“I found this dog tonight at 14th and Florida Ave NW. She is without tags, probably about 2 years old, and I’m guessing a yellow lab/retriever mix (she has short, light golden hair). She was soaking wet , so may have been out in the rain for awhile.”
“I found a dog today on the corner of Ninth and Emerson NW who ended up following me home. He doesn’t have any owner information but did have a rabies vaccination tag. I called the Washington Area Rescue League but they can’t find his tag number in their system. Just wanted to see if anyone was missing their dog? He seems really sweet and is just sitting by the door at my house quietly.
“This adorable cat was hanging around my kids’s school this morning and following folks around. The school is at 1800 Perry Street NE, but he was first seen on further east on the other side of South Dakota Avenue. The cat doesn’t have a collar but is clearly a well cared for cat. The school’s crossing guard said she would try to bring the cat to the shelter when she finishes her shift.”
“Enrique is a 9 year old indoor/outdoor guy weighing about 10 pounds. He lives on Monroe St. NW between 11th and 13th. He’s disappeared for days before but was recently diagnosed with heart disease so we are concerned.”
“This Siamese (or part Siamese?) cat has been hanging out on my front stoop on Harvard Street NW in Columbia Heights. He came over and let me pick him up today. He seems lost and friendly so I think he may have a home. I have him in my bathroom for now, and will start investigating potential microchipping/home location tomorrow.”
“Lost cat in McLean Gardens at 39th and Porter streets northwest. He must have darted out during trash collection. He is a 5 year old neutered male, gray and black stripes with a white chest. Please let us know if you see him! [email protected]”
Not sure if you – or any of your readers are aware – but my boyfriend and I had a surprise this morning when we tried to drop off our dog for dog daycare this AM at Planet Pet. We were told that Planet Pet no longer offers dog daycare services – and that they never will. Really?? Since when?? We’ve been going to Planet Pet for years, and we have had NO communication about this change of service. How does one run a business like this? Completely unacceptable. The young lady at the front desk gave absolutely no explanation – seems like company procedure, considering that we also got no notice. There were no flyers, no emails, no phone calls. Seriously – nothing.
This is a shame. They were the only dog daycare in the area left where I felt my dog received proper attention. It’s also a shame because how are they seriously going to sustain a business on 14th street with not providing a key service in the city? Good luck. And I hope those customers who had daycare packages (which were not cheap) with Planet Pet were fully reimbursed. I also hope the owner and manager of this place pull their heads out their asses and learn to communicate with their loyal customers – because a “sorry we no longer do daycare – surprise!” is an a**hole move.”
In an effort to bring a more chic, elegant, and unforgettable experience for your dog AND you, Planet Pet will close its doors for the last time on Saturday, November 14th at 10pm and re-open mid-December under new management, a new name, a new vibe – from the inside out.
Keep your nose in the air, your paws on solid ground, and your ears perked. DC’s next big pet pavilion is coming soon!
More details to come, but for now….

“My cat Odin is missing and I am wondering if you could post about him? He went awol from 8th and Fern NW Tuesday night. No collar, no chip. He’s pretty friendly and is seen here DJing. Please note that he doesn’t like to be picked up.
“Fergie is a 12-year-old mostly white calico with orange and grey spots (in the front in this picture). She’s very friendly and was last seen at 5206 Kansas NW. Please contact 248-506-3014 with any information. There is a reward.”
“Found this handsome fellow at the corner of New Hampshire Ave NW and Upshur St NW. Very friendly, looked lost and nervous. Flea collar, but no ID tags. Followed my two dogs and me home. He’ll be at the Washington Humane Society on New York Ave NE.”
