Kitten Foster Caregivers Urgently Needed!

Kitten Foster Caregivers Urgently Needed!

Love kittens? The Washington Humane Society (WHS) needs your help! You can help save lives by providing space and care for the more than 70 kittens in need during this busy summer season.

In the last week alone we have taken in over 75 kittens and 40 adult cats. As the open admission shelter in the District, we never turn away an animal who needs our help, but our space and resources are limited. We are calling on our caring community to provide an invaluable, life-saving service by simply opening your hearts and homes to kittens in need for a little while as we seek permanent homes for them.

Foster Monday: Sasha

Foster Monday: Sasha

This week we get to know Sasha! Her foster caregiver Megan Troy shares Sasha’s story with us below. Let’s work together to find her a great home this week!

I’m not sure there could be a dog sweeter than this little girl.  Sasha is such a cutie!  She’s been through quite a lot in her short life, but you’d never know it.  Sasha was found as a stray and it was immediately noticed that she was missing an eye.  Not to worry, though – this little darling isn’t letting it hold her back one bit.  Sasha loves to run and play with all types of dogs, and gets along great with cats and kittens.  She absolutely adores making new friends and is such a hit at the dog park.  When she’s not having fun, she is eager to please and loves to snuggle up next you and chill.  This adorable pup is going to make some lucky person very, very happy.  If you are interested in adopting Sasha, please contact mtroy@troylawgroup.com.
