My pup’s day care accidentally closed the car door on his tail and broke it (pretty bad break with bone exposed). They immediately took him to Petworth Animal Hospital around 5:55pm on a Wednesday evening. They admitted him and promptly closed at regular business hours at 6pm. At 6:20p after speaking to the van driver by phone, he said I will get my dog back from the vet on Friday (2 days later), which I found unacceptable and immediately called the vet.
To my incredible shock, their phone was unavailable and I wasn’t even able to leave a message because the mailbox was full! At that point I had no idea whether my pup received any care or what state he was in. I also called my regular vet in Dupont and asked if anyone had requested his records, they had not. Note, this was Wednesday evening and Petworth Animal Hospital does NOT have hours on Thursday. I spent all night agonizing about the state of my pup and drove first thing in the morning to see if I could retrieve him. I spent 4hrs in the rain waiting for someone to show up at NOON at which point (more…)
Update: “The cat’s owner was located. It is an indoor/outdoor cat that recently lost its tags.”
“I found this cat on my stoop on Park Rd in Mt Pleasant. Neighbors haven’t ever seen this cat before. It is in my house right now in a quiet room with food, water, and a litter box. Despite the gargoyle pic, she is super friendly. Hoping maybe someone knows if this cat belongs to someone!”
“Last seen in Mid-August near 1st and V St, NE
Black and Gray with orange collar “Templeton”
Tail slightly bent at tip
Shy but friendly
If you have seen him, please call or text 586-872-1328
We live on Rock Creek Church Road NW right near the intersection with Georgia Ave (near the metro). He got out around 7:15, and got spooked so he bolted. He is a gray cat with black stripes. The undersides of his back paws are black and his left ear is clipped. His name is Woodrow, but like most cats, he doesn’t really respond to his name. He’s exceptionally friendly, but we imagine he’s very scared right now (and wet), so he’ll likely be hidden somewhere small and dry. He’s likely very skittish, so if anyone finds him they can contact us at [email protected] He’s also chipped, so people can also call the Humane Society at 202-576-6664. They’ll give directions to make sure he gets to them, and then back to us.”
