Murphy – City Dogs Rescue
This happy pup is Murphy, a 5-8 year old, lab-pointer mix fromCity Dogs Rescue. Murphy is a mellow, low-key guy who does well with adults, children, dogs, and cats alike. He’s crate-trained and housebroken – no accidents in the house and hasn’t chewed any of his foster mom’s things. He likes exploring outside and would love to lay his head in the lap of his new best friend when he finds his forever home. You can see just how gentle and sweet-dispositioned he is here. You can apply to adopt Murphy or any of our available dogs on our adoption page, apply to foster one of our pups here, or meet some of our pups at one of our upcoming events!
Abbie – Lucky Dog Animal Rescue
This striking girl is Abbie, is a 3-month old domestic tabby/torbie colored kitten from Lucky Dog Animal Rescue. Abbie love to romp, snuggle, and play with her adoptable siblings, Chip (the yawning kitten in her photo) and Frankie. Though a bit shy at first, she warms up into an absolute sweetheart. She lets her foster family pick her up and love her, and being with a family, she is used to cat-savvy kids and dogs too! If you think Abbie, or any of our rescues, might be a good fit for your family, please send our adoption questionnaire to Erica at [email protected]. To learn about fostering one of our animals, please contact us at [email protected]. And, feel free come check us out at one of our events this weekend!
Sasha – Rural Dog Rescue
Sasha is a sweet, young pup from Rural Dog Rescue, taken in after she had been hit by a car and suffered a fracture that, on a scale of 1-10, the vet placed at a 13-14. Even after all of this, as you can see, this girl was still wagging her tail and smiling in the shelter prior to her medical care. Now on her way to recovery (with all four legs), she will be on Rural Dog Rescue’s webpage soon, and you can apply to adopt Sasha, or any of our animals, by sending the adoption application to [email protected]. If you would like to foster one of our animals, feel free to send the foster application to that email address as well. Our next adoption event is this Saturday, June 29th, at Howl to the Chief, 733 8th Street SE from noon until 3pm.
Sheba – Tails High, Inc.
A 2-year old cat with a velvety coat and emerald eyes, Sheba is a Tails High, Inc. beauty. Initially found as a stray, she’s come a long way from her thin and cautious former self. Now, she loves being picked up by her foster mom, purring the minute her feet leave the floor. She even nuzzles when asked for kisses and flops over for belly rubs. She has an absolute ball playing with her foster sisters and would love to have a playmate in her forever home too! If you would like to adopt Sheba, or any of our adoptable cats and kittens, please complete our adoption application on our website. You can also visit us at one of our upcoming events!
Joni – Homeward Trails Animal Rescue
Joni is 4-year old minipoo from Homeward Trails Animal Rescue. Found on the highway, Joni still has a long road ahead of her to heal her breaks and remove the bebe that was shot into her hip. But, this resilient pup still has a cute fuzzy face, wags, and has won some hearts along her way from the road, to the shelter, and now with the rescue in DC. If you’re interested in adopting Joni, please complete our dog adoption form and email it to [email protected]. You can also meet some of our adoptable animals at one of our events!
Walter, as you came to know him last month from Homeward Trails Animal Rescue, is now officially Walter Montgomery and able to stand following his surgery!!! In his picture, he is thanking his vet technician post-surgery – not only is he thankful for all of the help that he received from her and the rescue, but also from the many of you that helped him get where he is now!
