspire to offer in-house spay and neuter services.

We live by our core values of integrity in all our dealings; compassion for all life; respect for our animals, our constituents and each other; and teamwork. We are responsive to our donors, adopters, volunteers, and the public. Our volunteers and staff are recognized for their responsibility, dedication, knowledge and helpful service.

We provide these services for cats & dogs that would otherwise be euthanized, potential adopters, donors, local animal shelters, and our community.

Fancy Cats Rescue Team was founded in 1997 by Catherine McCullough Awad. In 2018 Fancy Cats Rescue Team became Fancy Cats & Dogs Rescue Team as we expanded begin rescuing dogs. FCDRT is a leader in cat adoptions in Virginia, with approximately 1,200 adoptions yearly. We had over 100 dog adoptions in 2018 and strive to become a leader in dog adoptions.
