Foster a Feline Friend, or Adopt a Cat for No Fee This Month!

The Washington Humane Society (WHS) invites you to be a part of Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat Month! All cats age 2 and older are available for adoption for no fee throughout the month of June. Plus, all amazing cats of all ages living in “Kitty City” at our New York adoption center are fee-waived. Can’t adopt now? We are urgently seeking kitten and cat foster caregivers during our busiest time of year. Counselors and staff are available to answer questions to help you find your new best friend or help a cat in need by providing temporary TLC.  

Margaritas and Mixed-Breeds: It's Cantina Marina's'Yappy Hour'

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA) - Waterfront views and adoptable dogs, mixed with a margarita or two: it's "Yappy Hour," hosted by the Cantina Marina restaurant, located on the SW waterfront. Set for Monday June 25, 5-8 p.m., this dog-friendly social event will benefit the Washington Animal Rescue League.

Adoptable dogs will attend, and those interested can get  application information along with other animal care info. Cantina Marina will donate a portion of the evening's proceeds to the Washington Animal Rescue League.

There will be an information table for meeting and greeting four-legged friends from the League (and two-legged staffers too). Patrons are encouraged to bring along their own dogs for the perfect chance to socialize with other pet lovers and canines.

One-year-old foster pup Mocha found a forever home this week! We are so grateful to Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. and his DC staff, our first official Congressional foster office, for taking great care of Mocha and supporting our mission. We love our incredible growing team of life-saving foster volunteers!

“Last summer I helped cat Pie find an adoptive family in College Park, MD. They have renamed him Tom because he looks like the 'Tom' in Tom and Jerry.  Pie quickly became friends with the couple's dog Sydney, and here are the two of them lying together on the bed.”
