Dog found on Rhode Island Ave NE near 3rd Street NE – no collar. He seems to be a pretty young poodle mix, with all white fur except the ends of his ears, which are grey. Found him running in and out of traffic, didn’t seem too savvy on the streets. At first he was really shy, but then let me pick him up and has been pretty friendly since then. He has not been neutered and is pretty thin, which makes me think he’s been a stray for a while.
Anyone recognize him or heard of any missing dogs in the area of Eckington, please feel free to email me: emilyabird(at)gmail(dot)com”
“35 lb. shephard mix
Found wearing white collar, no tags and not micro-chipped (was checked at WHS this afternoon)
Found approx 2pm on 600 block of Hamilton NW
Extremely sweet dog, very people friendly
Recently neutered (which leads me to expect that there is certainly somebody out there missing him).
If you know this super sweet little guy please email m.elizabethrobinson(at)gmail(dot)com or call the Washington Humane Society.”
My sister’s dog got away this afternoon around Sherman circle around 5:40. She is a brownish black mutt about 35 lbs. Her name is trout. She us wearing a green harness and an orange leash. She might be a little skittish. Anyone with info can contact 202-503-9141. Thanks.”
My husband and I were running in Rock Creek this morning and found the cat below in a tree. Well, actually, the park ranger and some other folks found him, but we volunteered to take him to a vet to see if he was chipped. Anyway, long story short – he IS chipped, but we’ve had no dice thus far contacting the owners. The chip service tells us his name is Ace. He is the sweetest cat ever, and it seems like he has been well-loved.”
If anyone knows Ace please contact alison.roach1980(at)gmail(dot)com

My fiancée and I live in mount pleasant and a cat followed us home into our apartment this evening (tues 8/20). She is declawed and although she has a collar she has no tags, which leads us to believe she is an indoor cat that has gotten lost. She was very thirsty, and we are hoping for some help in finding her owners.”
Are dates up yet for doggie swim day 2013 in the local pools?”
I’m told this year it will be the Sat. after labor day (Sept. 7th) but they are still finalizing which pools will host. Last year it was at Upshur and Francis pools but I’ll update when it’s been finalized.
