If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 2 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.

“Diesel will truly be a special companion and he wants all of the love humans can offer. Diesel has been described as “melty” because he will just snuggle up with you and “melt” in your lap. Diesel is making progress learning how to greet other dogs when he’s on the leash. He loves to take walks and explore the neighborhood. Diesel is a great combination of ready to play and ready to snuggle! Diesel just needs a few biscuits and he will adore you forever! Apply today to meet this sweetie! Please visit City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties’ website to apply: www.citydogsrescuedc.org/adopt.html.”

The Latin meaning of Regina is “Queen,” and this Regina has all of the regal qualities of a Queen, without any of the fuss. We are not saying she does not love to be brushed and petted and loved on, but we do know she’s as easygoing and sweet as they come. With her loving nature, she’s a beautiful, calm companion and an all-around great cat. Do you need a Queen for your royal court? If so, apply to adopt Regina now! If you are interested in meeting a cat, we require an adoption application. Please visit City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties’ website to apply: www.citydogsrescuedc.org/adopt-a-city-kitty.html.”

“Parker and Charlie are a bonded pair but are not required to be adopted together. They are very gentle, inquisitive, experts at taking naps and hiding, but mostly they are great with kids and dogs. They can be adopted through the Humane Rescue Alliance.”
