Several Falls Church businesses are helping Lost Dog and Cat Rescue celebrate its 1,000th “Dogventure” on Saturday, Oct. 5.

With approximately 1,000 outings completed just in 2019, the program may be the largest of its kind nationwide. In celebration, the organization is hosting an all-day Dogventure this Saturday, featuring one of their longest-stay dogs, Ariel.
