As charming as the midnight sky, Charlie is a gorgeous cat with shiny black fur. Charlie is a mini-panther, but don’t let that intimidate you! Charlie is known to be an angel that is friendly and loves a good snuggle. When it comes to treat time, catnip is the top choice. Charlie loves anything with catnip, especially his catnip banana toy! While he is a friendly and sweet cat, he is a little shy when it comes to dogs and other animals, but, with time, his patient and kind nature shines through. Charlie will be sure to brighten your days with his large moon-like eyes and affectionate personality. Charlie can’t wait to find his forever home — could it be with you? Apply today!

Hi my name is Chaya and my name means life! My Thanksgiving wish is to have a wonderful life with a new family!

Chaya is such a loveable docile dog, with a big heart! She loves people and will greet everyone with a thorough tail wag. She is extremely adaptable and became comfortable in her foster home very quickly! That said, she is still building up her confidence — Chaya can be a little skittish on walks and in the house when there are unexpected loud sounds. Chaya will certainly let you know what she likes (belly rubs and treats) and what she doesn’t (rain and fireworks) and is always curious to learn more about new things.Chaya is a great companion and will keep you company during mundane tasks. She loves your undivided attention and would be best in a home without other dogs. Chaya is very smart, a creature of habit, and she loves the consistency of a routine. She has even learned the words “sit” and “down”! Chaya would thrive in a home with adopters who can help her learn and will give her plenty of snuggles along the way. The best thing about Chaya is that no matter what happens during the day, she is always around for cuddles and belly rubs before bed! Apply today!

“Dear PoPville,

I was wondering if the PopVille community could steer me towards any apartment complexes in DC that don’t charge an arm and a leg for large breed dogs, let alone restrict them? I’m finding a lot of these places don’t even allow for large four legged friends. Any and all recommendations/suggestions are greatly appreciated!”


From a press release:

“Miracle and Sippin’ Santa–the adored Holiday-themed cocktail pop-up bars– are overjoyed to be returning for the 2021 season with new partner locations and new drink menus around the globe. Entering its eighth year, the Miracle team is committed to making this one of the best seasons yet, with new cities and teams joining the mix and previous bars returning. After the challenges of 2020, the ability to bring both cocktail concepts safely back is a momentous occasion to toast to this Christmas. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

I was wondering if we could crowdsource Thanksgiving sandwiches in DC. It seems that a lot of the sub shops that used to have them (Your Only Friend/Fight Club/Capproitti’s) have all closed. Would love to find out if there are other spots in DC that have them, as they are my favorite this time of year!”
