FCAR is a small, locally-run 501(c)(3) non-profit charity, founded in 2018 by 3 veterinarians, dedicated to saving dogs from high-kill shelters and other dangerous or unhealthy situations. We operate through a network of volunteers and foster homes in the DC Metro area. Our efforts are funded by tax-deductible contributions from compassionate supporters and organizations who want to make a difference in our community. We love and treat each dog we rescue as if they were one our own dogs, and we are committed to their well-being for their entire life. We know that we, unfortunately, cannot save every dog, but we make sure that every dog we save is forever changed.
